Creed hits hard. One of the most emotionally charged films of the year, it packs a punch. Director and co-writer Ryan Coogler has crafted a powerful experience while reinvigorating a franchise the right way, through natural character progression. With devastatingly powerful performances and the best boxing sequences since Raging Bull, Creed is a sure-fire knockout. My apologies for all the boxing puns, it was too tempting. But damn is this movie good!
