Joe Hackman's rating of the film Creed

Creed surprised me. I had preconceived notions about the movie based on the dailies I saw, but the committed performances and impeccable shot design pulled this movie together to become something bigger, something beautiful. SPOILER: The symbolically loaded final scene with Rocky struggling up the steps he used to endlessly run in training montages is one of the more memorable pieces of cinema this year. 9/10
