VERDICT – 2/5

 
PROS –
1) Creed desert training – “Runnin (feat. A$AP Rocky & Jacob Banks)”
2) Creed with his baby in the gym. A well-written scene but badly executed.

 

CONS –
1) The entire Tessa Thompson plot was tedious
2) The climax was supposed to give some redemption to Ivan Drago but by the end of the movie, you feel bad for this character.
3) We already knew about the regular “come-back” plot but this sequel haven’t got the soul of Rocky. The direction is awful.

 

 

QUOTE –
Ivan Drago: Because of you… I lose everything. My country. Respect. You ever see stray dogs in the Ukraine? They go for days without food. People spit on them, they are nothing. No home. Only will to survive… to fight. I have son. All he knows…… is this.
