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

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

Suddenly Thunderdome doesn't seem like such a pipe dream anymore.

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

Warrior is a superbly acted and emotional film about manhood, family and never submitting to life's beat downs.

Its three leads certainly deserve consideration for their artfulness in being able to infuse it with intimations of quality.

Dotted with emotional honesty and strong storytelling that you only find in truly special movies.

The Age (Australia)

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

The film's great achievement is not in the way it manages to drop us suitably wimpy audience members right into a good ol' fashioned no-holds-barred fight, but that it can be ... touching, heartbreaking and emotionally satisfying at the same time.

As fight films go, Warrior is as gutsy as they get, with not just a big cash prize at stake but a whole family
Louise Keller

A towering, punchy film in which redemption is the key theme ...a career-making role for Edgerton

A welcome throwback to big studio movies with heart, mind, and blood running through their veins.

There have been a lot of movies about fighting, but few have been more personal and emotional than this one about a whole family of fighters divided by a bitter past of desertion, alcoholism, regret and death.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Relies on the graininess of the indie/gritty shaky-camera style rather than on the integrity of the narrative to convince viewers the film is more artful than cornball.

Few attempts are made to explain the technicalities and nothing is left to the imagination in terms of the brute strength required at this level.

easily one of the best sports dramas in recent years

A mélange of Rocky, On the Waterfront, The Wrestler and The Fighter.
Nick Rogers
September 23, 2011
Just enough unexpectedly terrific moments of big-ticket emotion and quiet introspection to make a cliché-barraged first hour and eye-rolling plot turns feel more disappointing. Still, it boasts vivid fight choreography and a trio of top performances.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Christianity Today
September 23, 2011
Even though Christ transforms hearts, believers aren't promised new lives devoid of suffering. Such an accurate depiction of faith is rare in Hollywood and even many faith-based productions.
