You have probably heard by now of the new boxing movie "Creed," starring Sylvester Stallone and Michael B. Jordan as the son of Apollo Creed, who was Rocky's opponent in "Rocky" and "Rocky II."

But, maybe the very first time you heard or saw someone mention "Creed," you thought they were referring to the popular Christian rock band of the '90s.

Creed's lead singer Scott Stapp implies that is exactly what he thought the very first time he heard about "Creed" in a segment titled "Can You Take Me to the Movies," which is a play on Creed's 1999 mega-hit "Can You Take Me Higher."

Stapp's hilarious review points out there are "no epic guitar solos played on a mountaintop" and says the band "never met Rocky Balboa." He goes on to say that the performances in the movie were "good" and praises the "high contrast lighting" and "tracking shots" that make Philly look like the city of tough love it is.

Stapp ends by saying that he plans to review "Assassin's Creed" next.
