awesome music and compliments the story behind the trailer very well.

unsure why the hate on the music?

Looks good to me. The music isn't my style but fits. Seems like this should be a worthy sequel.

'Cause it sucks?

I really didn't care about the music since it was just the trailer but you have to remember who the audience is 'round these parts.

And even though I didn't care, I still will say that the music in the trailer was annoying and crappy. But I find most of hip-hop annoying and crappy.

Now get off my lawn!!!

the lyrics and beat are cool, but the tone of the voice is too shrill

Pretty accurate review of Kendrick Lamar truth be told, but you get used to the voice.

"Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family's past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what's worth fighting for, and discover that nothing's more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can't escape your history."

I didn't like the song either. Kendrick has that alien sounding voice, and the "I got/I got/I got/I got..." is really annoying and repetitive. Maybe if it would help if he had a little more bass in his voice. The lyrics make sense though with regards to Adonis Creed.
At first I thought the idea of Apollo's son fighting Ivan Drago's son was cheesy, but I'm liking the story now.

The visuals look great too, I'm looking forward to this one.

I wonder if the movie opens with Creed fighting for the title? It almost seems like Duke's son is part of his entourage there in that pic above and the other guy is holding his belt, but I'm not exactly sure. Maybe Little Duke agrees to train him after he beats his fighter for the belt.

Brigitte Nielsen will be back as Drago's wife. I didn't expect that.

Now that I see there's a time jump with Bianca and a baby and a Sly/Dolph stare down? I'm in.

Man, that quick burst of "Gonna Fly Now" at the end...I'm sold. Let's go.

looks great. I really dug Creed 1 and cringed when I heard they were making a sequel, but it almost seems like this is the story they wanted to tell all along and Creed 1 was just the means (albeit a great one) to get us here.

Creed Jr and Drago Jr are at least 6-7 weight classes apart. Also it looks like Drago passed on his use of PED's to his son lol. This looks really good though. Loved the Rocky/Drago staredown. Hard to believe in 2018 the character of Rocky Balboa could still carry so much vitality. I was weary about the first Creed because I thought Rocky Balboa finally sent off the character properly after years of the stench of Rocky V hanging around. But I was wrong because Creed was even better. So I'm pretty stoked for this.

As someone who did not like the first one, this looks to be even worse. Looks like Sly took over creative control from Ryan Coogler (Sly was actually supposed to direct this one) and turned this into another soapy melodramatic "Rocky" universe film. Yawn!

You've just described all 7 Rocky movies. The melodrama is fundamental to what these movies are.

I wasn't a huge fan of Creed, but am eager to check this out. Liked both trailers we've seen. The staredowns with Dolph are great. Jordan is pretty good in the role - and that looks to continue into the sequel.

Looks like Dolph needs a better agent if he can't even get his name mentioned in the trailers. Him coming back is a big part of the draw for long time fans,

Look closer than Rocky and Drago.
