On November 25, the fifth addition to the Rocky Franchise “Creed” hits theaters. With this in mind, we look back at the original that started it all Rocky. The plot of Rocky, which is about a small-time boxer with a chance to fight the heavyweight champion, Apollo Creed. Now the plot of Creed is where Adonis Johnson, son of Apollo Creed is being train by retired champ Rocky Balboa to be the next great boxer. This shows how the plot of Creed is like Rocky V, but with a little twist in that Rocky is training Adonis the son of his former rival. Now Creed has another difference than Rocky in that Adonis is walk in the footsteps of his father gives it its own story.  In the end, I think Creed is going to be a great addition to the Rocky Franchise with having Creed deal with the moral dilemmas of family, honor, and fighting.
