The Fighter

Based on the true story of Micky Ward, that's not the reason to go see the movie. The real reason, starting with the first frame of the film Christian Bale memorizes us as Micky's older brother "Dicky". He's astonishing. And we shouldn't be surprised. He's done it in movie roles before. Unlike his counter point (cough cough Wahlberg) you never once think he's acting. You think he is Dicky.

Since it's based on a true story, either you know what happened (not that long ago) or you don't. Either way I don't think it would effect your enjoyment of the movie. But you should see it before Oscar night, and you should not be surprised when Christian Bale wins.

Did you enjoy it?

Would you see it in theaters again?

Would you buy it?

Would you rent it?

Would you watch it if you saw it was on TV?
