Storyline Heading
Tommy Conlon is back in the orbit of a broken family he'd given up on years ago. When he and his mother escaped his abusive father Paddy, his brother Brendan stayed behind to be close to his high school girlfriend Tess to whom he is now married. Though Paddy and Tommy have made a patchy truce in order to train together once again, communication between the brothers is nonexistent when they both make a surprise ascent up the rungs of the nationally televised Sparta tournament.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Drama - While a violent mixed martial arts film, this is also an inspirational drama on top of being a mere sports film, so fans of the main three actors will be pleased by the meaty material on top of the action. Brutal fighting and language make the film too intense for young children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good Warrior is bolstered by four strong performances, two of which are standouts.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good 'Warrior' is a fight picture that arrives with perfect logic at a climax involving not one but three key bouts, and we forgive the coincidence that provides not one protagonist but two.

USA Today Full Review
Good Warrior is a relentless, emotionally engaging family drama and underdog saga with touches of Rocky mixed with The Fighter.

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 75 moviegoers:
For once the critics are right. "Warrior" is a "Must See Movie." Most loved "Warrior" with just a very small percentage rating it as low as average. The males enjoyed it slightly more than the females.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Haunted by a tragic past, Marine Tommy Conlon (Hardy) returns home for the first time in fourteen years to enlist the help of his father (Nick Nolte) to train for Sparta, the biggest winner-takes-all event in mixed martial arts history. A former wrestling prodigy, Tommy blazes a path toward the championship while his brother, Brendan (Edgerton), an ex-fighter-turned teacher, returns to the ring in a desperate bid to save his family from financial ruin. But when Brendan's unlikely, underdog rise sets him on a collision course with the unstoppable Tommy, the two brothers must finally confront each other and the forces that pulled them apart, facing off in the most soaring, soul stirring, and unforgettable climax that must be seen to be believed.
