Aroview: A must for wrestling fans and detractors alike, this is the hugely compelling real-life story of Brett 'The Hitman' Hart, five times WWF champion and 'good guy' stalwart of the pro-wrestling scene.
As well as going 'beyond the mat' to reveal industry protocol, Hart's story takes hold as a fallen hero, embittered and embattled with injury, internal politics, commerce, and identity crisis both as man and persona. Ultimately though, it's the 'as-it-happens' recording of a pivotal, climactic show-down that turns out to be the film's grandest slam.
4 stars (Very Good) Very good, dramatically told story. Have watched this more than once. Still not convinced that it's legit but either way it tells a good story and gives a solid insight into life at the top of pro wrestling.~Boomer
