And even for the two movies Creed and Creed 2, it's the fact that Stallone is in it that drives people to the theater to see it.

Stallone, alias Rocky Balboa, is an Italian-American boxer. He is not very famous. And his life is far from being easy. He comes from a poor neighborhood, didn't have much money to train, but did it. He even became world champion.

In the original, 1976, Philadelphia is in a period of economic misery. To make a living, Rocky works as a debt collector. In other words, he beats up people who owe money to a loan shark. But he is also a boxer. In a short time, the world heavyweight boxing championship will take place. And against all odds, Rocky is offered the chance to fight the undefeated world champion: Apollo Creed!
