Some movies are best left without tinkering. It is tempting given the following they have, to make a quick buck, but you would be doing a disservice if you don't do justice to the legacy. Ironically, the movie which charts the path of Adonis Creed (Michael Jordan) trying to prove himself a worthy successor to his dad, legendary Apollo Creed who lost to Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) doesn't live up to the hype or the legacy. The whole movie is a build up towards the final clash between Adonis and Ricky Conlan, the lightweight champion of the world. For the boxing connoisseurs, that is a bad bout really. 


The movie was supposed to be about Rocky's chemistry with the illegitimate son of his greatest opponent, adopted by his step mother. He trains himself, self-taught and has a 15-0 record in underground fights. But eventually, he quits his job and moves to tough Philly where he pesters Rocky into training him. A love interest in the form of Bianca comes into his life too. However, the movie neither has much emotion, like a Warrior, nor intense boxing like in Million Dollar Baby, Cinderella Man or in the Rocky movies. The soundtrack is hip and tries to infuse some adrenaline from time to time, but you find it hard to connect with the protagonist's need to come out of his dad's shadow. You don't feel the love in his love tale nor the bonding between him and Rocky, even as the latter is battling his own fights. It is a watchable movie for Rocky fans but if you are expecting to see some high-adrenaline drama and some gut-wrenching emotion, this movie, laced with cliched dialogues and mostly cliched scenes, will disappoint.
