Movie Review by Martin
February 17th, 2011

OK, so "The Fighter" is a great movie it has too be said. But there's not too much too say about it because its a good film for the obvious reasons that everyone is going on about already.

Flicks all about a small town boxer played by Mark Wahlberg, trained by his brother until he gets a better offer after his brother messes up once too often. The dramatics off the movie are all in Wahlbergs relationship with his family, as they feel betrayed by his promising new career path, more than being in the gritty fights which are featured themselves.

The Best thing in the film by far is Christian Bale. For so long I have waited for a film too be successful in showing just how good an actor this guy is. He's not just a grumbilly voiced Batman (which is probably his most laughable part) I've seen many parts he's played being amazing. But they always seem too get over-looked in favour off the action movies he's gone for. At last it looks like Bales up for a well deserved Oscar nomination for this and I hope he gets it.

Not so sure about fellow nominee Amy Adams though. I'm sure she's a great actress in all but her character really bugged me throughout the whole movie here and was perhaps its only downfall. What a b*tch she was in the movie.
