About Apollo . . . (Spoilers!!!!)
OK, I really liked the movie.
I just hated the fact that they made Apollo "unfaithful" to his wife.
Adonis could have been the youngest child of the Creed family that ran away and was presumed dead. He decided to turn his life around and fall in Fathers footsteps. He starts beating other boxes in the rings with his strategy fitness and charm.
What made Apollo such a great character was his intelligence, charm, sportsmanship and his care for his friends. Obviously he had a an ego check in Rocky 2. However, in Rocky 3 Apollo proved to really be a good guy. Adrian also really grew to love Apollo as she said in Rocky 4. "I care about both of you."
