英会話ブログ その734     Movie Review of "Creed" (2)

2015/12/18

It would be normal to wonder what more can be possibly happen to Rocky ?  He's lost all his money, been betrayed by friends, suffered the death of his wife, and battled brain damage.  (Some, who aren't nice, have suggested that Stallone himself has battled brain damage and lost, but I wouldn't say that).

"Creed" has received very good reviews, and in fact some have suggested that Stallone is a strong contender for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar award.

In the story, Rocky, who is long retrired, is approached by a young black boxer who is the son of Apollo Creed, who was Rocky's opponent and later good friend.

Creed was killed in the ring by Russian boxer Ivan Drago in Rocky 4.  (Yes, Rocky got revenge)

This being the case, the boy, Adonis "Donnie" Johnson, played by Michael B. Jordoan, never got to know his father.

Naturally, Rocky trains Donnie for his big fight, and also serves as a father figure to him.

Donnie even puts on the famous USA flag boxing trunks like his father wore.  Critics say the movie's mix of action, sadness, joy and humor by Stallone and the mainly black cast makes it a standout film this year...                    (G.K)
