Creed ★★★★★

"One step at a time. One punch at a time. One round at a time."

When they first announced Creed, I thought it was a mistake. The last Rocky movie seemed like a perfect conclusion to the series, and I felt another continuation would just be unnecessary and lacklustre. Boy, was I wrong.

Creed doesn't put a foot wrong. The acting is faultless (Jordan deserved an Oscar nod, while Stallone gives his finest performance since Rocky Balboa), the emotional drama is downright spellbinding, and the boxing scenes are some of the best I've ever seen on film.

Seriously, if you have any love for this series, watch Creed as soon as you can. It's arguably the best Rocky film since the original, and I can't wait for more.
