Wow what a powerful film. Despite some cliches here and there, I fuckin loved it.

Nolte should of won the Oscar imo. Some of those scenes he shared with Hardy were absolutely heartbreaking.

And I really dug the ending. Anyone know the name of the song that was being played?

I loved the story, the characters, and the fight scenes. Tom Hardy was awesome in this movie with the mystery surrounding his character, his one-hit KOs, and the relationship we see he has with his father and brother. Joel Edgarton was also very good as the father and husband who doesn't want to foreclose on his house and move his family. It's just an all-around great, interesting, character-driven sports movie. One of my faves from last year.

And I don't remember the song you mentioned, echo bravo

The song is called "About Today" by The National. This movie was amazing. Hardy, Edgerton, and Nolte were all tops and the final fight was my favorite movie scene of 2011.

I felt it was cliched and felt pretty forced and Hollywood but still enjoyable.
