What I really liked about the movie is that it helps to humanize the fight game, too many people seem to assume that MMA is just a bunch of meatheads running around fighting each other...but really, many of the guys that fight have really interesting stories that deserve to be told. Also loved the inclusion of The Nationals "About Today", thought it just blended into the scene so well and really helped to sell the mood. Brilliant movie IMO.
I definitely agree with you about buying it though, in this day and age where media is so easily accessible it takes something that really does mesh with you for it to be a purchase. This movie is definitely a must buy for me
Well said, and I totally agree. I don't really buy too many hard copies of movies now but this was a beautiful movie. Over-the-top at times? Absolutely, but not in a cheesey, ridiculous manner.
And to anyone who says nothing unexpected happened.... I'm sure no one expected Rocky to lose in the end...
