The Wrestler

The Wrestler is an awesome movie, about an old wrestler who is trying to make a comeback after 20 years. The movie stars Mickey Rourke, and Marisa Tomei. The Wrestler follows the career and life of wrestler Randy "The Ram" Robinson. Along the way he tries to continue wrestling while many different things happen to him, like he tries to start over with his daughter, falls in love with Marisa Tomei's character Cassidy. There are many other things that happen throughout the movie, but I am not going to say anything, because I don't want to ruin the movie for the people who haven't seen it.
I really have to say that this is a great movie, for many reasons. The first reason why I honestly thought it was great, was because of the story. The story was great because you felt Randy's struggle. You did, you felt his struggle that Randy was going through to make it back to the big time even though it was going through the indies.
There are many other reason is how Randy fights the struggle to win back the hearts of the fan and the audience. Which might I add he does.
I will give this movie a 10 out of 10 on the star scale. Why? Because that's how much I enjoyed the movie!
