QUICK TAKE:
Drama: The boxing heavyweight champion of the world must contend with a new opponent who just so happens to be the son of the boxer who killed the champ's father in the ring long ago.
PLOT:
Things are going well for Adonis Johnson (MICHAEL B. JORDAN). Not only has he just become the heavyweight boxing champion of the world -- thanks in part to the work of his manager, former champion Rocky Balboa (SYLVESTER STALLONE) -- but he's also become engaged to his girlfriend, Bianca (TESSA THOMPSON), a singer who's succeeding in her career despite progressive hearing loss.

Things become complicated, however, when boxing promoter Buddy Marcelle (RUSSELL HORNSBY) comes up with a sensational match. And that would be pitting Adonis against up and coming Russian boxer Viktor Drago (FLORIAN MUNTEANU) whose father, Ivan (DOLPH LUNDGREN), killed Adonis' father in the ring decades ago before losing a match to Rocky.

Not wanting to be part of history possibly repeating itself -- what with Viktor being a huge, brutish fighter -- Rocky resigns as his manager and trainer, while Adonis' adoptive mother, Mary Anne (PHYLICIA RASHAD), isn't crazy about the idea either, what with having had to raise him on her own following her husband's death in the ring.

And with Bianca now pregnant, Mary Anne doesn't want her potentially facing the same sort of single-parent future. Nonetheless, Adonis agrees to fight Viktor but must contend -- like everyone else close to him -- with what happens during and after the bout.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're fans of the first film or boxing movies in general they probably will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For sports action violence, language, and a scene of sensuality.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
