"Who puts a synthesizer in a horror film score?!" - the poor, hopeless woman who sat in front of me in the theater.
Creed II takes what Coogler and company established in their first film and pushes it to new heights. While the formula is familiar, this film proves that there is no need to fix what isn't broken. This is a story about family and legacy, in the most epic sense, and is technically tighter than its predecessor. This franchise was revitalized in 2015 and the team took the opportunity they had to make another knockout film. They succeeded.
