What do you think about Mickey Rourke? His favorite film is? Twenty years is not how it was wasted?

I don't know if I've actually ever seen Mickey Rourke in a film. I'd be interested to hear some recommendations!

It's nice to hear from you, Karizma!

He had a small role in Fade To Black.  I've seen him recently in Iron Man 2 and The Expendables.

The Wrestler is probably my favorite. I haven't seen a lot of his films. I saw one last week, Kill Shot where he played a hitman but the whole premise of the film disturbed me. I didn't find it entertaining at all.

When I looked at his credits in the IMDb, I realized he'd had small roles in a couple of pictures I'd seen, but I don't remember him in them. I meant to see Tje Wrestler when it was in theaters, but I never got around to it.

"Year of the Dragon", Michael Cimino, 1985 is surely my favourite.

But "Angel Heart", Alan Parker, 1987, with Robert De Niro, gave me a shock, strange film, disturbing one sometimes ... I only watched it twice (on screen at this time, and two years ago on tv) : still dark and "atmospheric one", very good.

At this time ( in my youth ;)), Mickey Rourke was a great actor to me, really really promising ...  what happened in his career after did not let me unforgettable impressions, even "The Wrestler" (sorry SK :))

80s "Angel Heart," "Rumble Fish," "A Prayer for the Dying" has played in movies such as Mickey Rourke, ruined his career until 2008, also difficult to understand how. I know boxing is doing during this time. For Mickey Rourke "The Wrestler" was a turning point. Because Randy "The Ram" Robinson, the character, Mickey Rourke actually the work itself. There have been wrecked in a career in 2000s and 80s is a reflection of the body.

I remember Rourke was in Get Carter.  I'm blocking it out becuase the movie was just plain horrible but for his part, he was okay.  The only other movie I recall seeing him in is Killshot, with Diane Lane.  A so-so action/thriller.

I just remembered he was in the movie Diner.  How could I forget that, because when asked who his favorite singer is, Sinatra or Tony Bennett, he answered Elvis.  O0

You just watched two movies, "Get Carter" and "Killshot" is? This is really sad. Mickey great actor. These two mediocre movie. "The Wrestler" and "Angel Heart" must-see.

Even the best actors can't save bad movies.  That's just the way it is.  Eastwood is my all-time favorite but not all of his movies are great.  He's made some horrible films but I still enjoy his best above and beyond any other actor's movies.  As for Rourke, I think he's okay but Get Carter is a bad film; I thought Killshot was okay.  I've yet to see Angel Heart.  I very much enjoyed The Wrestler and recommend it highly.  

Get Carter (2000)



Killshot (2009)
