Saw Warrior last night, a story about two brothers who end up fighting each other in a mixed martial arts tournament. It's almost insultingly formulaic, but the acting (especially Hardy and Nolte) is first rate. And once the final tournament begins, just try not to watch; just try. But as emotional as it is, the writers painted themselves into a corner and they didn't really have a satisfactory exit strategy, though the director and actors works very hard to make you not notice.
