‘Creed III’ (2023) Movie Review: Excellent Fight Scenes

A film that knows how to be balanced without getting lost, and how to tell a story without neglecting the aesthetic aspect




Creed III arrives several years after its predecessor, and its directed by Michael B. Jordan, starring Jonathan Majors, Michael B. Jordan and Tessa Thompson.

Michael B. Jordan writes and directs Creed III, third and brilliant installment of the franchise, at least on a technical level. The Rocky trail continues with this updated boxing saga.

Movie Review

Very well cared for in its technical aspects, with a script that knows how to take care of the definition of the characters, make them evolve, and, as a whole, knows how to maintain an even balance between the technical aspects and telling a story.

As ever, excellent slow-motion images of fights that, thanks to an excellent high-contrast photography, make for an almost perfect film for fans of this sport.

For others, not so much.

Creed III is clearly framed around the aspects of being a part of the community of Los Angeles, and social circumstances constantly mark the evolution of the characters, who seem destined to – quite simply – fulfill their roles. This takes away its potential to be “impactful”, both as a novel story, to be surprising, and on the level of the script. These are characters who are doomed to carry out what is expected of them, characters that accept it, and that – almost without complaining nor reflecting – sometimes limit themselves to comply with stereotypes.

None of this detracts from the direction – which is excellent – by Michael B. Jordan, who also stars in the film.

Our Opinion

An excellent sequel that, however, is not going to take anyone by surprise. It knows it, it accepts it, but it shows interest in itself and takes itself seriously.

It knows how to provide the rhythm and the balance between the technical side and the story which it has come to tell us.
