Sujeiry Recommends: Warrior

Growing up, I witnessed numerous nights of arguing between Mami and Papi. Broken dishes compliments of her despair and sorrow. Drunken rants and blood shot eyes via my father. Anger and fear and confusion in the air. The potential for abuse at a pin drop, which is why I loathe violence and can relate to anyone who has witnessed abuse.

I no longer think of those moments, but was reminded of what alcoholism and terror can do to individuals and family while watching Warrior. I was lucky to receive a free ticket to the pre-screening from Teresa Garza of Checa La Movie, and sat with a fist by my mouth throughout the 2 hour and 19 minute flick, petrified yet excited. Tommy, a broken and emotionally bankrupt soldier who’d gone AWOL, stole my heart when his fist broke the face of an ultimate fighter.

Ironic, since I usually run away from any sign of violence.

But there was something about Tommy, played by actor Tom Hardy, that melted my cold, rigid heart. His anger made him sexier. His use of little words mysterious. His tenacity and determination to win 5 million dollars for a dead soldiers wife, even if it meant beating the pulp out of his estranged brother, endearing. Blame it on my Save a Ho Complex but I was into Tommy, rage and all.

The end of the movie only made my love for Tommy that much deeper. I wont give away the ending but, as Checa said, bring your Kleenex because la cinta es muy emotiva! Translation: whether man or woman, you will cry like a baby. Just ask the young fellow sitting beside myself and my friends. I saw him brush away tears, wiping his seeing glasses to clear up the fog.

So shall you go see Warrior? A big fat YES! Whether you’ve witnessed violence or not, it is a powerful flick that will evoke a multitude of emotions. A must see in the 1st Lady of Love’s book, if only for the love of Tommy.
