After an engaging round one that saw Jordan move into the role of fighter and Stallone gracefully filling the role of trainer, Creed II gives us a development not only worthy of the series, but in better than most of the other films.
The onslaught of press behind this film is warranted, but not only for the intersectional reasons the media wants to throw in your face. This is an ageless story about a world we all would love to visit. Who it represents is important, but it shouldn’t be a victory limited to race. To leave it there would belie how important it is to humanity that we tell good, relatable stories. This is a great film.
