First of all I like this movie

But one of the complaints I had about it and one of the reasons why I don't think Adonis is as compelling as a character as Rocky was is because Rocky came from poverty and was a low life and that was one reasons why his character and his journey were so interesting and engaging. Adonis grew up in privilege and had a high paying job and because of that it doesn't really feel like too much is on the line nor does it give us as big of a reason to sympathize and connect with Adonis as it did with Rocky. Sure Adonis had it rough for the first 12 or so years of his life but he had a pretty privileged life after Creed's wife took him in which again doesn't make him very relatable. Just my take but both Rocky (1976) and Creed (2015) are films that I really enjoy, just Rocky is better.
