CREED II an Inspirational Sports Movie #CreedII

Guest post by Boulder Mt. Man

One of our favorite sports inspirational movies is Facing the Giants. It is a great family movie. We love it because it makes you cry and laugh. It is based on a true story, which always makes for a more inspiring story. 

The reason it's such a favorite is the against all odds spirit of the movie. It is about a struggling high school football coach who is really at the end of his rope. He doesn't know what to do, he is having another losing season and in danger of losing his job. 

Part of the reason our family likes it is because a big part of the plot is this coach turning his life over to God, and how his faith becomes a big part of the comeback for his high school football team. 
Through a lot of trial and error, challenging the team to be all they can be and to grow in their own faith, they turn the season around. To the point that they play for the state championship against a team, there should be no way they can win. Again, against all odds, they end up winning the championship game and go on to be the team to beat in years to come.

In this movie there is a lot of don't give up, stand for what is right. Faith and family come first, etc. It seems as if it is similar to Creed II in many respects. Our boys are very excited to see this movie, as they know it's going to be a very inspirational sports movie with a lot happening behind the scenes of the big fights...below is a synopsis of this new, exciting movie...Sylvester Stallone still at it! Can't wait to see him in action as a coach this time, not the boxer! 

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.  

The film releases in theaters on Wednesday, November 21.  #CreedII
