Story


Two brothers face the fight of a lifetime - and the wreckage of their broken family - within the brutal, high-stakes world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighting in Lionsgate's action/drama, "Warrior."

An ex-Marine haunted by a tragic past, Tommy Riordan returns to his hometown of Pittsburgh and enlists his father, a recovered alcoholic and his former coach, to train him for an MMA tournament awarding the biggest purse in the history of the sport. As Tommy blazes a violent path towards the title prize, his brother, Brendan, a former MMA fighter unable to make ends meet as a public school teacher, returns to the amateur ring to provide for his family. Even though years have passed, recriminations and past betrayals keep Brendan bitterly estranged from both Tommy and his father.

But when Brendan's unlikely rise as an underdog sets him on a collision course with Tommy, the two brothers must finally confront the forces that tore them apart, all the while waging the most intense, winner-takes-all battle of their lives.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..it weaves the best elements of "The Fighter," "Million Dollar Baby" and "The Wrestler" into a story so heartfelt and well-acted that any objections to what's been adapted from elsewhere seems to matter less as the movie goes on..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]
“..is one of those movies that, if you were to describe it to friends in an attempt to tell them how much you enjoyed it, you would sound ridiculous..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
“..a relentless, emotionally engaging family drama and underdog saga with touches of Rocky mixed with The Fighter..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
