Drama - Despite the title and a couple of scenes of wrestling action, this is mostly a dark drama about a has-been wrestler's life. Dark subject matter, violence, language, and sex make this one strictly for adults. Mickey Rourke and Marisa Tomei fans should be pleased.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good Whether The Wrestler wins any awards is beside the point - the fact that it's worthy of them is all that should matter to movie-goers who care about connecting with a unique and complex screen protagonist.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent I cared as deeply about Randy the Ram as any movie character I've seen this year. I cared about Mickey Rourke, too. The way this role and this film unfold, that almost amounts to the same thing.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 40 moviegoers:
The male reviews are very high! Over half rated it either "Excellent" or "Fantastic." Only a very small percentage rated it somewhat low. The female reviews aren't much lower than the male reviews which is unexpected for this type of story. Only a few ladies didn't care for it. I Highly Recommend "The Wrestler."

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Back in the late ‘80s, Randy "The Ram” Robinson (Mickey Rourke) was a headlining professional wrestler. Now, twenty years later, he ekes out a living performing for handfuls of diehard wrestling fans in high school gyms and community centers around New Jersey.

Estranged from his daughter (Evan Rachel Wood) and unable to sustain any real relationships, Randy lives for the thrill of the show and the adoration of his fans. However, a heart attack forces him into retirement. As his sense of identity starts to slip away, he begins to evaluate the state of his life -- trying to reconnect with his daughter, and striking up a blossoming romance with an exotic dancer (Marisa Tomei) who is ready to start a new life. Yet all this cannot compare to the allure of the ring and passion for his art, which threatens to pull Randy "The Ram” back into his world of wrestling.
