Review rate : B

“..Warrior is at times almost gravely self-important. The gifted director Gavin O'Connor (Miracle) brings the film an affecting, ripped-from-the-guts spirit, even if he can't really hide how many old-movie tropes are floating around in it..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
3.5 of 4

“..Warrior has real emotional resonance, vivid, finely crafted performances and a story that will seize you from its opening moments. Action movies are never this good..”
by Bruce DeMara [Toronto Star]
3.5 of 4

“..this is in some ways a more powerful and disturbing motion picture. It offers a catharsis but there's something bittersweet about the way in which Warrior concludes..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
“..the film so audaciously piles on a series of shameless, head-shaking contrivances and is so happy to milk them for all they're worth that it starts to feel like, heaven help us, a mixed martial arts version of "The Help"..”
by Kenneth Turan [LA Times]
3 of 4

“..it's a mixed martial arts tale, and as such, it's the best MMA movie ever..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
4 of 4

“..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]
“..it is appropriately blunt, powerful and relentless, a study of male bodies in sweaty motion and masculine emotions in teary turmoil..”
by A.O. Scott [NY Times]
4 of 5

“..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]
3 of 4

“..combine the sibling tensions and hopped-up dysfunction of The Fighter with the working-class underdog heroics of Rocky, pile on big heaps of corn, and throw it all into an Ultimate Fighting Championship cage, and you have the crazily enjoyable Warrior..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
3 of 4

“..a relentless, emotionally engaging family drama and underdog saga with touches of Rocky mixed with The Fighter..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

2 STATES :

“..2 States' romantic angle is a little difficult to connect given the way it is moved along in such a hurry in order to incorporate everything, but the family side of the bargain is truly touching..”
by Paloma Sharma [rediff.com]

INTRAMURAL :

“..the film has got a stacked cast of comedic talent, it unknowingly and amusingly nods to and borrows from more traditional sports films, isn't afraid to get damn weird in service to a good joke..”
by Kate Erbland [Film School Rejects]

A DAY LATE AND A DOLLAR SHORT :

“..happily, fine acting by Anika Noni Rose, Kimberly Elise, Tichina Arnold and Mekhi Phifer, along with Goldberg and Rhames, makes it a cautionary tale worth watching..”

by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]

IN MY DREAMS :

A HAUNTED HOUSE 2 :

by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

MAKE YOUR MOVE :

“.."Make Your Move" is an underwritten mess..”
by Inkoo Kang [LA Times]

KID CANNABIS :

“..this wild story sells itself, no narration needed..”

A PROMISE :

“..awkward, passionless drama conveys neither the sensuality nor the drawn-out sense of longing required..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

FADING GIGOLO :

“..this second film is the keeper: the kind of keenly observed cultural clash that still finds room for dancing, a sultry fish-deboning (you just have to see it) and awakening..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
