Warrior (2011)

Special thanks to ChurpChurp  for the screening tickets.

Synopsis (from IMDb):

An ex-Marine haunted by a tragic past, Tommy Riordan returns to his hometown of Pittsburgh and enlists his father, a recovered alcoholic and his former coach, to train him for an MMA tournament awarding the biggest purse in the history of the sport. As Tommy blazes a violent path towards the title prize, his brother, Brendan, a former MMA fighter unable to make ends meet as a public school teacher, returns to the amateur ring to provide for his family. Even though years have passed, recriminations and past betrayals keep Brendan bitterly estranged from both Tommy and his father. But when Brendan's unlikely rise as an underdog sets him on a collision course with Tommy, the two brothers must finally confront the forces that tore them apart, all the while waging the most intense, winner-takes-all battle of their lives.

At first few minutes, the movie looks kinda boring, few people walked out from the hall, while I kept telling myself to stay because Tom Hardy is so damn hawwtt.. ! It's not so boring if there's subtitle on the show, I think. 

What you will see is not completely about violence, punching, kicking, or killing. It's more about family relationship. It's kinda touching, though, and the ending is just awesome. 

Here's a trailer for your reference:

Enjoy the show :)
