The Fighter

BluRay Authority
28 January 2012
  • Excerpt: The holidays are a wonderful time for eating, spending time with friends and family and so forth. More to the point, it’s when all of the “critically-acclaimed” films get pushed our way so they can be considered for the Academy Awards.

The Fighter Review

  • Excerpt: The best sports movies are never about the sports themselves, but the characters involved in them. It worked for Hoosiers , it worked for Rocky , and it works in the modern day for The Fighter .

The Fighter

High-Def Digest
9 March 2011
  • Summary: Even though the movie is called 'The Fighter' and is about a boxer, I would submit that the film's title more aptly describes the way Micky had to struggle with his leeching, controlling mother and a band of sisters scorned.

The Digital Fix
9 February 2011
  • Excerpt: As Stallone�s Rocky did 35 years before it, The Fighter has gone in to the awards season as underdog and risen to become a significant contender. Both are tales of an aging boxer from an impoverished background suddenly given a belated opportunity to take a shot at the title, spurred on by a...

Cinema Blend
10 December 2010
  • Excerpt: No boxing movie is just about boxing, of course, given our national penchant for building up some punches and jabs into metaphors for class tension or American resilience or whatever's relevant at the moment. At least with The Fighter , his endearing and tenacious new film, David O.

AV Club
9 December 2010
  • Excerpt: With the notable exception of his exuberant performance as the unstoppable Dieter Dengler in Werner Herzog’s Rescue Dawn , Christian Bale has spent the decade since American Psycho playing roles that showcase his anger, austerity, or some combination of the two.

  • Summary: This is great stuff. Following the true story of Massachusetts’ welterweight Micky Ward’s road to glory, The Fighter is as interested in the family drama as it is the boxing. There’s no shortage of it as Micky (Mark Wahlberg) finds himself in the middle of an emotionally charged family hell-bent on...

FILMDUDE
20 January 2011
  • Excerpt: If you thought stories of the boxing hero had retired to their corner, grab a ringside seat... "The Fighter" will get you in a clinch. Oddly the fighter himself is the most conventional, and possibly the least interesting character in the ensemble.

30 July 2011
  • Excerpt: Op de uitstekende cast na verrast THE FIGHTER van regisseur David O. Russell (THREE KINGS, I HEART HUCKABEES) geen moment; niet in verhaal en niet in uitwerking. We hebben het allemaal al eerder gezien: een ambitieuze bokser uit een lage sociale klasse vecht zich, de nodige tegenslagen overwinnend,...
