REVIEW: “Creed II” is another knockout movie by Stallone

Ben DaviesRebel Host | Rebel Reel Reviews

It’s hard not to lower your expectations when it comes to movie sequels. A lot of the time, they just come across as cheap knockoffs, meant to cash in on the success of a box office hit. But with Creed II, the great Sylvester Stallone pulls it off once again.


This isn’t just a “I must avenge my father!” story. Creed II is a masterclass in film making, with Stallone combining entertainment and strong storytelling with great values, all while avoiding the tired tropes of most movies like this (ok, except for the training sequence…)

Creed II has a lot to say about masculinity, looking for the meaning of life, not being a victim — and even motherhood. Don’t miss it!

Sounds like a good movie.

Conservatives must understand that whenever they pay their bucks to go to a movie,they support the most anti-conservative entity on the planet, Hollywood.
I can live without Hollywood’s fantasies and their constant ultra-left propaganda,haven’t been to a theater since I took my son to see “Babe”, and don’t miss it one bit.

Hollywood is the enabler and champion of the left-wing news propagandists, who together support the Democrats and liberals. You support boycotting CNN and others like them, why bother to support the worst of the lot?

Boy, you sold me on that movie, Ben!…there’s just one little problem:

“…For decades Sylvester Stallone has been the most anti-gun advocate in Hollywood.
Stallone has called for the repeal of the Second Amendment and the door-to-door confiscation of all handguns.
Guns & Ammo magazine stated in 2012, “Some actors and celebrities may hope and wish for gun control, but their takes aren’t as totalitarian as Stallone’s…”

My late father was a professional boxer when he was younger. And a tough guy. And a movie fan.
He said he was not impressed with the way the boxing was represented in the ‘Rocky’ franchise.
He said his favourite boxing movie – of all the great boxing movies – was “Raging Bull”…and DeNiro was impressive.
I would have liked to have had my dad’s opinion on Mark Wahlberg’s, “The Fighter”…
The problem is, DeNiro and his vocal expression of his vile lefty BS and hateful rage in real life, colours my perception now, of his many fine movies – even all the ones I have on DVD
The same with Sly Stallone…to a lesser degree, and any other ‘actor’ who expresses those irrational, delusions the left vomits, regularly – in public.

I’m going to have to think about getting a copy of – what sounds like a great movie…WTF?!
Everything is so complicated today…thanks to the SJWs and their Marxist BS!
