Spectacular and absolutely flawless!By a customer from Beddington , 28 Sep 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]I am sure there are flaws with this movie, but for me it topped The Fighter, which in my estimation was excellent. This film has got the balance right with everything: the perfect actors were cast for the essential parts, the acting was perfection and the fights were so gripping, I felt like I was the one being thumped and I don't like fighting or MMA. But the fact that the fight scenes were so brilliantly constructed and filmed was necessary to advance the story. To me this is the best film I have seen in ages, because it REALLY reeled me and kept me fully engaged and involved in every way. I was sobbing and cheering at the same time in the end, I've NEVER done that watching any movie! And I think the secret is that the story is so riveting: the most dramatic and heart wrenching scenes happen between the three men in the movies and I found this so amazingly refreshing.The acting or the actors just could not have been better and once again Hardy proves he is an actor that has many layers to him and just keeps on surprising his viewers. To deny his talent would be absurd, cause this actor takes on a role and just creates magic and makes it his own. When you watch him as Tommy his anger is almost palpable when he gets into the cage and fights, in the last fight scene he is anger personified,and you cannot help but be moved. This movie reminded me of 'The Champ' as one of those movies that just had it all that a movie could have.I have to say I enjoyed MMA more than boxing because unlike boxing it is a full body contact sport that seems to come off in a more engaging way and of course the way it was filmed just made you feel like you were in the fight...well certainly living it. If you like stories about the underdog winning then this movie will be just up your street, BUT be prepared to be surprised, the brother you originally feel most sympathetic towards might not be the brother you end up cheering for! Don't make the mistake of not watching this moving because you'd be missing a visual masterpiece which deserves to be watched and enjoyed by as many people as possible because unlike many movies these days, this movie has heart and comes close to perfection as far as I am concerned.

Fantastic filmBy Horusfirefly (4 reviews) from Leeds , 13 Feb 2013An excellent story very well portrayed by superb actors, you really feel for the characters. A poignant story about a family torn apart, and the issues that each member faces in their own lives. The fighting seems very realistic. Similar to The Fighter, another brilliant film And if that's not enough of a reason to see it, surely the amazing Tom Hardy is! Joel Edgerton does a great job too. Very entertaining.
Awesome film!!!!!By SarahB07 (8 reviews) , 05 Feb 2013I watched this film with my boyfriend, we've both seen the fighter before (and thought it was crap) do we didn't know what we would think of warrior. But, we LOVED it!! Brilliant story and brilliant film!! Tom Hardy was bloody brilliant!! Definitely recommend this!!
Definately the best "fighter/mma" movie I've ever seen!By scubs (1 review) , 02 Feb 2013Story line, fighting, ending. All perfect! Excellent movie! Seen a lot of these sorts of films but this tops them all. Would hight reccomendm
Most worthy 5stars I've seen in a long time!!By a customer , 02 Feb 2013Incredible film!!! The first I've seen in a while that I truly don't have to think twice about rating 5* !! It's an emotional roller coaster purely for how gripping it is. I hadn't read or heard too much about it before renting it and it sat unwatched in it's envelope for a couple of weeks as I wasn't sure how much it would be my thing (although I did the same with The Fighter, so you'd think I'd know by now). I loved The Fighter, I loved this more!! Fantastic storyline, perfect casting, gripping fights without being gory and an overall incredible film. If you haven't seen it yet, you MUST!! It's one for everyone.
