Family is worth fighting for.
Haunted by a tragic past, ex-Marine Tommy Conlon (Tom Hardy) returns home for the first time in fourteen years to enlist the help of his father (Nick Nolte) to train for SPARTA, the biggest winner-takes-all event in mixed martial arts history. A former wrestling prodigy, Tommy blazes a path toward the championship while his brother, Brendan (Joel Edgerton), an ex-fighter-turned teacher, returns to the ring in a desperate bid to save his family from financial ruin.
But when Brendan's unlikely, underdog rise sets him on a collision course with the unstoppable Tommy, the two brothers must finally confront each other and the forces that pulled them apart, facing off in the most soaring, soul stirring and unforgettable climax that must be seen to be believed.
This film is not to be missed.

Fresh: Its three leads certainly deserve consideration for their artfulness in being able to infuse it with intimations of quality.-Sandra Hall, Sydney Morning Herald, October 26, 2011
Fresh: Dotted with emotional honesty and strong storytelling that you only find in truly special movies.-Erin Free, FILMINK (Australia), October 26, 2011
Rotten: Grainy, hand-held cinematography can't lend authenticity to the forced emotion.-Jim Schembri, The Age (Australia), October 25, 2011
Fresh: The film's great achievement is not in the way it manages to drop us suitably wimpy audience members right into a good ol' fashioned no-holds-barred fight, but that it can be ... touching, heartbreaking and emotionally satisfying at the same time.-Simon Miraudo, Quickflix, October 24, 2011
