On Thanksgiving day, I scraped up $6.50 to catch an early matinee for the newly released motion picture, Creed. For those who do not know what I am referring to, it stars Fruitvale Station, Wire & Friday Night Lights actor Michael B. Jordan, and Sylvester Stallone.
The storyline of Creed is as follows: A young male who aspires to follow in his absent father’s legacy of being a heavy weight boxer. Phylicia Rashad takes the role of “Ma,” a vital person involved with Michael’s character.
This story is relatable to anyone who looks to follow in their parents footsteps, or trying to make their loved ones proud. It also pulls on the heart strings of those yearning to step out of someone else’s shadow, destined to make a name for their self.
Take a look at the trailer if you have not already. AH-MAZING (amazing).
