Creed III has been well received so far, including a glowing review from our own JimmyO. “Creed III lives up to the ring that Rocky built,” JimmyO wrote. “The third in the Creed films series is inspiring and powerful. Jordan has done a marvelous job not only continuing to bring us this great character but also directing a solid continuation. If there is one minor complaint, the film is so fast-paced that it feels almost too short. Yes, this is a crowdpleaser of a movie. With excellent performances from the main cast, especially Jordan and Majors, it’s easy to invest in the story. Don’t pull any punches. If you are a fan of the previous films, you’ll want to see Creed III as soon as possible.” You can check out the rest of his review right here.
