"Warrior" is a swiftly paced long movie, but even with a longer running time, it felt like they did skimp on some background character bits here and there, which made for some confusing viewing at times, but overall that first 2/3 of the film does set up the stakes for each brother who enter a MMA tournament from different life paths, and a father whom neither had much love for due to the father's personal demons that undermined any meaningful relationships before the father and the sons. Overall, it's easily digestible, and the MMA fights were choreographed well, and both principal actors, Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton, come off credible in the ring. I give it 3 stars, or a grade of B.

Great flick.
Many Shubs and Zuuls knew what it meant to roast in the depths of the Sloar that day I can tell you.
