Creed ★★★½

Rocky: Episode VII The Creed Awakens

Hilariously, if you've seen the new Starwars, that above statement more or less sums up this new movie almost to the T. A charismatic new young boxer is guided by a famous old boxer through a storyline that is basically exactly the same as the original Rocky. I did feel that this movie captured a lot of what made the original special. I feel less disappointed by this movie than Starwars though, even though they did pretty much the same thing. It's well acted, the fights are thrilling, and it hits some great nostalgia cues. I don't know what more to say, its a good boxing film.
