Creed Brings Along an Emotional Ride

“One step. One punch. One round at a time!” Creed, directed by Ryan Coogler, is a 2015 American sports drama film. Actor Michael B. Jordan stars in the film as Adonis Creed, an amateur boxer who had to literally fight his way through life because of the hardships he faced during his early years. The entire plot of the movie consists of Adonis training extensively in order to prepare for his big fight against “Pretty” Ricky Conlan. Personally, I enjoyed watching the film. The movie Creed is indeed a very inspirational and motivational film that I recommend everyone to watch.

Throughout the movie, Adonis Creed proves that he has heart with every hit that he gives and takes. He proves that he isn’t scared of any challenge that is thrown at him. Even when he gets knocked down (he literally gets knocked out while challenging people to fight him) he always manages to pick himself back up and improve his skills as a boxer. Day after day, he spends hours in the boxing ring training with his mentor, Rocky Balboa.

Although he was an amateur, he scheduled fights with pro-boxers who he knew he would lose against. This simply shows his will to get better as a fighter. Even though his opponents had more skills than him, he knew that having the opportunity to fight pro-boxers would give him exposure and boost his confidence as a fighter.

The movie Creed revolves around the sport of boxing, but there are many values a person can obtain by watching it. Values such as perseverance and being able to work hard can impact a person’s life if people simply take the time to watch the film.
