DVD Review: Warrior

Did I miss something?

Reviews for this film contain words such as "heartwarming"and "entertaining". I guess I didn't see the same film everyone else did. Shame.

 War hero Tommy (Tom Hardy) teams up with his alcoholic father, Paddy (Nick Nolte) to train for some MMA fighting, he eventually crosses paths with his Pyshics teacher and cash strapped brother, Brenden (Joel Edgerton) who is training to fight as well. They had a falling out as teens during their parent's divorce and now they must fight each other.

The plot is so recycled and filled with cliches that you can practically predict whats going to happen next. Nick Nolte turns in a fine performance, but even he can't save this film. Bring on Tom Hardy as Bane, because this film did nothing for me.

Recommended: No

Grade: C

Memorable Quote: "Why am I looking at pictures of people I don't know?" - Tommy (Tom Hardy)

  1. agreed. it's not as perfect as i everyone thinks it is. i do like nick nolte in it, but he does give a similar performance like mickey rourke in the wrestler.

    i do, however, think the scenes in the ring were quite good and emotionally driven but the rest? not so much. thank god for nick nolte. he saved the movie for me.
