    First one was amazing, absolutely loved it....so much better than that Jake Gyllenhal one that came out around the same time (though that was also pretty OK).

    Looking forward to this. I hope there's a training montage set in the Russian wilderness. :)

    A second film ?
    The first one was very disappointing .

    Guy doesn't look anything like Drago/Lundgren.

    This could wreck the franchise if they mess it up

    Last film was great.

    Rocky 4 was my favourite, so really looking forward to it.

    It has that same look n feel. They're hardly gonna copy the story?

    No but the storyline will be pretty predictable I bet, Drago Jnr taunts Creed Jnr over the death of his father saying he will do the same to him, yadda yadda yadda, Stallone and Drago Snr exchange some taunts, yadda yadda, Creed wins exacting revenge on the Drago family or whatever you wanna call that...

    Now if its anything other than the above, I'll be happy :pac::P

    Solid Trailer.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,759 ✭✭✭ Pelvis


    Anyone else think the first movie is over rated? I watched it for a second time the other week. It's decent, but it's 30 minutes too long. There are some ridiculously cringey scenes, like when he's running with bikers, wtf was that about?

    Anyway, hoping the sequel is better.

    YES!! Apart from that scene, its a pretty good film.

    Looking forward to this one.

    It looks good, but I'm slightly worried about the change in director. Ryan Coogler nailed it with the first Creed, but had to skip the sequel for Blank Panther. Hope this new guy is up to the task, and also that the fights won't be as ridiculous as the Rocky IV ones!

    That was to do with Philadelphia, the locals in the streets would be on their scramblers and stuff, would be known for it, think it was to show his connection with the city, the same way rocky used to run through the crowds in the streets, the inner city has changed but they still get behind their fighter in their way.. That's what I took from that scene anyway...

    Rocky looks
    like he's coming down with a brain disease or one that affects his motor functions

    Most definitely, I though it was very disappointing.


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,932 ✭✭✭✭ PTH2009


    Saw this today

    Pretty good movie with great boxing action with simple enough story but little pedictable tbh

    Rocky 4 is in a different league to this and should not be compared


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,010 ✭✭✭ velo.2010


    They showed a fight scene on Graham Norton. It looked like they CGI'd both boxers in some parts of the sequence. That's disappointing if true.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,565 ✭✭✭ ZeitgeistGlee


    Saw it last night, thought the first Creed movie was better but it's still an enjoyable addition to the series. Felt a bit too derivative of Rocky 3 and 4 for it's own good.

    Good film. Went by quick enough. And they didn't drag out the scenes, got on with it when they had to. And the acting was good as well.

    I would recommend it.
