Like I did with my Terminator Genisys review I'm going to go over the things I loved and didn't love about the flick.
Lets start with the negative first,
Some of you may disagree but I personally felt it could have used a bit more...
My second and final major complaint with the movie was with the lead actor,
This is especially obvious when Jordan is doing scenes with Sylvester Stallone, a movie star that radiates charisma. You never feel like you're watching an actor perform when Sly is on the screen. It also doesn't help that the character of Adonis himself is very bland and generic, especially when you compare him to other characters in the franchise like Paulie, Micky, Drago, Clubber Lang, or even Tommy Gunn who was another protege of Rocky.
Well that's all for the negatives, now what did I like about the film?
I'm giving Creed a 9/10, a fun ride from start to finish with a plot that's very familiar yet feels new at the same time. The lead character could have used a bit more distinct characteristics...But, equipped with beautiful cinematography, and a well paced story, Creed comes close to greatness.
On another note, we have had quite a few people asking in the comments sections and sending us emails inquiring about the slowing down of the site in the past month or two. All I can say is, this place has always been primarily an Expendables news source, and there has not been much Expendables news lately. When Expendables 4 news heats up, rest assured Expendables Premiere will as well.
Be well everyone, and for those of you who celebrate it, have a kick ass Christmas.
