Zac Efron deserves an Oscar nod for his performance in this movie!

Well done bio of the VonErich family. Starting out slowly with numerous wrestling scenes but an emotional storyline develops as the film progresses. Zac Efron plays the part of eldest brother very well. The supporting cast of lesser known actors also do a decent job. Not exactly a feel good movie due to the tragic history of the family but in the end shows that one can cope and move on. Being a wrestling fan will certainly make the film more interesting but anyone could watch and appreciate the story of brotherhood.

Unfortunately, Durkin’s script is so shallow that every character is reduced to a simple sketch.

The Iron Claw is as exuberant as it is mournful, and the high spirits of performance and achievement are inseparable from the price that they exact.
