Creed ★★★★½

Goddammit! What can I say? Jordan and Stallone are fucking fantastic and Coogler is one skilled director and writer. He goes through the tropes? Is that the word, hate that word, well he goes through them in the same old redemption boxing story beats, difference is everything feels genuine and really heartfelt. As moving as it was for me I managed to get through it without dropping one tear, then....I can't.....Damn you Bill Conti!
