Creed II 123 Full Movie Plot & Release Dates.
One of the many minor miracles achieved by Ryan Coogler’s Rocky follow-up Creed is the unexpected depth the movie lends to the events of Rocky IV, the thinnest and cheesiest entry in the saga so far. By chronicling the boxing aspirations of Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan), the heretofore unknown illegitimate son of Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers), the film gave Apollo’s Rocky IV death at the hands of Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren) real poignancy, forcing cartoony revenge fodder into the pull of real-world gravity. The new sequel, Creed II, doubles down on this strategy, aiming to stir up Rocky IV nostalgia while also recontextualizing that Cold War-era popcorn movie as a possible family tragedy. As an over-narrating sportscaster might say: It’s a risky strategy, now let’s see if it pays off.
In the years since his heroic split-decision loss at the end of the first film, Adonis Creed has worked his way up to the heavyweight title by winning a series of fights that may not have presented him with major challenges (not unlike Rocky Balboa’s predicament in Rocky III). At least that’s what the mountainous Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu) implies, flanked by his father, Ivan, when he turns up in the U.S. to challenge Creed to a new bout. The movie actually begins with the Drago family, first seen in a shabby apartment in the Ukraine as Ivan jabs his couch-sleeping son in the shoulder to wake him up for an early-morning training session. New director Steven Caple Jr. stages this brief pre-credits sequence without foregrounded dialogue, painting a minimalist portrait of faded glory. It’s also a marked contrast between the Rocky sequels of yore, which tended to begin with a boilerplate rehash of the previous film’s final scene.
Creed II does resemble its franchise cousins in that there’s just plain less work to do here than in the introductory original, which necessitates stringing the story out with personal melodrama rather than more observational moments. Creed agonizes over the challenge to the legacy he’s struggling to build, as Rocky (Sylvester Stallone, folksy and shuffling as ever) warns him against taking Drago’s menacing bait. There are new wrinkles in Creed’s relationship with his girlfriend, Bianca (Tessa Thompson), whose hearing loss is continuing apace, and Rocky has a family-related subplot in the background, too.
