    • Warrior is presented on 4K UHD courtesy of Lionsgate Films with a 2160p transfer in 2.40:1. Shot on film and finished at a 2K DI, Warrior would seem to be an odd choice for a 4K UHD "upgrade" since its...

    • I typically hate sports movies. I can't get past the fact that they're all so similar. A flawed character or team of characters always have to make a big change that cleans up one fatal flaw in order to...

    • Warrior is leaps and bounds above the average sports films that are generally pumped out year after year. What keeps it from being "just another fighting movie" is the intimacy you get with each of the...
