"Could call this one the most impressive film of -08 and also Mickey Rourke's greatest performance. The film is photographed entirely with hand-held camera and manages to be a really touching one. Ending is also near-perfect."

"Ei turhaan ole sanottu, että tämä elokuva voi kertoa kenestä tahansa meistä. Elokuvan tunnelma on niin tiivis, että sitä voisi veitsellä halkoa. Mickeyn roolisuorituksen jyvät kumpuavat hänen omasta elämästään, eikä se ole yhtään huono puoli. Raaka ja armoton kuvaus tavallisesta ihmisestä. Arofonsky on jälleen kaikinpuolin loistovedossa, toteutus on ensiluokkaisen upeaa, mutta eniten mieleenpainuvinta on Rourken suoritus Randyna. Vaikka tätä on toitotettu ja kuultu, niin "

lame , did not deserve the hype

“Mickey Rourke stars in this very dark film. as a wrestler by the name of Randy "Ram" Robinson. A profesional wrestler coming of age. the film also stars Marisa Tomei as cassidy/Pam ,Robinson's love interest, who is also a stripper who is losing the interest of her customers. and the very beautiful and talented Evan Rachel wood who plays Stephanie, Robinson's daughter who absolutley hates him. I found this film to be very slow moving and to have very little meanginful dialogue. Directed by Darren Arrpnofsky(The Foutain) The wrestler is true to it's tagline "love, pain, glory". Although this does not change my feelings toward the film. Rourke and cast do provide very good performances. Although I do not find this to be my favoite Rouke performance either( I prefer sin city in the role of ma” read more

The Wrestler

“I never thought that I would type these words: I wanted Mickey Rourke to win the Oscar. After years of slumming his quirky and strange talent in B-movies and straight-to-DVD trash, he has returned in a big way. He looks like hell, he sounds like hell, and he's lovable for being so simplistic. Yet he is handicapped emotionally, and, should he continue to wrestle, physically. It is not quite the autobiographical film that everyone claims it is, although that is there, but a complicated, moving and depressing portrait of someone who time passed by. It is not entirely a one-man show since Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood have big emotional impacts, despite very limited screen time. Wood only has two scenes, but they are both emotionally devastating for very different reasons. The first is dur” read more

"26.04. Helvetin hyvä. The Ramin rankka elämä on oikeasti melko koskettavaa katsottavaa. Tästä pitää varmasti kiittää Mickey Rourkea paljon, upea suoritus mieheltä. Pitää myös ylistää Marisa Tomeita hieman, hyvä suoritus häneltäkin (ja kiva katsella). Tappelukohtaukset mukavan rajuja ja verisiä ja soundtrack loistava. Mahtava leffa, mutta yksi juttu alkoi tämän jälkeen ärsyttää. Rourken olisi nimittäin pitänyt saada se vitun oscar (en tosin ole nähnyt Milkiä, mutta ei"

"Yksi vuoden 2008 parhaimpia elokuvia. Raapaisevan realistinen henkilökuva miehestä, jota elämä murjoo pahemmin kuin satakiloiset steroidikaapit painikehässä. Ammattivapaapainijalla Randy "Ram Jam" Robinsonilla (Mickey Rourke) ei mene yksityiselämä ihan putkeen. Köyhä asuntovaunuelämä, reistaileva terveys ja välit katkonut tytär eivät jatkuvien loukkaantumisten lisäksi paljoa helpota Randyn elämää. Kun kohtalo kolkuttelee uhkaavasti ovia, Randy aukaisee silmät elämälle, mutt"

Not just a piece of meat. A heart felt story.

“''I'm an old broken down piece of meat and I deserve to be all alone, I just don't want you to hate me.''

A drama centered on retired professional wrestler Randy "The Ram" Robinson as he makes his way through the independent circuit...

Mickey Rourke: Randy 'The Ram' Robinson

Darren Aronofsky has always been a Director whom has been close to my heart. Whether it was the film that blew my world away, the much loved The Fountain, or the cryptic puzzler Pi, or the emotionally entrancing Requiem for a Dream, whether it's any of these Darren always proves to be a man of vision. Why am I not surprised Aronofsky's latest, The Wrestler proves to be equally successful? It's because it's a firestorm of truth, a blur of sophistication and a hurricane of a man's strugg” read more

"A powerful, masterfully-realised character study, The Wrestler is a stunning comeback for director Darren Aronofsky and 2008's best picture. Mickey Rourke's performance will blow you away."
