This Thanksgiving brought a lot to the table, especially the side dishes, but nothing amounted to more than the fantastic movies people were able to watch this holiday season. One of those movies was Creed II. If you love a good ole boxing movie with the famous Rocky Balboa, then you’ll love the young Adonis Creed in his movie series Creed. It is based off the son of Apollo Creed, who has followed in his father’s footsteps to be a boxing champion.

Adonis Creed, played by Michael B. Jordan, has been fighting for a long time, and the movie shows his character off as a down to earth, trained boxer who is making a new image of his family name. He meets up with his mentor, who he was mentored by his father Apollo Creed, and his name is Rocky Balboa, played by Sylvester Stallone. He agreed to train Adonis who fought in the previous movie to become a new champion. Now Creed has to deal with the newest fighter, a much bigger, stronger, and meaner looking fighter, Victor Drago, played by Florian Munteanu. Victor is the son of the man that murdered Creed’s father, Ivan Drago, played by Dolph Lundgren.

One shocker in the movie is that it features one character from the 1985 original Rocky IV, Brigitte Nielsen, the former wife of Ivan Drago. She returns out of nowhere and totally changes the perspective of young Victor Drago. Because of this, Creed may have the upper hand when dealing with his opponent’s past indiscretions; however, Creed still has his own past to work through. His own life has dealt him much pain and heartache when dealing with the death of his father and mother. Both fighters concealed a lot of emotion when this fight had to happen. This is considered an honor vs honor match for the family name.

The Thanksgiving box office hit a record high $314 million dollar spike with the help of all the movies this week. Over $55.8 million of the money was comission from Creed II. If you really want a good movie night with the family or a nice date night, I recommend Creed II. Michael B. Jordan displays one of his better performances in this film, and it might just be better than Black Panther, but I am up for an argument. If you really loved Rocky IV, then you’ll love the new generation of this historic rivalry.
