My girlfriend took me to an advance screening of Warrior because I'm an
MMA enthusiast. She told me she did not expect much. She ended up
leaving the theater in tears.
The fighting in the movie is almost an after thought. What the movie is really about is a broken family trying to get on with their lives. You have a recently sober father trying to earn the forgiveness of his sons for destroying his family years earlier, one son trying to provide for his wife and children, and the other son trying to earn money for the family of his friend and fellow Marine who died overseas. All of it comes together seamlessly and provides for a truly gripping movie.
It's emotional without being sappy. It's funny without being goofy. It's inspirational without going over the top. It's hard to say anything bad about it. Even if you have no interest in martial arts, you will get something out of this movie.
I highly recommend this movie for men AND women, fight fans and average Joes alike.
