More rave reviews for Stallone in the Rocky series:
"Stallone has had a long and varied career, inventing Rambo as well as Rocky. They are each American icons, no matter how you slice it. Rocky is obviously the beloved one, and his enduring persona has endured for 40 years. In “Creed,” Stallone plays him without any mugging or some of the tics that afflicted Rocky in the later movies. He’s unadorned, unsentimental, and fully engaging. He deserves all accolades."
