Mickey Rourke made a barn-storming comeback with this portrayal of a down and out wrestler who wants back in the ring for one more shot at glory. Not a million miles from Rourke's own experience, as both an actor and a boxer, he enlivens this character with just the right amount of drama, pathos and humour. Intimately real and poignant, this film won critical acclaim, captivated audiences worldwide and won Rourke a well-deserved Oscar nom. Director Darren Aronofsky fought to have Rourke in the lead role (the studio wanted Nicolas Cage), and his choice has been more than vindicated - this is an absolute must-see.
