The Wrestler Review

the_wrestler_movie_poster_1I used to be a huge wrestling fan so I was pretty excited to see this.  Hmm… well I was a little dissapointed.  The movie was good overall, but with all the oscar hype I expected quite a bit more.  Mickey Rourke was awsome.  He deserved every award he won, and the story was good, just not great.  The realism was outstanding, you kind of felt like you were watching a documentary from time to time.  Living the life of a Pro Wrestler is got to be difficult, especially the life of a washed up one.  Mickey did a wonderful job of portraying this.  The movie dragged a little, but well worth watching.  The artsy movie critics are in love with this film.  The people’s movie critic enjoyed it, but it didn’t blow me away like I thought it would

SCORE- 6 out of 10
