I was wondering who saw this film.  I searched to see if there was already a topic but could find none. 

Personally I finally got around to see this film a week ago.  Absolutely recommend everyone to grab a copy of the DVD since it's run through theaters seems to be coming to an end.  It helped that I have always been a fan of wrestling (three seconds to pass your judgment on me... and done) my whole life, but there was something about this movie that really struck a chord with me.  Sure Mickey Rourke was great, but it was his character that he played that made the film so... believable?  I'm not sure, but I damn near teared up at the end.

Anyone else care to voice their opinion on this one?

I thought it was a great film, but not as emotional as I thought it would be. I was expecting something a bit more, but still good nonetheless.

Yeah,it's a fantastic film.

I have it pre-ordered on Blu-Ray.

Shame we won't see Rourke vs Jericho at WM25.

I'd also like to point out that Marisa Tomei was even hotter than she was over fifteen years ago in My Cousin Vinny

I thought it was fantastic. Incredible acting, terrific direction, very well-written script. And that ending... ooooh, I left the theather with goosebumps all of my spine.

Plus we get to see Marisa Tomei naked... and Mickey Rourke's ass!

Awesome movie. I'd encourage anyone with a pulse to go out and see it right now.

Oh yes, mostly certainly. I think wrestling is pathetic but I loved the movie.
