It’s the final round for Creed II on Netflix UK this December, and the final opportunity that UK subscribers have to catch the Rocky sequel spin-off in action. The removal of Creed II is just one of many excellent titles that have left Netflix UK throughout December 2020.
The Rocky franchise was no stranger to sequels. By the time Rocky Balboa arrived in 2006, it marked the sixth film of the franchise. With an aging Sylvester Stallone and rising talent in Michael B. Jordan, it was the perfect opportunity to take the story forward. Adjusting the narrative to Apollo Creed’s son, Adonis was a recipe for success and helped revitalize the love for an underdog boxing story.
In the sequel to Creed, Adonis ‘Donnie’ Creed has become a global star and is the current WBC World Heavyweight Championship. When Ivan Drago, the killer of Donnie’s father Apollo, sees the opportunity to regain glory, he enlists his so, Viktor, to take on the world champion.
