About Creed

In the captivating movie "Creed," we are introduced to a dynamic cast of characters, led by the talented Michael B. Jordan in the role of Adonis Johnson. Adonis, a character brimming with ambition and determination, is the illegitimate son of the late heavyweight champion Apollo Creed. His journey is one of self-discovery and the pursuit of greatness in the boxing world, a path that is both challenging and rewarding.

Another significant character in "Creed" is none other than Sylvester Stallone, who reprises his iconic role as Rocky Balboa. In this film, Rocky takes on a new role as a trainer and mentor to Adonis. His character, much like in the original Rocky films, is one of resilience and wisdom, having been through the highs and lows of the boxing world himself. Rocky's guidance and support become crucial to Adonis' journey, as he navigates the complex world of professional boxing.

The relationship between Adonis and Rocky forms the heart of "Creed." The film explores their bond, which is built on mutual respect and a shared understanding of the trials and tribulations of the boxing world. Rocky, having been a friend and rival to Apollo Creed, sees in Adonis a chance to honor his late friend's legacy. Meanwhile, Adonis finds in Rocky a mentor who can guide him through the physical and emotional challenges of his chosen path. This dynamic duo, with their shared history and common goals, makes "Creed" a compelling watch for fans of the Rocky franchise and newcomers alike.

Creed is part of the Creed Collection, together with Creed II and Creed III .
