Review: Mickey Rourke delivers the role of a lifetime in this film about a wrestling has-been, and I watched it with a sense of pity, sadness and heartache that can only come from a film that is so real you wonder if it isn't. An absolutely fantastic (albeit depressing) film, that definitely is worth watching, but not necessarily in the theater. Do not miss this one on DVD.

Grade: 7.5
