Premiere Screening by churpchurp

Thanks to churp churp! Got a pair of tickets to the screening of Warrior!

Initially, when I first watch the trailer, I was like, "what the heck is this movie? must be some cheap stupid production!".... But gosh, I was damn wrong when I watch it...
The story line was good...basically about 2 brothers who needed the money for their own personal reason decided to join in this martial art competition but the twist in it was, they are not in good terms.....ooops i better stop here...haha cause the synopsis gonna be down there! =P

Two brothers face the fight of a lifetime - and the wreckage of their broken family - within the brutal, high-stakes world of mixed martial arts. An ex-Marine haunted by a tragic past, Tommy Riordan returns to his hometown of Pittsburgh and enlists his father, a recovering alcoholic and his former coach, to train him for an MMA tournament awarding the biggest purse in the history of the sport. As Tommy blazes a violent path towards the title prize, his brother, Brendan, a former UFC fighter unable to make ends meet as a public school teacher, returns to the amateur ring to provide for his family. Even though years have passed, recriminations and past betrayals keep Brendan bitterly estranged from both Tommy and his father. But when Brendan's unlikely rise as an underdog sets him on a collision course with Tommy, the two brothers must finally confront the forces that tore them apart, all the while waging the most intense, winner-takes-all battle of their lives.
After entering Sparta, Tommy dominates the competition and defeats all his opponents, including Mad Dog in less then 15 seconds. Oppositely, Brendan also defeats two opponents but is beat up badly and his matches were long. Brendan eventually battles Koba, an undefeated Russian fighter. After Koba utterly dominates Brendan for the first two rounds, Brendan realizes that if he does not defeat Koba, he has no home. This thought helps him fight back and he gets Koba into a submission hold and Koba taps out. This makes Tommy and Brendan the finalist in Sparta. It is soon revealed that Tommy saved soldiers inside a tank from drowning, marines show up the the fight in support, as Tommy is a war hero. The two brothers then enter the with Brendan hesitant to fight his little brother.
Much to everyone's surprise, Tommy does not defeat Brendan in the first round. Predictably though, Tommy completely dominates and overwhelms Brendan for the first two rounds. At the end of round 3, Brendan has Tommy in a very painful submission hold. Tommy, not wanting to lose the battle, refuses to tap out but as a consequence, Brendan surprisingly dislocates Tommy's shoulder. Brendan notices this and tries to tell the referee but his coach tells him that he needs to win the match and that Tommy wants to fight and win, but if he is to lose, that he shouldn't lose like this. Brendan and Tommy battle once again but Tommy is fighting awfully and with one hand. Brendan tells Tommy to stop but Tommy ignores him which forces Brendan to damage Tommy even more. Their father returns and watches both his sons battle, ultimately proud of them both. Brendan tells Tommy to give up one last time but Tommy once again refuses. Brendan reluctantly kicks Tommy in the face which helps Brendan get Tommy in another submission hold. Tommy, realizing there is no reason to fight, taps out. Both brothers walk out of the ring together.

some scenes were too stretched out. But i agree on the storyline and the message the movie was trying to convey.

Kind of reminds me of the movie American History X. I love that movie
