Trespass

Director Gavin O'Connor tries sprucing up the material by swapping out boxing for mixed martial arts, but it's still the same old story told the same old way. At least Real Steel had robots.

The punches always seem that much harder when you understand just why they hurt.

A straight genre picture, but the best MMA movie ever.

Tom and Brendan are enough to offer a satisfying payoff - even if minor characters are left flailing in their wake.

Warrior reveals itself to be more than just a brainless slugger - like the best boxing movies, it's able to utterly wrap you up in the moment and have you punching the air come its conclusion.

We Got This Covered

Warrior is one of the year's best films that has everything audiences are looking for in a sports movie experience. Visually exciting fight sequences are matched by an emotionally complex story with believable characters full of conviction.

Reel Film Reviews

...an instant classic that manages to surpass even the original Rocky in terms of effectiveness...

Familiar fight movie tropes are followed, but the dramatic stakes that O'Connor lends the proceedings give them uncommon involvement and an even rarer sense of suspense.

Warrior is an unbelievably effective film, not just because it's emotionally rich, but because it doesn't treat the MMA sport like a joke.

What Culture

Trumping even genre classic Rocky, Warrior packs a grand emotional wallop thanks to top-tier performances and the fact that you don't want either fighter to lose.

One cannot genuinely fault Warrior for the clichéd elements of its story, simply because reviving the cliché is the whole point.

January 20, 2012

In Gavin O'Connor's hands ... the few-holds-barred matches are certainly the main event: subtle characterization and deep back-story are not wanted on this two-fisted voyage of the Conlon family.

KWQC-TV (Iowa)

Not far removed from its true-to-life counterpart 'The Fighter,' 'Warrior' is about two men who decide to enter a mixed martial arts competition for two very different reasons.

Spirituality and Practice

A sports movie about a martial arts tournament and an intimate drama about letting go of hatred and opening the heart to the healing balm of forgiveness.

Its most rewarding moments being the well-choreographed brutal MMA fight scenes.

Screenwize

This tale of two brothers competing in a mixed martial arts contest is gritty, laboured and totally devoid of suspense or surprise, despite the best efforts of actors Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton.

Warrior makes a creditable attempt at expanding the scope of the MMA films - and whilst not always successful - the powerful performances should keep many people happy

Formulaic yes, but the best iteration of this formula in a very long time.
