I have to say that when this movie was on the air of MFC I didn't want to give a chance, didn't read the reviews, didn't care about finding out what is all about and ended treating this movie like an underdog.
Today, 1st of January 2012 I was looking forward to see "50/50", but still I am not able to get it. So I found out "Warrior" and then decided to give it a chance, I like movies about fight, and underdogs, and fight, and training, and fight. Having said that I mentioned this movie to my friend "Highspeed" who more or less said something like: Got for it.
I loved it. I love the characters, the casting was really good and despite that we could say that Nick Nolte's character is not big, his delivery, his acting make it big. The thing about Nick Nolte is that everything he does makes it worthy, you feel respect for his job in every movie because he doesn't give a poor acting, he sold the story once you see him on the screen. I love him since that movie where he was a Basketball coach (Blue Chips), he has passion on his acting and he gives you that.
The story is good and every character has a solid background on his own which makes this a solid movie, every time that any of the guys trains and deliver a punch you remember why they are doing it and the movie catch you and get you so much that you just have to love it.
In my case despite that I felt sympathy for Brendan (Joel Edgerton) I was sold from the very beginning by Tomy (Tom Hardy) because I love underdogs and guys like him who just come to do his thing on the ring and that's it, straight to the point, I came to fight and I don't care about anything else, who doesn't mean that his heart was not in the fight, it was and in a very deep way.
I like I got to see this movie in the beginning of the year, I don't care if is too old for you, but this movie will get many re-watch from me and... it is definitely and encouraging film.
