When you heard another "Rocky" movie was coming out – a seventh – you thought, 'How many "Rocky" movies do we need?' It turns out we needed seven.Stallone is now 69, and "Creed" wisely doesn't attempt to get Rocky Balboa back into the boxing gloves. The film's about another fighter – young Adonis Johnson, whom we first meet as a child in a LA juvenile detention center.Adonis wins Rocky over.Being a "Rocky" movie, it all comes down to a climactic fight.As Adonis and Rocky begin training, an unexpected challenge comes in the form of a serious health scare for the older man.If the finale in a "Rocky" movie isn't gangbusters, you're sunk, and Coogler (who co-wrote the screenplay) saves his best moves for last, staging a match (kudos also to cinematographer Maryse Alberti) that should have you on the edge of your seat – even though you know, already, that there's no way Adonis is going to go gently into that good night.
