Jordan stole our hearts as Adonis Creed, much like Sylvester Stallone did as Rocky Balboa. Now, he is back with Creed III, another masterpiece in the series. Creed III also marks Michael B. Jordan’s directorial debut has outdone himself, if the first day performance is anything to go by. Additionally, this film stands out as the first sports drama to be shot on IMAX cameras, making every action scene highly vivid and immersive, almost as if you are in the ring with them! Creed III also sees Marvel-lous Jonathan Majors as the antagonist Damian Anderson giving Adonis some major grief in the ring. What makes their duels oh so entertaining though, is anime. Yep! Michael B. Jordan is a total weeb and has used his creative liberties to pay tribute to the stunning fight scenes in anime like Dragon Ball Z and Naruto. Michael B.
