At a time when the physical toll of punishing sports is being reevaluated in film, it's difficult for me to get much enjoyment out of the theatrical machismo and unsettling masochism on display here, no matter how "staged" it may be.

It aims to do for wrestling what the "Magic Mike" movies did for male stripping. But imagine a much slacker "Magic Mike," without the fun or the social commentary.

Their enthusiasm for the sport and its traditions is contagious, spanning the generations.

Our dynamic duo [of directors] should have devoted a little more time to the origins and cinematic legacy of the unique pop-culture phenomenon.

Does a good job of showing these athletes at work and play (or in the gym, where they seem to spend most of their time) but fails at providing cultural or historical context for their actions.
