I had this on my radar because of Tom Hardy; thought satisfaction is guaranteed. But this is not the case. 'Warrior' is a very simple, much predictable & clichéd movie. Nothing new; same old story: the underdog is the hero! You can make it, if you really want it etc. etc. Very disappointing & boring, too.
A fighting movie with a story, character depth, and raw emotion. Rocky-esque. Hardy and Nolte are power houses and Edgerton is as gripping and raw as I've seen him. The story is completely implausible but it doesn't seem that way when watching bc you're caught up in the performances and the well choreographed action. Absolutely loved it.
