New Rocky story ‘Creed’ balances brutality and theatricality (The Associated Press)
Sylvester Stallone knows most of Rocky Balboa’s famous fights would have been stopped by a real-life referee long before the battered and bloodied fictional heavyweight champion rallies his will to win. ”I do feel responsible, because I see the brain damage,” Stallone said in a recent interview. The ”Rocky” series continues this week with the release of ”Creed,” writer-director Ryan Coogler’s reimagining of Rocky as a reluctant trainer for his oldest rival’s son, Adonis Creed.
