Build Your Own Legacy
Adonis has some big and powerful shoes to fill as he fights for glory and his family legacy. But as his mentor, Rocky Balboa, explains; it’s not Apollo’s name that he’s boxing for, it’s his own. Carrying a successful legacy can be a blessing and a curse. On one hand, it can open doors. But on the other, it can brand you and keep you in the shadow of those who came before. Creed skillfully illustrates how to carve your own legacy, both with the movie’s main character and with the story itself; which is able to easily escape the shadow of previous Rocky movies.
