Michael B. Jordan opened up his directorial debut with the third installment in the Creed franchise, released to the public on March 3, 2023. Oh man, this movie hit just as hard as Rocky Balboa did. After watching this trilogy about Adonis Creed and his journey to becoming the world’s heavyweight champion, I can confidently say Creed III is my favorite of the three movies that came out. 

“A motivational tribute to overcoming your past and the value of hard work shown through the sport of boxing. One of the best post-covid movies to hit the theaters,” senior Caden Hall, said.

Creed III focuses on Adonis Creed (portrayed by Michael B. Jordan) retiring from his career as a professional boxer and instead sees him spending more time with his family and helping to run a training gym. All goes to plan for the champion until his past comes back to haunt him. After spending 18 years in prison, Damian “Dame” Anderson seeks his childhood best friend, Adonis, hoping to see him again. However, Creed, enlightened by reconnecting with his old buddy, learns that perhaps Damian’s intentions aren’t what they seem. 

Creed III was such a moving movie; one moment you’re on the edge of your seat, the next you’re sympathizing. I love how there was a lot of action, but at the same time, there are a lot of chill moments,” senior Cade Burgon, said.


There’s nothing wrong I can say or write about this movie, unlike my previous article about Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania. Michael B. Jordan and Jonathan Majors performed a stellar performance for audience members in a drama-action-packed film. The Creed trilogy is one of my favorite movie trilogies, and I recommend it to everyone who may seem interested in watching them.
