Family is worth fighting for.
Haunted by a tragic past, ex-Marine Tommy Conlon (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 (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.
Hanté par son passé tragique, l’ancien marine Tommy Conlon (Hardy) retourne chez lui pour la première fois en 14 ans afin de solliciter les services d’entraîneur de son père (Nick Nolte), en vue du plus grand tournoi d’arts martiaux mixtes jamais vu. Ex-lutteur prodige, Tommy franchit aisément les obstacles sur la route menant au championnat, alors que son frère Brendan (Edgerton), un ancien combattant devenu enseignant, remonte désespérément sur le ring afin d’épargner sa famille de la faillite. Mais lorsque l’ascension spectaculaire et inattendue de Brendan le mène à confronter l’imparable Tommy, les deux frères devront s’affronter et faire face aux forces qui les ont séparés lors d’un duel inoubliable où l’intensité et l’émotion vous tiendront en haleine jusqu’à son dénouement incroyable.

“I just love everything that Tom Hardy” does, an if you ever want to see a gem of his,
check out “Bronson” true story, that’s acting in it’s raw form, if ever, but this huge family,
I’m putting it mildly folks, drama of two brothers an their father who’ve lost contact with each
other is nothing more than heart wrenching to watch, never have i seen in any movie a father
“Nick Nolte” that was insulted So Bad, it was almost hard to watch, Nolte has been around so long,
like back in the day, of “48 Hours” an two much to mention off hand,
it was mention in the features about his own family, I guess going to that dark place was hard for him,

What An Outstanding Movie.
There are two ways to view this film, you can be a cynical critic or you can just switch your brain off and enjoy the ride. Critically, there's not much to this film. The plot, such as it is, is obvious & paper-thin, the characterisations are monolithic and the emotional manipulation is as formulaic as the script. However, I don't think this movie had any aspirations for critical acclaim; it is a simple tale of a broken family rediscovering its bonds in the brutal primordial violence of MMA cage fighting. The fight scenes are clearly the entire raison-d'être for the film and are incredibly well realised - you can't help but get washed away on waves of adrenalin & the testosterone is almost palpable. The non-fighting bits just about hold the film together, despite Nick Nolte's persistent mumbling, and the whole movie does exactly what it set out to do. It's not challenging or thought-provoking but it is hugely entertaining in an obvious sort of way. 7/10 is a fair score; it's not really a four star film but it deserves better than three.
This isn't just another paint by numbers sports film Hollywood releases every year or two. The film flirts with those very cliches throughout, admittedly. But the filmmakers are too committed world their film inhabits, and the performances are too commanding for it that. The film takes as much care with the dynamics of the relationships as it does with the training and physicality of the fight sequences.
The only reasons I'm not giving it a higher rating are the over use of shaky-cam in a few sequences. And an ending that is a bit too pat. Not a cop-out necessarily, but a bit of a letdown.
