More Info:
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Creed mingles go-for-broke romance with bloody pugilist thrills—but instead of feeling like a rehash, it works like gangbusters. Coogler honors and builds upon the Rocky formula so that it feels both comfortingly old-fashioned and bracingly new.

    I feared signing on to Creed might derail Coogler’s and Jordan’s careers. Instead, this revitalizing crowd-pleaser solidifies my belief that these two have the potential to create really great art.

    Slate Full Review
  • Jake Cole

    One of the Ryan Coogler film's greatest traits is its reticence, its refusal to say 10 words when two will do, or to say one word when silence says it all.

    Often, extending a film franchise signifies a lack of imagination. But Creed is a knockout.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Rocky might not be the brightest guy, but he knows things. He has his limitations, but he is, in his own way, extraordinary, and when we look at his/Stallone’s face, we can have no doubt that Rocky has gone through life and learned things. He has been awake all these years, and growing. With no exaggeration, this is a beautiful and moving thing to see.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    Creed is a dandy piece of entertainment, soothingly old-fashioned and bracingly up-to-date.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Odie Henderson

    There are as many quietly effective moments as there are stand-up-and-cheer moments, and they’re all handled with skill and dexterity on both sides of the camera. Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Creed is corny like the old Rocky films, but riveting like the old Rocky films, too.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    By the time Coogler wraps things up, his film manages the difficult trick of looking back with earned nostalgia and standing alone as a genuinely strong dramatic piece.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    In the end it’s a movie about legacy, and it more than preserves the Rocky franchise’s. It reminds you why it was great in the first place.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    Creed does justice to its roots while trying something new.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Many of the boxing genre’s conventions are observed in the screenplay by Mr. Coogler and Aaron Covington, and the fight sequences are brutally effective.... But the film is full of life and loose humor...and Creed often transcends the genre by playing with movie mythology.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Coogler and company do fine work convincing us against our better judgment that nothing we see is preordained, that anything can happen within the four corners of the ring. You can't ask a "Rocky" film to do more than that.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    The themes of love, loyalty, ambition, honor and legacy that lend sinew to the story are delivered with such a clean punch that they as feel as fresh as they did in 1976.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    One of the year’s warmest and most crowd-pleasing surprises.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    After a long, long stretch in which the series’ attrition had come to feel like even more of a bummer than intended — no more Mickey, no Apollo, no Adrian — the franchise has welcome new life. But instead of going by Rocky, he goes by Creed.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Director Ryan Coogler has pulled off a miracle: He taps into the beautiful simplicity and deep well of emotion of the 1976 original, capturing its essence and spirit while branching out into a new story.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Brian Truitt

    Equally powerful and feel-good, Creed is an entertaining reminder that this franchise isn’t down for the count yet.

    USA Today Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Coogler provides enough rousing moments to get the adrenaline pumping - there are times when the urge to jump up and cheer is almost too strong to resist. But there's more to Creed and it is elevated by the quiet, subtle elements.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Thanks to a charismatic, natural performance from star-in-the-making Michael B. Jordan, a script from writer-director Ryan Coogler that expertly navigates paying tribute to the franchise while creating an effective stand-alone film and fine work from Stallone...Creed is a terrific addition to the “Rocky” canon.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Half the film, written by Coogler and Aaron Covington, revels in cliches, skillfully. The other half sidesteps them and concentrates on scenes and relationships that breathe easily and draw us in the hard way: not by narrative fiat or bald calculation, but through well-written and shrewdly acted encounters.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Jeff Baker

    Creed is no "Raging Bull" -- it's a little too long and throws in an unnecessary disease to gin up the emotional content of the third act -- but it's surprising proof that iconic franchises that started in the 1970s can be revived in all the right ways.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Jesse Hassenger

    Creed works far better than it should, and does so twice: as the unexpected payoff to a nearly 40-year-old series, and as the confirmation of a major talent in its director.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Creed proceeds to hit the same beats as six Rocky movies preceding it, all the way to the Big Fight. But there's a difference here. This is the first Rocky movie Stallone didn't write, enabling Coogler and co-writer Aaron Covington to bring new perspective and respect.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Movies don’t always have to be “how things are.” When they’re as warm and rousing as Creed, they can be “how we want to make things.”

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Joe Dziemianowicz

    Creed packs a mighty punch.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Once you’ve seen the work Stallone and Jordan do in Creed, the idea of a “Rocky 8” doesn’t sound so bad.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    Of Stallone’s surprisingly tender performance — a definitive late-career triumph — enough can’t be said

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Andrew Barker

    With his “Rocky” spinoff, Creed, writer-director Ryan Coogler confirms every bit of promise he displayed in his 2013 debut, “Fruitvale Station,” offering a smart, kinetic, exhilaratingly well-crafted piece of mainstream filmmaking, and providing actor Michael B. Jordan with yet another substantial stepping stone on his climb to stardom.

    Variety Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Creed isn’t a complete TKO, but it goes all 12 rounds with vitality and flourish.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    The good news is that Coogler puts his own stamp on it. You can feel this fine indie talent stretching his wings in the mainstream.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Rodrigo Perez

    Rousing in spirit, surprisingly emotional and visually dynamic, filmmaker Ryan Coogler’s first studio movie, Creed, is a worthy successor to the best of the “Rocky” movies and proves the young director is the real deal.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Sylvester Stallone doesn't get back in the ring in Creed, but he still comes away as a big winner in this far-fetched but likeable offshoot of the geriatric Rocky series.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Tim Robey

    Like the 69-year-old Stallone hoisting his frame gingerly into play, Creed takes a while to move. But by the end, it’s genuinely moving.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    Since so much of Creed’s emotional oomph comes from audience familiarity with the past films, the movie mostly shadowboxes with its past.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    The script may feature numerous wobbly passages in which everyone eerily states precisely what they are thinking (an unfortunate tradition that runs throughout the series) but if anyone can sell it, it’s Stallone and Jordan.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    Instead of playing like the first of a series of Adonis Creed movies, Creed never rises above being one more by-the-numbers “Rocky” retread.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    At this stage of this saga, you kind of know where it’s going and which emotional buttons will be punched, the ones I predicted way back in 1984 with my little "IV-I.V.” crack. Another two hours and 13 minutes of it, even with decent “Rocky” style (roundhouse punch after roundhouse punch) is hardly merited.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Kate Taylor

    For the first time in the series, Stallone did not write the script, yet director Ryan Coogler and his co-writer Aaron Covington aren’t exactly brimming over with fresh ideas: Worn thin with repetition, the sentimental old premise muffles suspense and dampens emotion.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    Creed wants all of the Rocky drama but invests in none of the smarts.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Richard Brody

    Ingeniously, Coogler has transformed “Rocky”—the modern cinematic myth that, perhaps more than any other, endures as a modern capitalist Horatio Alger story of personal determination and sheer will—into a vision of community and opportunity, connections and social capital, family and money.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Chris Hewitt (1)

    The best Rocky film since the original, honouring the Stallone legacy while setting it in a different direction. Feel the need. The need for Creed.
