The Fighter: Movie Review

Over the Christmas break I was able to see The Fighter which I was dying to see.  Full disclosure, I’m a huge fan of boxing movies.  I can watch the Rocky training clip over and over and do about 10 push-ups and say “oh yeah eye of the tiger, oh yeah” about a hundred (OK one or two) times a day.  So when I saw the trailer for The Fighter I was really excited to see it.  I won’t give anything away in this review and all I can say is if you like boxing or motivational movies, you’ll like The Fighter.  Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale do an amazing job playing Micky and Dicky Ward (the now even more famous boxing brothers from Boston).  I give the movie a solid 8 out of 10.
