Creed 2 seeks to settle old scores

A three-decade rivalry between former heavyweights gets taken on by their children.

The center of focus shines on Adonis Creed (Jordan) who decides to fight Viktor Drago, the son of disgraced Soviet boxer Ivan Drago (Lundgren) who killed Apollo Creed during an exhibition fight.

Despite repeated warnings from his trainer and mentor Rocky Balboa (Stallone), against going ahead with the fight, Adonis feels the need to avenge his father’s death and Ivan seeks to restore his father’s legacy, which was tarnished by his shock defeat to Balboa in Rocky IV.

Creed 2 brings forth an intense showdown of boxing rivalry that has curved a name for itself in the Rocky film franchise.  The film casts Michael B. Jordan (Black Panther), Sylvester Stallone (Escape Plan 2), Tessa Thompson (Sorry to Bother You), Dolph Lundgren (Skin Trade) and German boxer Florian Munteanu.

Creed 2 premieres this Friday at Century Cinemax, Acacia mall.
