Creed (Coogler, 2015)


An emotive tour de force only rivaled in quality by the original Rocky. Cinematographically superior and topically relevant. Some incredible moments including the slow motion run surrounded by motorcylists, the Steadicam long takes of entering the new gym and of the first fight, and the aerial circling of the final bouts shot for shot. Nas and Tupac mixed into the lot for added flavour.

87/100 – Excellent.
