Movie Premier Encounter–Warrior

Last night I watched movie premier of “Warrior” at the Podium, I’m not a fan of UFC and Mixed Martial Arts kind of sports if you can count it as a sports, because I don't see the point of people beating each other up, inflicting what could be permanent brain damage on a complete stranger all for the sake of a monetary prize.

But this movie is all about the family, forgiveness, and determination and beating up each other for the big pot money rollup in one great movie.


The Story:

brothers facing the fight of a lifetime in Lionsgate’s WARRIOR, a moving, inspirational action drama from acclaimed director Gavin O’Connor (Miracle).

Haunted by a tragic past, Marine Tommy Conlon (Hardy) returns home for the first time in fourteen years to enlist the help of his father (Nick Nolte) to train for Sparta, the biggest winner-takes-all event in mixed martial arts history. A former wrestling prodigy, Tommy blazes a path toward the championship while his brother, Brendan (Edgerton), an ex-fighter-

turned teacher, returns to the ring in a desperate bid to save his family from financial ruin.  But when Brendan’s unlikely, underdog rise sets him on a collision course with the unstoppable Tommy, the two brothers must finally confront each other and the forces that pulled them apart, facing off in the most soaring, soul stirring, and unforgettable climax that must be seen to be believed.



A rousing ode to redemption, reconciliation and the power of the human spirit, WARRIOR is also a moving testament to the enduring bonds of family.   WARRIOR stars Tom Hardy (the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises, Inception, Black Hawk Down), Joel Edgerton (Animal Kingdom, Star Wars: Episode III), Jennifer Morrison ("House", Star Trek) and Nick Nolte (Tropic Thunder, The Thin Red Line).  The film is directed by Gavin O'Connor; screenplay by Gavin O’Connor & Anthony Tambakis & Cliff Dorman and story by Gavin O'Connor & Cliff Dorfman.

Popcorn Verdict :

(1-Lame, 2-Whatever, 3-Good, 4-Great, 5-Woot!!! Recommended)

Here’s my Take! the underdog character of Rocky and multiply it by 2x, then add an even more dysfunctional family than the one in The Fighter, add-in Mixed Martial Arts and you have the formula for rousing fight drama Warrior. It was a worth watch!!!
