I'm quite confident saying this is one of the greatest fighting/sports film I've ever seen. Though I have to admit I really have a thing about stories about brother love and brothers that have to fight each other.
I found amazing how Gavin O'Connor kept the pulse and the tension on a 140 minutes film where you knew what was going to happen since the first minute.
Tom Hardy, Nick Nolte and Joel Edgerton make simply an outstanding acting recital…
I thought I was going to see a modern-war movie following the path of The Hurt Locker, but instead I got some kind of boring political thriller where a soldier just do and go wherever he wants.
All the military aspects of the film are just wiped out, to just let some chases and helicopters randomly inserted to provide some "action". This could have been understandable if it was for the sake of the plot and to make it less…
