Synopsis

Mickey Rourke gives the performance of a lifetime as pro wrestler Randy "The Ram" Robinson, a former superstar now paying the price for twenty years of grueling punishment in and out of the ring. But he's about to risk everything to prove he has one more match left in him: a re-staging of his famous Madison Square Garden bout against "The Ayatollah." Darren Aronofsky directs a powerful cast in this action-packed saga of guts, glory and gritty determination that is "as irresistible as a headlock" (New York Post ).

Reviews

Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald | January 16, 2009

It's a wonderful, career-reviving performance, and you can't imagine the movie without him. Welcome back, Mickey.

Amy Biancolli Houston Chronicle | January 16, 2009

Predictable as it is, this sad, strong beast of a film keeps us pinned to the mat with the strength of its compassion and the overpowering force of its central performance.

Roger Moore Orlando Sentinel | January 14, 2009

The chance to play that poignant confusion is the real prize that Rourke and Tomei earn in The Wrestler.

Tom Maurstad Dallas Morning News | January 09, 2009

The movie presses too hard and too often, but the performances are strong enough to withstand the melodramatic impulses, and the themes of isolation and self-destructiveness are too sharply realized to be trivialized.

Lisa Kennedy Denver Post | January 09, 2009

The Wrestler has the intimacy of a fly-on-the-wall documentary. No stunt men were harmed -- or used -- in the fight sequences. But the drama makes for vibrant art.

Tom Long Detroit News | January 09, 2009

With uncommon intelligence and brutal honesty, The Wrestler examines the cost, and need, of battle.

Colin Covert Minneapolis Star Tribune | January 09, 2009

The Wrestler is strong, confident filmmaking. It shows you everything you need to know, and never whispers in your ear what you're supposed to feel about it.
