It would put many films on the ropes.Michael B. Jordan returns as Adonis Creed, with Sylvester Stallone by his side as former heavyweight champ and trainer Rocky Balboa.The sequel pits Creed against man-mountain Viktor Drago, the son of Ivan Drago, who killed Adonis Creed's father, Apollo Creed, in the ring in "Rocky IV".That stirs up trauma for Rocky, who feels responsible for the elder Creed's demise. Dolph Lungren returns as the elder Drago and there's an appearance by Brigitte Nielsen, who played Drago's wife in 1985 and was a real-life wife of Stallone.Stallone got his mitts on the script after having had a role penning all the "Rocky" films but sitting out writing "Creed" and teams up with Cheo Hodari Coker, creator of the Netflix superhero hit "Luke Cage".It's in the small moments between crusty Stallone and cocky Jordan where the film finds its sweet spot.The creep toward more cinematic bombast needs to be watched vigilantly (remember the last few "Rocky" films?)
