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.
Fresh: The chance to play that poignant confusion is the real prize that Rourke and Tomei earn in The Wrestler.
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.
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.
This movie is amazing...Mickey Rourke gives out an oscar-worthy performance!!!!
This movie is the BEST!
