Supplying a bit of history, the young filmmaker came to him early on with the idea for Creed, and Stallone put him off. Stallone quipped that he wasn't even born until Rocky IV. Then Coogler made Fruitvale Station, a game changer, starring the actor Michael B. Jordan.

Dwight Brown

When you step into the theater to watch this boxing movie, don't look for Rocky. Yes, you'll see and feel remnants of that spirit. But Creed is its own story. Its own franchise. It's the rebellious son that wandered out on its own. For that reason, Baby Boomers and Millennials will dig it.
