Warrior's 4K release hardly sets the format on fire.
At least on the aural front, Warrior is very impressive.
Apart from the PiP track, all of the extras are ported to the 4K disc, including the Commentary, Featurettes, Deleted Scene and Gag Reel.
Although hardly a commercial success, Warrior remains a powerful little gem.

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...
