Let me start off by saying, don't even continue to waste your time with this post if you have not seen Creed yet. Go now. RIGHT NOW! What a movie! Not because of spoilers but cause of how good it is.
And as the title says [Mod Edit: changed the title for the benefit of people that reply without actually reading the OP]. It could very well be better than Mad Max, or the 'people's favorite.' I'd go so far as to say it's Oscar worthy and should be at the very least be considered for nomination in a multitude of categories.
Total shocker for me too. Like, Rocky Balboa (Rocky 6 I guess) was alright but what a leap in quality. Show's how great Ryan Coogler as director really is and how Sly should focus more on his acting and less so on the creative end these days, AS WAS THE CASE IN THIS INCREDIBLE MOVIE HERE!
Everyone turned in an immense performance. Every type of emotion is showcased here. And amazingly so, the tear-jerkers don't feel forced at all. Those moments were so good, I'd bet some of you apathetic individuals when it comes to things like this, might find your hands on the proverbial valve cause the waterworks might come runnin.
And the fights! I'll sum it up like this, professional contact sports the past few years had never reached the excitement and satisfaction you'll feel in the few matches showcased in Creed. The first big fight was shot all in ONE TAKE even! Bombastic man.
Now to wrap things up here for everyone. I guess the TLDR of my post:
This is the best Rocky film since 2! TOP 3 in the series easy. All around quality-wise and without accounting for nostalgia and legacy, it could damn well be the BEST ROCKY..... no no no no no.......
THE BEST BOXING FILM EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEVER! Go see this film now.
