Creed ★★★★★

With excellent writing and direction from Fruitvale Station's Ryan Coogler, fight scenes that are brutal, intense, and exciting, wonderful characters and storytelling, fantastic cinematography, a terrific score, a great deal of humor and heart, and superb acting (the standouts being Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone, the latter delivering the performance of his career and both actors sharing amazing chemistry with one another), Creed is the best installment in the Rocky franchise since the original 1976 classic.
