    I was glad they didn't spend THAT much time on it at the same time..

    Saw it last night. Heard it wasn't making the money they projected so I had to support Mike B. It was good. I liked how Stallone played the background and let dude shine while also getting his one liners in.

    There wasn't wall to wall action but the story was entertaining. I wanted Avon Barksdale to get more screen time tho. Was his "you ain't built for this" line even in the movie?

    I give Rocky movies their credit. They have you wanting to throw combos at somebody during those montages.

    How though? It's performing no worse than Rocky Balboa which ended up being one of the most profitable movies in the franchise. I wouldn't be surprised if like Balboa it ends up making an extra 40 million + just off home video sales and rentals alone.

    @suzyscrew yeah you heard wrong. It's outpacing 'Balboa' quite easily and widely regarded to be over performing. Good shot at cracking a 100 mil on a 35 mil budget.

    Movie was great way better than Southpaw. Id fuck the hearing back in that deaf chick

    I just watched.

    It was very good but Southpaw was better to me.

    But the camera work was way better on the boxing scenes in Creed. There were some crazy long uninterrupted takes during some of the fight scenes.

    Creed was def had more boxing in it but Southpaw had the better story.

    Both good tho.

    I was just watching some sports show and they mentioned it. They weren't hating or anything. I didn't investigate; I just wanted to do what I could to support the movie.

    If you're thinking local, this movie is beating Rocky balboa. Overall, including overseas, it's not. So in that respect, I heard right. 6 mil international for creed compared to 85. 87 overall vs 156 for Rocky Balboa.

    Yeah but Creed's run isn't over. We'd also need to do some investigating into international release dates. Could be that it hasn't released in many places overseas as of yet.

    The only Rocky movie to ever under perform at the box office was Rocky 5 and that is a fact.

    You know how it is when a movie has been out. Every week it makes a little bit less. Creed won't get close to Rocky Balboa internationally. With Star Wars coming out, it's a wrap. Besides, a lot of these foreign countries ain't trying to see a "Black" movie. It sucks but it's true. Denzel went thru the same shit.

    No matter what, Creed was profitable. He'll get a sequel. I'm glad I saw it.

    Saw this day after thanksgiving...I really enjoyed it,especially the music..Bianca's in particular..Glad they went with a ecclectic sound for her character and not something trendy. And I guess I'm in the minority when I say I liked Conlan's intro more than Adonis's towards the final fight. Dont get me wrong PAC is GOAT. But from a overall standpoint, from the way Conlan's intro was shot combined with the music and fire was epic. The scene in its entirety was classic..Very reminiscent to Rocky IV..Was satisfied with the way it ended,it felt realistic.

    Thought they did great job taking elements from the old rocky movies while refreshing them for today's generation. Actually wish that dirt bike scene could of lasted a lil bit longer. Also showing each fighter's record popping up was a nice touch.

    As far as complaints...my only main gripe was when he said he had to "take a sh**" before going into the ring. It seemed out of place for a scene that was suppose to be serious. The theatre I was at ate it up but I was like "eeehhhh". I notice Hollywood does that more often with what I call forced humor. Definitely didn't take away from the movie though.

    Overall good movie and looking forward to buying the dvd.

    Cosign the Conlan intro. I checked it out on YouTube as soon as I got home. And the kids on the bikes was definitely a nice touch. Without them, I think that run up the street would have seemed corny.

    That part was corny. Dont front.

    They laid the cheese down thick on a few scenes.

    Him running up the hill than Rocky opening the window with a smile on his face to watchover while Donny shadowboxes in the middle of the street.

    Then the part where he is mirroring his daddys moves on YouTube with the projector.

    The life flashing before your eyes scene that brought him back from the dead.

    It was a good film and my money well spent but it had some dumb parts.
