Choppy editing makes a hash out of the fight scenes, and, by the end, a Neanderthal sensibility asserts itself: A brotherly beating makes the heart grow fonder.

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.

Las Vegas Weekly

Drawn-out and threadbare, its occasional moments of authentic family drama failing to carry the weight of the 140-minute running time.

Alas, although the acting's uniformly strong, and the film has kitchen-sink grit to spare, it errs more on the side of 1995's Rocky IV than John Avildsen's '76 original...

A sports film whose promise of a more nuanced take on familiar genre tropes ends up battered and bruised.

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.

O'Connor treats the brothers' stories like two separate movies, but both are cliched, and we don't learn enough about the rules of mixed martial arts to be drawn into the many, many bouts we see.

Grainy, hand-held cinematography can't lend authenticity to the forced emotion.

A cheap exploitation picture wrapped in miles and miles of stale would-be Oscar scenes...

... for all of its supposed realism and reflection of hard times in America, the movie plays out as complete fairy-tale nonsense. It isn't a working-class success story -- it's a working-class fantasy world.

a ludicrous mashup of the dysfunctional family of "The Fighter" and the entire Rocky series.

If another writer, someone that does not telegraph the entire story, was brought in to help the multiple hat-wearing O'Connor, there could have been some surprises in store for the viewer.

a hodge-podge of inspirational sports movie cliches mashed with pseudo-intellectual bullpucky trying to rise above its stand as a blatant advertisement for mixed martial arts

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

All the director and co-writer Gavin O'Connor does is apply old boxing-film tricks to what is, for the movies, a new sport. Then he doubles them.

Nolte's performance is masterful, marshalling together pain and regret and a slowly dawning comprehension in a single wince. But all this film has going for it besides him are its incredibly brutal fight scenes.

September 9, 2011

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.

Has to conform to the lunkhead straitjacket of the tournament format: one dufus pounding another in extreme close-up for what seems like an eternity.
