All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

It's a superficial treatment that favours messaging and easy momentum over any taxing grappling with emotional complexities.

Top Critic

This real-life underdog sports movie, set in the world of mixed martial arts, is...riddled with clichés, but features some decent performances and well-staged fight scenes.

August 12, 2021 | Rating: C | Full Review…

As is often the case with movies like this, the brief documentary clips during the closing credits are more compelling than all the preceding drama.

It follows the fighter's life and career in rushed, broad strokes...

August 5, 2021 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

It's not just "inspired by a true story." It's inspiring.
