DVD Release: Warrior

December 27, 2011

Last Tuesday, Alliance Films’ released the sports drama Warrior on DVD.  We reviewed the film when it opened on September 9th, and our overall consensus was:

With strong leading performances from Joel Edgerton and Tom Hardy playing estranged brothers, as well as excellent supporting work from Nick Nolte as their father, Gavin O’Connor’s Warrior is a moving sports drama that builds to a gripping final fight that is as rousing as it is inspirational.  ***1/4 (Out of 4)

The DVD includes the following special features:

• Feature audio commentary with filmmakers and actor Joel Edgerton

Redemption: Bringing Warrior to Life documentary

The Diner: Deleted Scene (with optional commentary)

Cheap Shots: gag reel

• Selected Scene on Camera Commentary: With Filmmakers and Nick Nolte

Brother vs. Brother: Anatomy of the Fight

Philosophy in Combat: Mixed Martial Arts Strategy

Simply Believe: A Tribute to Charles “Mask” Lewis, Jr.

Warrior is 140 minutes, and is rated 14A.

    Hi everyone. We just watched this movie pay for view and loved it. William saw it at the theatre and said we needed to see it. I love these movies that let you root for the underdog and I thought the story was great as well. The action and fighting was very real and exciting and I thought Nick Nolte was great as the down and out father. Loved the new version of ‘Beethoven’s Fifth’ and the song sung during the brothers fight scene by the group “The National”. The Von Zuben household gives it 2 thumbs up!!! or in One Movie 5 Views terms 4 stars!!!

      Glad you finally got to see it and enjoyed it! We also liked the use of music within the film – the whole thing was very well done.

      Thanks for commenting!
