Jordan, in his directorial debut, does an incredible job. His performance is certainly among the best of his career and the boxing scenes in IMAX are fantastic. Jonathan Majors brings charisma and power to a personal story of two friends turned enemies”.
Matt Maytum di TotalFilm instead he writes: “Creed III is great! It benefits from the antagonist played by Jonathan Majors, without a doubt one of the most interesting opponents Adonis has ever faced. Michael B.

Creed 3, Michael B. Jordan presents the trailer: “In the story of Adonis I tell a piece of my story”
Finally the comment of Matt Ramos: “Creed 3 is the best installment of the trilogy. The film is brilliantly written and Jonathan Majors again steals the show in a film that is not his. You won’t know who to root for. A fantastic directorial debut for Michael B. Jordan. The movie exceeded my expectations”.
Creed III will be the first title in the Rocky saga not to feature Sylvester Stallone as the legendary boxer. The Rocky Balboa interpreter is still involved as a producer. The film divides between action and drama and deals with the topic of boxing with intimacy and describes it in all its captivating and poignant nuances.
