A surprisingly involving film, “Warrior” takes the world of Mixed Martial Arts as the setting for this moving and dramatic tale of two brothers and their estranged father.

A film that could so easily have followed the clichéd pattern of so many sports melodramas (particularly the boxing genre) this one manages to add a few twists that carries it above the expected norm.
There are fine performances from Hardy and Edgerton as the brothers – one a teacher returning to fighting due to financial difficulty, the other an ex-soldier honouring a promise. The third factor is provided by Nolte, who puts in a very well measured, understated performance as their recovering alcoholic father.
What makes the story work so well is in the balance of sympathy the plot gradually builds for each character; In my opinion it is inevitably difficult to take sides, as details of each character`s past and present situations are revealed and as the pair find themselves in the same tournament culminating in their ultimate confrontation.
Aside from being a well-scripted piece, the camera-work and editing of the dynamic fight scenes - particularly the spectacle of the tournament - is dynamic and effective, making for brutal, but compelling viewing.

An emotional and rousing sports movie, well considered and compulsively entertaining.

It is difficult to see how this film could be improved upon , so five stars is a shoe in . A special mention to Nick Nolte , a much underated actor , who improves with age .
