Quick-Thoughts: Creed II

Creed II—slash Rocky VIII—doesn’t necessarily introduce any new elements nor revelations to the notoriously illustrious boxing-mania franchise, but that doesn’t automatically mean that it isn’t a tidy inclusion and a furthermore, even snugger—possible—conclusion to the Balboa/Creed legacy. 

Let’s face it, who wouldn’t want to sit through some more meticulously crafted, inspirational, bone-gnawing training/ workout montages, AND view some more strikingly choreographed, fierce, one-on-one, championship boxing matches, AND listen to some more of Stallone’s sublimely motivational harangues?

Now, pepper some more heavy-weighted, emotionally flamboyant charactorial themes and you have yourselves a fine sequel, indeed. (Verdict: B-)
