Following in the footsteps of a classic franchise, should 9/10 times not be attempted. But, guess what? This film turns out to be that 1.
The former World Heavyweight Champion Rocky Balboa serves as a trainer and mentor to Adonis Johnson, the son of his late friend and former rival Apollo Creed. Although it is pretty clear in the film Creed that Donnie's (Adonis) mother does not think so. In fact, she makes it clear that she is very afraid of him following his father’s footsteps of, dying in the ring. Of course, that does not stop him and he goes to the man that fought his father himself and asks him to train him. And you know who that is. ROCKY!
Creed's Relation To Sport Business
Boxing is a sport that is not for fair hearted. But before you completely turn away from the idea, know that it isn’t just straight punching. It goes deeper than that. You can jab, cross, hook, uppercut. And those are just the types of hits. Defending is a whole other game. Boxing is said to go back to ancient Greece, so you can imagine the regulations have been fairly reconsidered over the years.
One thing that is clear in this film, Michael B. Jordan TRAINED for this film. With multiple scenes in Creed demonstrating the limits he pushed his body; we cannot help but want to run into the gym immediately ourselves and get moving. But we can’t all have the famous Rocky ourselves training us himself for that moment in the ring we wait for our entire lives.
