The youngest son of an alcoholic former boxer returns home, where he's trained by his father for competition in a mixed martial arts tournament – a path that puts the fighter on a collision course with his estranged, older brother.

Our Take

6.9
Bryan

Do you know those movies where you just look at the poster and you go “damn this will be good”? This is absolutely not one of those, but I promise, it’s still great. Warrior is surprisingly sophisticated for its genre, awesomely executed and what about the acting you say? Hardy and Edgerton are strong together (pun intended). Warrior is a movie filled with authentic emotions designed to give you hope that something unconventional can still come out of the genre.

A surprising twist of the boxing film genre. Beautiful, emotional movie about family, love and forgiveness with a beautiful catharsistic ending. I actually watched it with my mom and she was both hooked and deeply moved by it. Strong recommendation.

I have to say I was skeptical at first, but after just finishing this movie Im not embarrassed to say that I teared up. The actors did an amazing job portraying the emotional conflict of the characters. I have to recommend this movie to anyone, as it is the mans version of the notebook
