Randy ‘The Ram’ Robinson (Rourke) is a professional wrestler whose glory days are long gone. Still working small-time, his body says: enough. He retires, finding love (with Tomei) and making peace with his alienated daughter (Wood). But is it all too late?
An emotional smackdown. Rourke’s never been better, and the change of pace and texture suits Aronofsky perfectly. The Raging Bull of wrestling movies? Oh, go on then.
