Creed

Creed has my admiration because Rocky (Sylvester Stallone), the protagonist of the previous six movies named after him, is content to give the spotlight to Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan). The result is a seventh installment in a boxing saga which feels natural and exciting, instead of repetitive and ridiculous. In a time when movies don’t know when to retire their protagonists and end up embarrassing themselves, it’s a victory in itself.
