The film came in strong and left some big impressions on this watcher: bria celest @55mmbae Yeah, CREED 3 is IT. Stunning directorial debut from Michael B Jordan. The fights were very good. MBJ may have given one of my fave performances he’s done. Jonathan Majors plays the PERFECT antagonist. Soundtrack is also fire. I thoroughly enjoyed this and would watch again. 9/10 05:28 AM - 02 Mar 2023 Reply Retweet Favorite Warner Bros. Pictures / Via Twitter: @55mmbae 2. This fan praised the film for not including Rocky: Jonathan D Rodriguez @thejrod_87 Really enjoyed Creed III. The decision to leave Rocky out of this film, while unpopular, was the right call. You don’t tell this story without it turning into something with Rocky. This was Creed’s story. #Creed3 #CreedIII 09:41 PM - 03 Mar 2023 Reply Retweet Favorite @thejrod_87 / Via Twitter: @thejrod_87 3. While this watcher was just hit with the reality of Creed III: BLURAYANGEL 🦇 @blurayangel Realizing CREED 2 is probably the last time we ever see Rocky #Creed3 08:22 PM - 03 Mar 2023 Reply Retweet Favorite Sony Pictures Releasing / Via Twitter: @blurayangel 4. 10/10 for this fan who still doesn't want a part IV: Timmothyyy @shrewd_oprayter Creed III was SUPER good. Like 10/10 good for me but it better not have a part IV like Sylvester Stallone said it could because what possibly could they add to that movie again that they haven’t already? #Creed3 #CreedII 12:18 AM - 04 Mar 2023 Reply Retweet Favorite @shrewd_oprayter / Via Twitter: @shrewd_oprayter 5. The film ticked all of the boxes for this viewer: Jenae Ivy @justwrite115 The faves did not disappoint! @michaelb4jordan put his FOOT in his directorial debut! #Creed3 is beautifully written, shot & directed. #JonathanMajors continues to show OUT! Tessa Thompson ate as usual & Mila Davis-Kent is a ⭐️! 10/10 would recommend! Will def see again! 🔥✊🏽🙌🏾 12:17 AM - 04 Mar 2023 Reply Retweet Favorite Warner Bros.

My gawd! 12:04 AM - 04 Mar 2023 Reply Retweet Favorite @Vivienne555 / Via Twitter: @Vivienne555 7. Dame >>> Kang: Steve Denton @denton_steve #CreedIII was good. A story about Adonis without Rocky's past influence was a breath of fresh air. The summer or Jonathan Majors is in high gear, Dame was more terrifying than Kang by a mile, though. 12:47 AM - 04 Mar 2023 Reply Retweet Favorite @denton_steve / Via Twitter: @denton_steve 8. But this fan clearly missed Rocky's presence: Dan O'Brien @Falconyx85 I’m highly disappointed they couldn’t add Rocky to #Creed3 like come on’ man! 😒 11:55 PM - 03 Mar 2023 Reply Retweet Favorite @Falconyx85 / Via Twitter: @Falconyx85 9. "Jonathan MF Majors": Cee @ceedotcee #Creed3 is the best of the franchise. So many layers. So many themes. Impeccable storytelling. Visually pleasing. The boxing shots *chef kiss* Great music. And Johnathan mf Majors. Wow wow wow. That man can perform! 11:19 PM - 03 Mar 2023 Reply Retweet Favorite @ceedotcee / Via Twitter: @ceedotcee 10. It's a huge no from this viewer: Shaun Connolly @shaunconnollyy Am I the only one who thought #Creed3 was shit? Thought the fights had lazy choreography & storyline could have been thought of by a 8 year old. 08:10 PM - 03 Mar 2023 Reply Retweet Favorite @shaunconnollyy / Via Twitter: @shaunconnollyy 11. Do you also view Creed III as unnecessary but really good?! Daniel Angelini @Dangelinii #Creed3 is this year’s Top Gun Maverick - an arguably unnecessary legacy sequel that is actually really, really good and packs out cinemas 10:27 PM - 03 Mar 2023 Reply Retweet Favorite @Dangelinii / Via Twitter: @Dangelinii 12. Well, this fan thought it was missing something: SaiyanQuad92 @SaiyanQuad92 Just got out of Creed 3. It was..cool. There were enjoyable moments and the ending fight was cool. but I feel like something was missing. Can't put my finger on it though. 6.5 or 7 out of 10. The script could've been stronger from the estranged friends thing. #CreedIII #Creed3 08:33 PM - 03 Mar 2023 Reply Retweet Favorite @SaiyanQuad92 / Via Twitter: @SaiyanQuad92 13. Could we not have had more Donnie and Bianca moments? 🖤 @WrecklessLove If I have any critiques of the movie, I would say that I wish we got more Donny/Bianca moments. Also I think they could have made it about 10 minutes longer because some stuff happened too fast #Creed3 09:50 PM - 03 Mar 2023 Reply Retweet Favorite The Tyra Banks Company / Via Twitter: @WrecklessLove 14. This viewer thought Creed III was just alright, and wanted a bigger buildup to the final fight: magicMike @magicMike743 Hey yo @stephenasmith #Creed3 "it was aight" I give it a B! Ya did your thing on @FirstTake the movie 🎥🍿 could've been longer & build up the final fight a bit more! 09:25 PM - 03 Mar 2023 Reply Retweet Favorite Warner Bros.

Jordan’s directing is pretty good, especially in the fight sequences. The cast is great as always with Jonathan Majors being the standout. The screenplay just feels really half-baked.

Where's my gym membership again... The Wednesday Pull List! @WednesdayPull Creed III was as good as I expected. My only complaint is that now my fat ass has to go work out. #Creed3 08:18 PM - 03 Mar 2023 Reply Retweet Favorite Warner Bros. Pictures / Via Twitter: @WednesdayPull 17. Is eight times not a charm? Oh wait... Max Covill @mhcovill #Creed3 was pretty solid. Can’t help but think I’ve seen this story eight times before though. It heavily sticks to the winning Rocky formula, but I wonder how much gas it has left. 07:35 PM - 03 Mar 2023 Reply Retweet Favorite @mhcovill / Via Twitter: @mhcovill 18. Never thought I'd see Anuvahood and Creed III in the same sentence: ryan @RMLENG_ Couldn’t take Damian seriously in Creed III, his facial expressions gave me Tyrone from Anuvahood vibes 12:48 AM - 04 Mar 2023 Reply Retweet Favorite @RMLENG_ / Via Twitter: @RMLENG_ 19.
