Creed was one of my favourite movies in 2015. I'm not even a Rocky fan, but that movie was so great it did not matter. So when I heard there was a sequel in the works, I was excited.
Over the course the past year, I have felt my excitement drain away.
I'm not bashing these movies, what I'm bashing is the need to pull Creed back into Rocky's past. There is a tonal shift that seems impossible to pull off. Creed's story was all about making peace with the past, and setting out a new future. Bringing back Drago goes completely against that.
We'll have to wait till the end of the year to find out...
