What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Nils van der Linden The Wrestler is something you just can't fake: a universal story, truthfully told.
Niel Bekker It is sobering as a story, but even more so as a meditation on one of our greatest fears: life without options.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert The Wrestler is one of the year's best films.
Jason Anderson The results are a movie and a performance that are uncommonly lean, visceral and powerful. No wonder The Wrestler is entering awards season on such a triumphant note.
C. Fuchs Working on a number of levels and featuring a terrific if heartbreaking performance by Rourke in the lead, The Wrestler is one of the best films of 2008.
Tomatometer Mickey Rourke gives a performance for the ages in The Wrestler, a richly affecting, heart-wrenching yet ultimately rewarding drama.
