The Warrior – Trailer

Starring Tom Hardy, the Warrior’s release seems ill-timed. After the critical success of The Fighter last year, any similar genre-led film – competitive fighting anchored by an emotional drama – will invariably draw comparisons.

Tom Hardy is consistently excellent, but I’m not convinced that even his considerable talents can be enough to ensure Warrior not only avoids a leaning towards mawkishness, which the trailer appears to exemplify, but to also outshine its successful predecessor.
