Excerpt: The Fighter (biography, drama, sport) Directed by David O. Russell Starring Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, Melissa Leo and Amy Adams The Film It's not easy to make a movie about boxing. The fights have to look realistic and there's the problem of the plot. Rocky won three Oscars and tells the story of an underdog who overcomes the odds. That's the obvious feel-good storyline that will suck in most viewers.
Excerpt: What a fantastic film really is quite brilliant ! The main actors are great especially Cristian bale he plays his part brilliant. The picture quality is very very good an easy 5/5 The sound quality also is very good, overall it's a film I would recommend any film fan watch it's got a very engrossing story and I always love films that are based on real life events.
Excerpt: No doubt this is the best boxing film ever! NO doubt! Christian Bale was a godsend for his outstanding crack addict performance! Mark Wahlberg was pretty good.... How about their mama?! Wow... superb acting.... This movie was all genius.... I don't understand why Roger Ebert of Chicago Sun-Times gave this 2 1/2 stars out of 4?! Geez... He must have been smoking crack that night watching this outstanding flick!! LOL dang, just a joke, but still!
Excerpt: Amazing! Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale were amazing, and dont forget that Amy Adams was great too. The movie had me from start to finish. The video/audio was perfect. I highly recommend adding to your collection.
Excerpt: Didn't see at the theater but my wife was an extra in the crowd when they filmed here in Mass. Didn't see her though, too dark haha. Loved the movie from start to finish. The acting was really well done especially Christian Bale, he was amazing but all the actors were great. One of the best movies I've seen in a long time.

Excerpt: I enjoyed The Fighter quite a bit. I expected it to be great due to the many academy award nominations it received, as well the numerous praises for Cristian Bale's performance. In my opinion, this movie turned out to be the total package...The film has great heart, it's a great drama from start to finish, the fight scenes themselves were top notch action, a bit of humor was added in to the mix, and most importantly, it left me feeling great after the movie was over!
