Us Rating: *** 1/2

Two working-class brothers -- a war hero (Tom Hardy) and a family man (Joel Edgerton) -- enter the Super Bowl of mixed martial arts in this gritty drama. There's a slow but powerful build to the main event, as the guys battle their opponents and their hard-luck past (their verbal blows before the tournament are searing). After all the kicking and punching, everybody wins. (Lionsgate, $30)
