Day 60

Starring: Tom Hardy, Nick Nolte
Genre: Action, Drama, Sports
Year: 2011
Format: Shaw Video On Demand

Plot: Two brothers, one a high school teacher the other a former solider, both start to train for a UFC style event without telling the other. After both beating all the odds, they end up having to fight each other in the finals.

This brings new meaning to the term sibling rivalry.
I have to admit that at first, I wanted to see this film because of two reasons, Tom Hardy and Kurt Angle.

And I have to say, Tom Hardy, who played the young clone Shinzon in the 2002 Star Trek Nemesis, is amazing and almost not recognizable in this role compared to ten years ago.  He seems to have an ability to capture the loneliness and self-centered neediness of the emotionally broken characters he has played with scary perfection.

What do I think I learned from this film?
You have to be able to forgive yourself before you can achieve your ultimate goals.
