The ending to the movie brings me in tries. This movie was like Rocky with the sad parts.

Easily the one of the most satisfying films of 2011 as well as one of the best. Joel Edgerton, Tom Hardy, and Nick Nolte are terrific; all three give some of the best performances of 11. An emotional powerhouse that features some brilliant drama sequences that make the film one of the most touching and realistic I've seen in awhile.

I am shocked by the lack of praise this movie has received. I went into it expecting it to be good, and was delivered a masterpiece. This film was intense, amazing, core-rattling throughout. The best sports movie of all time, in my book.

A 2011 version of Rocky

Warrior is film that grips the viewer from start until finish and does not let go. Some may accuse it of being formulaic, but it is a great story that stands up on its own. It is like a modern day version of Rocky, bringing contemporary issues to the fore. Warrior contains two parallel stories that collide near the end in an epic encounter, each one both heartbreaking and inspiring.

Tommy Riordan (Tom Hardy) is a U.S. Marine who has recently returned from Iraq. He visits his father Paddy (Nick Nolte) a recovering alcoholic and born-again Christian. Disgusted by his father's past behavior and believing that he has not changed, Tommy dismisses him and begins training in MMA at a local gym. After knocking out Mad Dog (Erik Apple) in 30 seconds at the gym, he asks his father to t...

I want Tom Hardy's neck.

So, talk about going into a movie with low expectatons. I thought this would be one of the worst movies that I've ever seen. In fact, it's not. It was entertaining. Very, Very predictable, but entertaining none-the-less. Again prior to seeing this movie, I thought I'd be giving it 1 star, then afterwards, when I had all of that adrenaline running from the fights, I thought, this is at least a 3 star film, but now that I've had time to think about it, it's getting 2.5. It was good, but every sports movie cliche that you could have, it had. I mean, you knew that the brothers would fight in the end and I even guessed (as would any savvy movie watcher) who the Final Four were going to be. As for Nick Nolte, who was nominated for an Academy Award, quite honestly, I don't even know why ...

Obvious Clichés and All…it left me in tears!

Two brothers competing against each other - Check

A father torn between his two sons at odds with each other - Check

Alcoholic trying to redeem himself and win his family's respect back - Check

Underdog trying to save his house and family, dreams of winning championship prize money - Check

On the surface, Warrior is about MMA and UFC fighting, but this takes a back seat to the gritty emotion of the dysfunctional relationship between father-sons and brother-brother.
The physically commanding Tom Hardy plays Tommy- an ex- Iraqi Marine who was a champion MMA (Mixed Martial Artist), trained by his father. With the build of a bulldog, (can’t wait to see him as the villain Bane alongside Christian Bale in The Dark Knight Rises) he has the personality of a champion - brooding, confi...
