Creed III Review
Director: Michael B. Jordan
Writers: Keenan Coogler, Zach Baylin
Starring: Michael B. Jordan, Tessa Thompson, Jonathan Majors
Runtime: 1 hour 56 minutes
Synopsis: Adonis has been thriving in both his career and family life, but when a childhood friend and former boxing prodigy resurfaces, the face-off is more than just a fight.
Kriss, Ro and Brandon have differing opinions on the latest Creed film. It seems to come down to expectations. If you have lowered expectations because this is Michael B. Jordan's first time directing and he's also directing himself, this might be serviceable. If you were expecting a film that was in line with the previous Creed films, you might be disappointed. Jonathan Majors is absolutely fantastic but the script seems to do a lot of skipping over parts and "tell not show" that the previous films didn't do. There's a good film that could have been made here but it's not showing in the final product. Part of that could be because there's a first time director but there's also a lot of script issues as well. If this was the first film in the series, these flaws could be excused. But seeing as how this is the third film in a trilogy, something just feels off.
