My latest book, Reel Leadership, is now available on Amazon. If you love movies and leadership, you will love this book.

The latest installment in the Rocky/Creed film series has hit the theaters, and it’s a wild ride through Adonis Creed’s (Michael B. Jordan) past and future. In Creed 3, Adonis has retired from boxing when his friend from childhood returns. However, when Damian Anderson (Jonathan Majors) returns, he has a big chip on his shoulder. Adonis has to step up to the challenge of boxing his former friend and bringing him back from the brink of ruin.

A young Damian (Spence Moore II) had taken the fall when a young Adonis (Thaddeus J. Mixson) attacked Leon (Aaron D. Alexander), a person who had terrorized Adonis at the juvenile detention center he was in. Adonis attacked Leon at a convenience store. When Leon’s friends (Brian Neal and Corey Hibbert) jumped in, Adonis was in trouble. That’s when Damian pulled a gun to protect his friend. The police showed up, saw Damian’s gun, and arrested him while Adonis ran and escaped.

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first heard of the Creed movie. The title sounded generic until I saw the movie preview for Creed.

Then it was all over. I knew what Creed was about and I was excited, to say the least.

Creed is the latest movie in the Rocky film series. It could be considered a legacyquel. A movie that continues a movie series but with a new legacy character.

In Creed, the movie picks up with Apollo Creed’s son Adonis.

He’s a troubled kid. He’s also the product of an affair.

He doesn’t have the best chance of succeeding. But isn’t that what Rocky movies are all about?

Rocky’s about an underdog fighting against all the odds. Sometimes the underdog wins. Other times he doesn’t.
