The Wrestler Movie Review by Filmkiller (8/5/2010)

Sweet. Jesus. Let's not do that again.

So that's about the most painful cinematic experience I've had in ten years. In the same way The Hurt Locker makes you feel tension for its length, The Wrestler injects you with the sh*tty feeling of being Randy "the Ram" Robinson (Mickey Rourke), a half-decent guy who's out of phase...

This film was just breath taking. I...

The Wrestler Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie (3/16/2009)

We are the first generation to grow up with professional wrestling as a part of the culture. In the 1980's those men were giants, larger than life personas who took to a ridiculous stage to bleed for our attention. As the years went on, we forgot about those people and the 'sport' became younger and more operatic.
