This brooding, character-driven mixed-martial-arts drama is Rocky squared, with a Cain-and-Abel twist: Estranged brothers, neither a professional fighter, make it into an elite MMA tournament and wind up pitted against each other. It's also a welter of sports-movie clichés awash in macho angst, but its raw emotional power will make strong men (and women) weep.
