Much more 'documentary' feel to it than I was expecting. Apparently Vince McMahon (WWE boss) called up Rourke and the Director to say how much he liked it.
According to those in the know, the film is pretty true to the lives of many faded '70's and '80's once - great wrestlers who fell on hard times. Worth watching, to see how truely tragic a life "Randy 'The Ram' Robinson" leads.
My mrs said "that was shit" after the sharp ending but she's a thick cnut who's on her way down the road very soon. Ending was bang on considering the only other options were the 2 happy endings. (daughter or bird)
