“Warrior” Makes “The Fighter” Look Like “Rocky V” [REVIEW, PICS, VIDEO]

Okay so that might be a bit of an overstatement but it'll definitely exceed all expectations for both moviegoers and critics. In no way am I an MMA fan. Sure, I've been punched in the face more times than I care to admit, but I've never thrown and landed a punch in my life. Sad, I know. But, the beauty of a great movie (yes, I'm calling "Warrior" great) is that it can take a subject that isn't necessarily popular on a broad scope and make it relative or interesting to a general audience. You know when the chick you take as a date is clenching your hand so hard you hear bone crackle, that the movie's awesome. And that's what happened with "Warrior". Check out the top 4 things I took away from this advanced press screening on August 4th after the jump.
