Check it out one of my friends, Jill Doctor, attended the CREED screening in Los Angeles on behalf of AskKirbyCarroll.com. Check out her review, and let me know if you guys go see the film this week. I want to know what you think, tweet me your feedback @askKirbyCarroll.

cheesy in any way. Michael B. Jordan is a great actor – and great to look at!! I thought it was cool that they also twisted the story, so that Adonis (who’s played by Michael) has a different background than Rocky. Adonis started rough, in foster care and juvy, but then is raised in wealth by Apollo’s widow (who isn’t his mom but basically adopts him). Rocky fought to make money and a name for himself to pull himself up. Adonis has everything he needs, but he fights because it’s in his blood – BUT he doesn’t want to get by on his dad’s name. So he’s sort of a street kid, but then not at all. Gives him more depth as well. Rocky as a character is also well used – the film is definitely not focused on him, but he’s a good dose of comic relief and very real as a person to compliment Adonis’s story.
Creed comes into theaters November 25, 2015.
