Jared Jacoby’s review published on Letterboxd:
As someone who has not seen one second of the Rocky Balboa movies, I really loved this film! The fights were intense, the performances were great, the writing was fantastic, and story was interesting. By far the best part about this film was the relationship between Donny Creed, and Rocky Balboa, because they felt like family. The only thing I do not really like was the romance, which I think the story could have done without. Overall, Creed is a wonderful addition to the Rocky franchise and you do not need to be a fan to enjoy it!
