Creed (2015) - Trailer #2 Review11:46 AM
"The former World Heavyweight Champion Rocky Balboa serves as a trainer and mentor to Adonis Johnson, the son of his late friend and former rival Apollo Creed". So the first trailer for this movie was a roaring success, can trailer 2 match it? Creed hits cinemas in the USA November 25th 2015 and in the UK February 19th 2016.
What I Like:
- You see a lot more of Tessa Thompson in this film and I think she looks like she is going to be very good
- The use of music is once again very good
- The film associates itself a lot more with the Rocky films
- There seems to be more to the film than boxing which is good
- Sylvester Stallone also seems to put on a solid performance
What I Don't Like:
- The trailer basically gives away all major plot points
- I found Michael B. Jordan very unlikeable in not only the Fantastic Four but the interviews he did for that movie - I don't know if i'll be able to route for Jordan in this type of film
- The movie is very similar to Southpaw which means it has stiff competition
- It didn't match the greatness of the first trailer for this film
- Jordan also looks very moody in this trailer
Overall, I am quite disappointed with this trailer. The first trailer created such high expectations that I just feel a little underwhelmed. It also doesn't help that I saw Fantastic Four which has put me off of Michael B. Jordan a lot. Even though the trailer still has a great use of music, it generally feels like a copycat of Southpaw's trailer - that movie gave away every major plot point too - can someone not make a trailer for a boxing movie without revealing everything?
See You Soon!
