Family Is Worth Fighting For

Release Date: Friday, September 9, 2011

Rating: Rated PG-13

Two brothers face the fight of a lifetime – and the wreckage of their broken family – within the brutal, high-stakes world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighting in Lionsgate’s action/drama, Warrior.

An ex-Marine haunted by a tragic past, Tommy Conlon (Hardy) returns to his hometown of Pittsburgh and enlists his father (Nick Nolte​), a recovered alcoholic and his former coach, to train him for an MMA tournament awarding the biggest purse in the history of the sport. As Tommy blazes a violent path towards the title prize, his brother, Brendan (Edgerton), a former MMA fighter unable to make ends meet as a public school teacher, returns to the amateur ring to provide for his family. Even though years have passed, recriminations and past betrayals keep Brendan bitterly estranged from both Tommy and his father.

But when Brendan’s unlikely rise as an underdog sets him on a collision course with Tommy, the two brothers must finally confront the forces that tore them apart, all the while waging the most intense, winner-takes-all battle of their lives.

One of the best sports-related dramas I've seen in a long time. A purely character driven film that uses great fight choreography and cinematography to augment it's stars' performances while not detracting from them.

"Before the first act concludes, it’s easy to figure out exactly where things are headed. That’s an inherent problem with sports movies; there’s not a lot of ways to tell them. Or perhaps, screenwriters just don’t want to tell them any other way. And who can blame them? It works. Watching a working-class underdog rise to fame and work out their personal demons is encouraging, giving viewers hope that anyone can be a champion. Even with a familiar plot, the film will likely still have you rooting for its heroes the whole way through."
