REVIEW OF CREED AKA ROCKY 7
|year: 2015 cast: Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson Director: Ryan Coogler|
|Really A Secret?|
And as an actor, Jordan has decent chemistry with Sly, making for a much better "son" than that last whiny businessman punk, and provides the right amount of swift rhythm as a brawler, but despite what people keep telling him, he looks absolutely nothing like Apollo (Weathers) and lacks the cocky charm and charisma that made dad so fun and legendary. And hey, if that private bout between Rocky and Apollo at the end of the third film was such a secret, how did LeRoy Neiman capture the first punch? And here's a spoiler... Not only did Yo Adrian kick the bucket (which is already known) but, as we learn at the cemetery, so did the scene-stealing, comic relief Paulie, which is a real shame: the ultra-serious CREED desperately needs some levity, and Burt Young could have provided it.
