The Fighter is an exceptional look at the early years of boxer Micky Ward’s (Mark Wahlberg) life and career as well as his relationship with his older brother Dicky (Christian Bale). The story starts with Micky at the age of 30. Micky is a semi-professional boxer on his way to becoming pro. He is managed by his mother and trained by his older brother and former boxer Dicky. Micky is frustrated with his boxing career as he is looked on as a ‘Stepping Stone’ to other boxers. Tired of not getting the respect he deserves he takes a shot a HBO televised fight on the undercard of a major fight. When he loses he is extremely embarrassed and thinks that’s it’s now time to retire. He is offered one more shot but his loose cannon brother is getting in the way.

Micky and Dicky have always been close and Dicky taught him everything he knows but now it’s time for Micky to take his shot at going pro no promoter wants Dicky around due to his cocaine addiction and his rampant nature. Now Micky must take his best shot alone but will this cause conflict between him and Dicky or will he clean up and get in his corner? (Matt Fairfield).

The Fighter is a film that I enjoyed from start to finish. The story is very good, the actors excellent, and it's one to watch more than once.

The Fighter

Excellent performances from Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale showing the journey for Micky Ward (Wahlberg) in his boxing career which appeared to be over. Great story with Micky overcoming family complications which had been hindering his chances.

The Fighter

Good film easy to watch would recomend this film.

The Fighter

The Fighter stars Mark Wahlberg as Mickey Ward, an Irish-American welterweight boxer living in Massachusetts with his family. Mickey is on the verge of making it big, but the inconsistency of his brother/trainer Dicky Eklund (Christian Bale) and his mother/manager Alice (Melissa Leo) have Mickey wondering if his situation might be better off separated from his drama-filled family. After a few lopsided defeats, Mickey decides to move away from his family and manage his own career (which is only compounded by Dicky getting arrested for drug use, stealing and attempted prostitution). Mickey eventually finds success in both professional and personal life alongside his girlfriend Charlene (Amy Adams). But when Dicky is released from prison just in time for Mickey’s big title fight, Mickey has to decide where his true loyalties lie. In its essence, The Fighter is Mickey’s story as he overcomes the family issues that have (apparently) plagued him his whole life. But upon further inspection, I would venture The Fighter is just as much about Dicky overcoming addiction as it is Mickey overcoming the odds.

Worth A Watch

The Fighter was compared to Rocky. I must say, it isn't as good as Rocky, but it's worth a watch. Mark Wahlberg plays a great part, and Christian Bale is outstanding as Micky Ward's brother!

The Fighter

Ok Film, quite fast paced
