Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Predictable as it is, this sad, strong beast of a film keeps us pinned to the mat with the strength of its compassion and the overpowering force of its central performance. – Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The chance to play that poignant confusion is the real prize that Rourke and Tomei earn in The Wrestler. – Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The movie presses too hard and too often, but the performances are strong enough to withstand the melodramatic impulses, and the themes of isolation and self-destructiveness are too sharply realized to be trivialized. – Tom Maurstad, Dallas Morning News, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: As the film points out, wrestling may be fixed, but it certainly ain't fake. This may be a film, but it certainly ain't fake either. – Simon Miraudo, Quickflix, Nov 2, 2014
