Clint Says: Wait until after opening weekend, but see this in theaters
I've never been a fan of pro wrestling, so I went into this movie knowing nothing about the real story. I can't be certain of which way is better to see it, knowing or not knowing, but what I can say is that I was fully entertained and completely engrossed in the story the whole time. I did talk to a couple of big-time fans after the movie, and they both loved it as well.
I was surprised that a movie about the WWE could be so full of emotion. It has moments where you will be laughing, some where you will be upset, and others where you will totally feel the pain of the characters on screen.
What makes this film so great is that it is a character-driven film, and every character has a unique voice, flaws, a purpose, and an emotional character arc. That is a very difficult task to achieve in any film, especially one that has so many players. It is quite a feat to make the characters all so compelling that the audience feels for each one and is invested in their journey. This movie does just that.
This is a wonderful film with lots of emotion, lots of actions, and a lot of laughs. It's a great date night flick.
