I didn’t expect to be crying so much, or at all, going to a movie about a boxer.
I love Antoine Fuqua as I worked with him on Tears of the Sun.
He is an actor’s director as you can tell by these performances.

The story line surprised me and I am grateful for him telling this story amid the machismo of the boxing world.

It stars Rachel McAdams who I love from The Notebook, which also stars Ryan Gosling.
The lead is played by Jake Gyllenhaal and Forest Whitaker co-stars.

I also liked the social worker, Angela Rivera, played by British actress Naomie Harris.

  1. I hope to see Creed. I’m a big fan of the Rocky series, and I’ve heard nothing but great reviews for this film.

    1. Welcome. Peggy! Let us know what you think of it after you see it.
      It is nominated this awards season for a few things as well. Enjoy it!
