"The Hammer" never quite brings the pain, in the parlance of pro wrestling, leaving the film feeling heartfelt but flat.
Cleaving to the sports-as-salvation playbook with more fastidiousness than creativity, "The Hammer" offers a sincere but wearyingly formulaic portrait of triumph over adversity.
Overall this is a gentle and fascinating alternative to your typical noisy big-screen blockbuster.
I love a good biodrama. This one is about the life, and struggles, of the deaf UFC fighter Matt Hamill (The Hammer). It focuses primarily on his high school/college wrestling years. I was hoping that it would show more about the UFC experience, but that is barely touched upon. The story, though, is very well done, and I found myself really being touched by all he had to work through. I did find it funny that they changed the race of his best college fellow wrestling buddy (Jay). He is a white guy being played by a black guy....interesting concept. But still a good film....
