  • Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Brawler

    In festivals a month before Warrior went wide, the similar Brawler is the indie-film of the two by a sometimes-hit, other-times-miss director. It's also the one that is told with kineticism, merging the testosterone of its bouts with pure drama-- even at nearly an hour shorter-- stronger than Warrior's melodrama to feel somewhere between Mean Streets and Bellflower. And the final fight is filmed and edited amazingly!
