A week out from the release of Creed III, some lucky audience members have had a chance to see the film and review the third installment of the franchise. Early reactions to the upcoming directorial debut for Michael B. Jordan are quite positive.

The third film in the franchise chronicles Adonis’ relationship with his family after dominating the boxing world. Thriving in both his career and personal life, Adonis is then visited by his long-time childhood friend and forming boxing prodigy Damian. Played by Jonathan Majors, Damian resurfaces after serving a long sentence in prison, wanting to prove he also deserves a shot in the ring. The former friends face off and Adonis settles the score once and for all, putting his future on the one to go against someone who has nothing to lose.

Initial reviews from critics and fans call the film a great jumping-off point for Jordan’s directorial debut. Many game him the two thumbs up for his ability to tell the story as both a director and an actor. One said called it a “great directorial debut by Michael B Jordan, coupled by amazing performances by [Tessa] Thompson and the scene stealer Jonathan Majors.” Another critic calls Jordan directorial efforts an “admirable job,” while big praises on the film’s sequences for the finale film of the Creed trilogy were heard all around.

Take a look at some of the initial reactions below.
