New York Times

'Creed II' affirms two great truths of our pop-cultural moment: that Michael B. Jordan is currently the ascendant American male movie star and that the revived 'Rocky' franchise is the only heroic Hollywood multisequel narrative worth caring about.

The people making this movie know all the beats they have to hit, and hit them they do, jab by jab. If the results aren?t as artful as those by 'Creed' director Ryan Coogler (Steven Caple Jr. steps in), they still feel earned.

We?re now officially eight movies deep into the 'Rocky' saga. Shocking, I know. But just when you thought that every last nook and cranny of that universe had been strip-mined for narrative fodder, along comes 'Creed II'.

Michael B. Jordan's ferocious performance anchors a sequel that's rousing and effective but lacks the powerful punch of the first 'Creed'.

Nothing here has been freshly thought out, nor is there a drop of surprise as to the story's trajectory, forcing the viewer to tolerate conventional emotional beats and stale plot contrivances.
