Interesting theme and great acting is what takes this movie above the average line. The plot is simple and very easy to follow.
At first I thought that this was going to be a great action movie, but after I've been watching for a short while, I realized how much of a drama this actually is. It is quite impressive.
Having said that, I do think it is a bit too dramatic for my taste, but that might just be me personally.
The wrestling matches and all the activity around them is quite good, and at time a bit amusing.
A lot of the music is 80'ies rock and roll. It really fits well the wrestling theme and the "back in the day/they don't make 'em that that anymore"-theme of the movie. Nicely done!
All in all a good movie a bit above average.

Very convincing story and acting. Mickey Rourke does a hell of a job, maybe it's his boxing career that makes him so convincing?
Well any way it's a Drama with a big D. Very depressing most of the time, so you really wanna be in the right mood!
7 of 10 for daring taking on that subject and for excellent acting.
