Michael B. Jordan (Fantastic Four) and Tess Thompson (When a Stranger Calls) join Sylvester Stallone (Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot) in a sequel to their Rocky spinoff with Creed 2. The emotional baggage is high and the melodrama thick as Dolph Lundgren (Masters of the Universe) returns as Ivan Drago, the Russian beast from Rocky IV.
Writer/Director Boots Riley delivers a critically-adored film about a man who discovers a unique talent and has to decide if he will use that talent to enrich himself at the expense of his fellow men, or subvert his skill and speak truth to power. Also, there are half-human/half-horse people. Seriously. Mike loved it.
