Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan) never knew his famous father, boxing champion Apollo Creed, who died before Adonis was born. However, boxing is in his blood, so he seeks out Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) and asks the retired champ to be his trainer. Rocky sees much of Apollo in Adonis, and agrees to mentor him, even as he battles an opponent deadlier than any in the ring. With Rocky’s help, Adonis soon gets a title shot, but whether he has the true heart of a fighter remains to be seen.
Rocky returns to Pittsburgh for an advanced screening on Wednesday. November 18 at 7:30 PM at AMC Waterfront 22. Please comment below with your favorite boxing movie. I’ll start with mine– The Hurricane (1999).
