Creed II

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Creed 2 is a winner! It packs a knock-out punch in the drama category and strikes the emotions like the ringing of a bell. It's all heart for sure.

The characters are transparently written and the music is overdone. There is one scene of a caring father and daughter moment where they discuss [...]

When I sat down to watch this film I was ready to be scared. It never happened. The film reminded me of when I was younger and would babysit, and every noise I heard would totally freak me out and in watching this film it looks like you are watching someone freak herself out. I thought the film was [...]
