Creed II

The life of Adonis creed has become a series of compromises. While he is torn between duty and training for the next big fight, fate brings him a new mission impossible. Opponent is closely associated with the history of his family, which only raises the stakes before entering the ring. Rocky Balboa will always be on the side of creed, and together they go to battle with the ghosts of their common past, find out what is really worth fighting for, and realize that there is nothing more important than family. Need to get back to basics, to remember what made you a champion, and that no matter where you ran you're not hiding.

"Creed 2", a sequel to the surprisingly successful "creed" 2015-th year, is faced with the problem of the plague of unplanned sequels: the necessity to meet the expectations of the audience, the high standards of the original and stay in the framework of creative freedom. The schematic of the sequel can be seen there and although the eighth edition in a sprawling series of "rocky" (and to consider the "creed" can only be combined with this kynoselen until the events of the film refer to the line in the background looms Sylvester Stallone with a bitter face) is not the worst the more like a longtime fan of Boxing series, he disappointed. As and projects following the "rocky 2", the script suffers from the necessary to move the story and look for a new story path. In as the first "creed" used box as the idea of heritage, "creed 2" departs from the topic (but to honor of the film, is it still on a tangent) and focuses on soft structure and predictability. All that the viewer thinks when he hears about the impending match Victor I. Drago with Adonis Apollonium Creed, so or otherwise, finds its embodiment in the sequel, albeit with the spontaneity and energy.

Perhaps the success of the first film lay in the production team. The Director of the original Ryan Kugler went to shoot the mega-successful (Hm) "Black Panther" and, accordingly, receives a more promising proposals for work for "creed 2" he had to limit the position of Executive producer. Stallone, who wrote the screenplays for six major film projects about the rocky, came back for the typewriter screenwriter and, let's be honest, the Chapter on the adventures of him on-screen student on a Boxing career contains the same drawbacks as and treshovye film about the legendary fighter. The Director of the sequel was appointed as a certain Stephen Kapla, much younger (not to be confused with a senior!), whose summary modest. The result — the drop in quality is obvious.

A continuation of the "creed" has a traditional three-act structure. Adonis creed, recovered after losing the in the end of the previous film, making its way back to the top. Soon it goes from Viktor Drago — the son of Ivan Drago, the man who killed the father of Adonis on the ring. Rocky protests against revenge, but young and hot boxer out for revenge. Meanwhile, Adonis decides and personal problems: his girlfriend is pregnant.

It should be noted that a large number of UPS and downs in a single film has ton. The ending seems obvious with the start, but the creators lazily trying to bring to a predictable outcome of some weak moves. The dramatic side at some point becomes even stronger than Boxing; latest like added "for show". Rocky also detracts from the title character. Although it is unlikely that it was the desire Stallone to register in the frame, it there are so many, that creates a weird dynamic. In "Krige" star was highlighted with the beginning, and Stallone kept the young actor, as well as and character is a mentor of his black protégé. In"creed 2" the lines the characters are blurred. Perhaps the most intense scenes generally relate to the older generation: heroes, rocky and Ivan.

The most interesting factor was how times the last. Creed, rocky and Bianca, of course, move forward in the development of its characters, but the most notable hero was Ivan Drago. It turns out that after the defeat of hands rocky his career collapsed, and his wife Lyudmila left it. From Russia it was banished on Ukraine, and now this shame (!) he just not able to teach his son Victor to fight in the atmosphere of anger and rejection. In largely "creed 2" how about the relation of fathers and sons: the relationship rocky and creed, and also Victor and Ivan have sufficiently developed to provide emotional impact. Frankly, it seems that if "creed 2" would be called "Drago" and processed appropriately, it would be a stronger film.

Critical acclaim and  the"Oscar" look at the first "creed" rightly surrounded and the sequel to match the original. Fighting diluted lethargic and unfocused dramatic moments, in some degree encouraging end reduces controversial beginning and the sagging middle. Surprises to expect not necessary, but style and also actors on the lead roles are forced to assess the implementation of the dignity.

Yes, "creed 2" was released predictable and a bit clumsy, although the emotional depth in human relationships is present here. The characters are cleverly evolution, making certain cinematic touches in the protracted franchise. It is easy to take in the film, watching the scenes of Boxing and spectacular debacles surrogate father and the son (creed and his mentor rocky) and these relatives — Drago and Drago Jr. Clear stylistic step is truly evident in the moment, when, in the time of the climactic match in Moscow on the ring, you notice a huge inscription in Cyrillic "BOXING" — return to the formula of the source material, but not a rethinking of the legendary "rocky". Not grow old soul veterans: a Shakespeare story, like never cynical and weak, though in such interpretation of "sins of the fathers" you can find its advantages.

Sylvester Stallone have not first time goodbye the way rocky Balboa, who made him a celebrity worldwide. for the first time this happened 1990, when the undefeated champion had to fight at street his protege Tommy Gunn. Then the fifth part of the franchise was poorly attended, although it is viewed a very interesting idea. Then it was a long gap in 16 years and Stallone went back to the rocky, to atone for the sins of the past film. Turned out at this is just wonderful and neither might even in mind to think about that rocky will come back. But exactly what happened after 9 years after the fight with Dixon in performed by Antonio Tarver.

Of course, back in the ring rocky is already could not, otherwise it would be already a parody. Understood this all, including himself, Stallone. To fortunately, Director Ryan Kruger decided to take rocky in as a support character and bring on the first plan of Adonis creed, son of the Apollo, which gave Balboa start in life. Now on the screens out the second film about Crede and according to the entire Stallone say goodbye to with its rocky times forever.

The plot of the film involved on long-standing opposition to family Drago with Creed and Balboa. The main, if so may say so, the villain of the movie is the son of Ivan Drago, the real machine for murder on the ring. But Adonis is not going so just give up because he has got a family, for which you need to fight to the end. And even fear to break under the onslaught of Drago, Jr. stops Adonis, who needs reputation and opportunity continue to earn as long as you need it friends.

Of course the main motivation of Adonis are not money, call of honor and the memory of his father, which is to protect. The film is quite coped with all the arguments in favor of drastic actions Adonis and sets him brains, so on some cases, even the famous and beloved by the public champion should go to myself to take a "cold shower".

Sylvester Stallone in the role of rocky all also magnificent. He knows is the life of a sportsman and trying to convey all his experience to the student. Rocky knows that he made a lot of mistakes, but Donny he finds an opportunity to correct, if not all, almost all. Also here again there is Milo Ventimiglia in the role of Robert Balboa, rocky's son. And that means the story of our idol really is closed and time to release.

I believe that "creed 2" is not perfect in the second, but it aims objectives and catchy handles them on fine. All rocky fans must watch. Well and the way the audience just enjoy it.

"creed 2" was one of the most anticipated movies of 2019. After all, it is a direct sequel to "rocky 4", Pro Ivan Drago. Actually, with this film and started my rocky. And what is strange, despite the fact that "rocky 4" is the real rusofobno cranberry, but to me this movie really liked it. He was dynamic, vibrant, with good fights and all this plus the Russian colors, and of course, he Ivan Drago, did the trick. Then I have read all the other films about the rocky. And three years ago, came the sequel-remake-restart creed. And it was really good, because it was not "rocky 7", and it is the "creed" about Adonis creed, who makes a career and which rocky Balboa just helps us to get back on the right path. Plus good fights, production and "creed" was a really good sports movie.

Therefore, the "creed 2" was so I expected, and when it turned out that it appears Drogo, and the story will be based on the confrontation between creed and Drogo, Jr., I actually have been happy. But that movie came out and honestly, che he yourself.

And problems are already actual plot. Even though I was good to be back Drogo and enjoy Luzhniki the panorama of Moscow, but I can understand. And why creed and Drago, Jr. hate each other? Adonis wants to avenge the death of his father, but so it killed Ivan Drago, but not Victor and Adonis have that to throw the challenge. And Victor Drago wants revenge for his career is his father, but because it ruined rocky Balboa, and Kredi to do with not have. But while the Victor, that call rocky is not throws, he even the side is looking. But they feud with Adonis, so if they really the fathers of each other killed. And the reasons they responsible for the sins of the father and why they feel for each other hatred, is unclear.

The second problem is that the film simply no battles. I maybe something is not understand the box. But why all the fights in this movie look like; rivals simply stand on one spot and swaying with feet leg, touch each other hands? Starting from the first fight Victor, when he is in the center of the ring and batters hand galloping around the opponent. Or first battle of Adonis and Victor, when they simply jump and a little bash each other. Yes final battle the same opponents barely not gently pressed against each friend. I looked she thought: "This is fighting?". Where the intensity? Where attack on each other? Why even the same "rocky 4" cut, 30 years ago, fights in looks hundred times more powerful "creed 2".

And why, by the way, Victor Drago's name is "machine for murder" that he did this for the movie? The post contend, so his father is the man on the ring was killed, and the car still is he?

Another problem that the film is just zalesiany to impossible. If the beginning is anything else, it with humor and friendliness, then then the feeling arises that I wrote the script, because how else to explain what I predicted all the plot moves. Here the girl protagonist bad — she's pregnant — Yes, true. Victor Drago challenges the Adonis — this will want to avenge the death of his father, rocky will be his to talk, they fight, rocky didn't come to fight, Adonis is not win — all in one one. All other dies: spiritual recovery, merciless training methods are unorthodox, brutal battle, the main character supposedly fell in him, but stands the last moment with the help of a flashback to the near; all this is.

And where I wonder saw it all these techniques? Maybe the previous six films about the rocky, plus "Cride", and also "Warrior", "Lefty", "Fight with shadow", "Tumbler" and in other dozens of films about box.

And understand, I am nothing against clichés does not have, if it somehow beat, and use the new, but "creed 2" is not the case. All the above clichés here, just take this and...they are. Heavy training, spiritual rehabilitation, it just all there. Here what was this a scene where rocky and Adonis trained in the desert the place "where Champions are restored"? This place never been mentioned, not in one film and the story is especially not affect, because prior to that, rocky as without him treated. And generally because of klishirovannyh to the middle of the movie is boring, in large part because of the fact that I know will.

I confess, the creators only one surprised. The outcome of the first fight Adonis Victor, his I expected, then surprise.

Conclusion: "creed 2" — this is a typical film is a disappointment. It is not bad, no. But there are no nothing interesting. The first "creed" was interesting, because it was new, fresh. But here? Cliché, endless samopovtorov, fighting no.

Frankly, I the movie was more interesting to watch a couple of Drago. For their relationship of father and son, their it really is a pity, in largely because I understand that both are victims of fate.
