The Fighter, a review by Dragonfire


The Fighter

I don't like boxing.  I never watch it and I know nothing about any boxers.  However, despite that, I decided I wanted to see The Fighter, a movie about real boxers Micky Ward and Dickie Eklund.  The movie is focused on a specific period of their lives.  Dickie's life is a mess, with him spending most of his time high even though he is supposed to be training Micky and working on his own comeback.  The entire family has issues and there are huge problems in the way the family interacts with each other.  The family has major issues.

A lot of Micky's training is shown, as well as some of his boxing matches.  Some of the fights are more brutal and a bit difficult to watch.  The movie isn't overly violent, though it probably is too violent for some people. 

The cast is wonderful, especially Christian Bale.  He lost a lot of weight for the part.  That does make him look more like a drug addict, but he's also a bit creepy looking.  Bale this thin just doesn't look good.  He looks so different from how I'm use to seeing him.  Mark Wahlberg and Amy Adams are also really good in their parts.

I enjoyed The Fighter overall and do think it is well worth watching.

I did get a review posted on Epinions.

In the sidesplitting sequel, Whoopi is back for another hilarious adventure as Sister Mary Clarence spreads the gift of music and the power of laughter at an inner-city school.

This is really just an average filler episode. really. It does little to advance the main storyline of the season. Unfortunately I couldn't get myself to care about the characters in this one. Just a nothing special episode.
