In 1998, Adonis “Donnie” Johnson, the son of an extramarital lover of former heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, is serving time in a Los Angeles youth facility when Creed’s wife, Mary Anne, pays him a visit and offers to take him in.
Seventeen years later, Donnie walks away from his job at a securities firm to pursue his dream of becoming a professional boxer.
I haven’t watched a rocky movie in years. Personally, they are just not me. But, I took a chance and watched it this weekend. What do I think… First movie in a long time that I think works great as a chick flick and great as an action movie. All the roles were papercut but it was a great movie. Of all the rockies, I think it was the best. That being said… I think the reason I was able to watch this movie and appreciate it is because of my age. I am not a kid so I can understand what rocky is going through and I can understand creed’s situation. Watch it with a chick… you won’t go wrong…
