Creed Was A Transformation For Michael B. Jordan


Michael B. Jordan

The actor ate nothing but grilled chicken, brown rice and steamed broccoli while working out six days a week. "It was brutal!" Michael B. Jordan says. "Half the time you're eating you're not even hungry. You don't even want to eat, you just know you have to put food in your body just to keep going. And you're pretty antisocial because that's your life. Your alarm goes off and you're shoving food in your face and then you have to hit the gym." But even as he transformed his physique and performed all of his fight scenes himself, he keeps things in perspective. "I'm an actor, I am not a boxer," he says. "Not at all! It was very humbling to get in the ring with a real boxer. We had all professional fighters in our film, and I believe that helped me a lot, because they were quick to point out anything that was inauthentic. The way we approached it was that every punch was a line. Every fight was its own scene."

The film reunited Jordan with his Fruitvale Station director Ryan Coogler, who are already planning to work together again. "I really value the actor-director relationship," Jordan explains, "and we have a shorthand, a way of communicating on the set that makes things very comfortable. We push each other to be better." Of course, Creed brought additional pressures as the seventh film in the Rocky saga. But Jordan said that having Sylvester Stallone on the set as a costar made a huge difference. "Sly assured me that I didn't have to worry about competing with anything," Jordan says. "He'd say, 'You're Creed, and I'm here to support you.' When you have the man himself reminding you of that day in and day out, there is no pressure. The guy is incredible! He's been doing this for over 40 years, and he's really a solid, respectable guy."

Having lost his wife years earlier, Rocky lives in his hometown of Philadelphia with very little company and when Adonis Johnson (the son of one time foe and subsequent friend Apollo Creed) turns up on his door step asking to be trained, Rocky is incredibly reluctant to accept.

Fantastic Four Review

Good

Until the special effects take over in the final act, this is an unusually gritty, grounded superhero thriller, with characters who are so believable that the wacky science almost seems to make sense. This is Marvel's very first franchise, and the filmmakers are unable to resist the pressure to indulge in an overblown finale, and the digital mayhem they give into is oddly unexciting. So as an origin story, this film is more involving than most, but the superhero action itself feels rather limp.

It opens as an exploration of the school friendship between the misunderstood genius Reed (Miles Teller) and junkyard bully Ben (Jamie Bell), whose teleportation science experiment gets them in trouble. But Dr Storm (Reg R. Cathey) sees that their work solves a problem he has encountered in his own experiments, so he brings Reed to New York to join his well-funded, high-tech team. Working with Victor (Toby Kebbell) and Storm's children Sue and Johnny (Kate Mara and Michael B. Jordan), Reed builds a full-size teleporter that succeeds in crossing over to another dimension. And Ben joins the crew for an illicit first voyage that goes spectacularly wrong, leaving Victor on the other side, while Reed, Ben, Sue and Johnny emerge with superpowers caused by altered DNA. The big boss (Tim Blake Nelson) immediately starts training them for military action, but Reed remains determined to make things right.

A strong cast helps all of this play out with remarkable introspection, letting each character develop an organic back-story that brings them together as an uneasy team. The inter-relationships are complex and engaging, veering from rivalry to camaraderie. Teller anchors the film with a layered performance as a smart, troubled guy who struggles to maintain friendships as he focusses on his work. Mara and Johnson add some feisty attitude, but it's Bell and Kebbell who provide the spark of personality that makes this crew so engaging. Then both of them become animated characters (Bell as The Thing and Kebbell as Dr Doom) without even a hint of the actors visible underneath. And the movie never quite recovers its momentum.

Miles Teller first gained our attention as hedonistic ladies man Sutter in the 2013 rom-com 'The Spectacular Now', before going on to another comedy love story 'That Awkward Moment' earlier this year. Now, Miles Teller is exploring a range of projects over the coming months.
