  • Conclusion: Christian Bale deserved the awards he won for this. Mark Walhberg was robbed as he put in an equally brilliant performance. I loved every minute of the film.

  • Conclusion: I haven't seen a better made boxing film in years! I was so suprised with how good it was as I expected Mark Wahlberg to be wooden as usual but he really does himself justice in this film. Bale is exceptional and captures Dicky Ecklunds mannerisms and even his voice with accuracy. Funny and poingant in places. If you havn't seen it, you really should.

  • Conclusion: Not the best boxing movie, that go's to 'Raging Bull' but still a great movie, i know actors can gain/loose weight for different parts but its usualy fat that makes the diffrence, 'Christian Bale' is the exception he must have worked out constantly to play 'Bruce Wayne' yet in 'The Fighter' he's actualy lost muscle mass to play a gaunt, skinny crack head!

Bale takes the Rocky road, but it falls short

Allo2JasonIsaacs, Flicks

  • Summary: A cliched, paint-by-numbers underdog boxing flick, saved from mediocrity by an excellent off-the-wall and hyped up, but overly studied, Christian Bale. A fine, understated performance by Wahlberg, but his character isn't strong enough and I wasn't invested in him for a finale that just goes through the motions. For a real knockout watch The Boxer for Day Lewis's extraordinary intensity inside and out the ring.

Bale bolsters mediocre movie

  • Summary: Whether you regard this as an excellent movie about brothers and boxing or a cliche-ridden trot through familiar "underdog makes good despite tough background" territory - THE FIGHTER is undeniably entertaining and well-made drama. It may be soft-core compared to the likes of the ferocity of the superb RAGING BULL, but this ROCKY retread has some heart - largely due to a stellar stand-out performance by Vhristian Bale, who is superb as Wahlberg's no good brother.
