Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg, Cable.
Years after Adonis Creed made a name for himself under Rocky Balboa's mentorship, the young boxer becomes the Heavyweight Champion of the World. While life is good with that victory and his marriage to Bianca, trouble comes to Philadelphia when Ivan Drago, the Russian boxer who killed Adonis' father, Apollo, arrives with his son, Viktor, to challenge Adonis. Against Rocky's advice, Adonis accepts the challenge without his mentor's participation and pays the price in a punishing bout he wins only by a technicality. Now injured and demoralized, Adonis cannot bring himself to back into the game, leaving his spirit and title in jeopardy. Together, Adonis' family and Rocky must find a way to rekindle Adonis' fighting spirit to face the future in whatever choice he makes. Meanwhile, the Drago family have its own troubles trying to regain the respect in their homeland that they lost at Rocky's hands as they wonder whether is it truly worth it.Written by

When Adonis is looking at "archival footage" of Apollo Creed's death on his tablet, it's actually unused takes/angles from Rocky IV. This footage initially showed up in one of the TV spots for the film, showing on a TV screen at the restaurant that Adonis and Bianca visit after his championship fight. In the TV spot, the footage was not yet restored, with dirt/debris still present. However, in the final film, the footage has been properly restored and color-timed. Director Steven Caple Jr. even mentioned in a Vanity Fair video that he was given access to raw footage from Rocky IV, albeit in regards to using footage from the Rocky/Drago fight. See more »
During the last fight, Bianca's hair changes. She has her in two braids, in some shots the braids are all one color in others you can see colored highlights in the braids. See more »
[to Adonis - During his fight with Viktor]
He's just a man... be more a man than him.

*A boxing movie with 10 minutes of boxing+training and 2 hours of talking and deciding things.
*Nearly a copy paste of Rocky 4 and if you thought that that fight was unrealistic, wait for this one.
*When Rocky was fighting in his movies even against a Russian I wholeheartedly wanted him to win because he came from nothing, struggled and had spirit. Adonis acts like boxing is his hobby, I just cant feel for him.
I cant say more without spoiling... But very weak overall
