COMMENTS: THE FILM FOLLOWS THE STORY OF ADONIS JOHNSON CREED, THE SON OF THE LEGENDARY FORMER BOXING WORLD CHAMPION APOLLO CREED. APOLLO WAS KILLED DURING A BOXING MATCH BY HIS RIVAL ROCKY BALBOA. IN THIS FILM, ADONIS CREED QUITS HIS PROFESSIONAL CAREER, CONVICES THE NOW-RETIRED ROCKY TO TRAIN HIM IN HIS (ADONIS) PURSUIT TO BE A WORLD ACCLAIMED BOXER. DESPITE THE HISTORY BETWEEN APOLO AND ROCKY, AND DESPITE BEING CONSIDERED AN UNDERGOG BY THE BOXING FRATERNITY, ADONIS IS ABLE TO CLAIM GLORY UNDER THE MENTORSHIP OF ROCKY.

THE MATERIAL CONTAINS COMPLEX AND THEMES WHICH EXPLORE ISSUES OF DETERMINATION, FORGIVENESS, PERSISTE, HERITAGE, LEGACY, RELATIONSHIPS, PURSUING ONE'S DREAMS AND THE COMPETITIVE BOXING WORLD. THE MATERIAL IS PRESENTED WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF THE BOXING PROFESSION. THERE IS A POSITIVE MESSAGE OF SUCCESS AND REDEMPTION, AS WE WITNESS THE 'UNDERDOG' CREED FIGHTING AGAINST EXPERIENCED WORLD BOXING CHAMPION CONLAN AND THE BECOMING ONE OF THE WORLD ACCLAIMED BOXERS. THE BOXING SPORT CONTEXT OF THE FILM REDUCES THE OVERALL IMPACT. ALTHOUGH THE THEMES ARE COMPLEX AND MATURE, THEY ARE HANDLED IN A SENSITIVE MANNER WITH NEITHER THREAT NOR MENACE. HOWEVER, CHILDREN BELOW THE AGE OF 10 YEARS MAY BE CONFUSED, DISTURBED OR UPSET BY SOME OF THE ISSUES WHICH ARE EXPLORED, AS WELL AS THE BOXING SCENES WHICH IN SOME INSTANCES RESULTED IN INJURY AND A DEPICTION OF BLOOD. THE THEMES ARE UNLIKELY TO CAUSE ANY MORAL HARM TO CHILDREN OF 10 YEARS AND OLDER.
