The Wrestler 2008 / An action movie on struggling with failure late in life

9.3

Darren Aronofsky delivers yet another unforgettable allegory, starring Mickey Rourke as Randy “The Ram” Robinson, an aging professional wrestler long past his prime. He is struggling to retain a sense of identity, purpose and dignity. The audience can see in Rourke the story of all men, that we will one day grow old, regret mistakes that it’s too late to fix, and mourn the end of our successes.

    An excellent film! Rouke perfectly portrays the action, violence and emotions that come with his characters. Great script too, never boring. -1 people liked this review.
