“If Apollo Creed can give an underdog a shot, why can’t you?”
There’s one memorable skeleton in Creed III, but no Italian Stallions. Also, it’s a refreshing permutation of the Rocky formula with a bit of Cape Fear and some Street Fighter style combo heavy boxing. Jonathan Majors is even more menacing and magnetic as a man without Kang powers.
My VHS cover pull-quote: “Rocky died on the way back to his home planet of Italy.”
