The Fighter Reviews:

The storyline of Micky "Irish" Ward and his boxing career with his crack addicted brother at his side. Apparently Marky Tag was so hell bent on getting this movie made that he stayed in "shape" for years and years just in situation the movie went into production. That's dedication and passion for you, yet the boy still manages to be the low link. It's not really his fault, David O. Russell packed the movie with a lot of talent. Christian Bale plays Dicky Ecklund, Micky's crack addicted brother who says the same storyline over and over again, about him knocking out Sugar Ray Leonard. It's his claim to fame. There is a movie team following him around, he thinks it's going to be about his comeback, yet it's really about the harsh realities of crack addiction. Bale, again, submerses himself in the role. He is pure method. You can not like him as a person, or even an actor, but you can't deny his passion for the art. He is on the thin side again, with thin balding hair and brown teeth. He looks deathly ill in each scene. The boy has one of his finest roles to date and will no doubt be nominated come award season. I hope he now takes home the award. He is without a doubt, the most interesting hero in the film. Their mother is played by Melissa Leo, other performance worthy of recognition come award season. Her desire to see her children rise to fame blind her from the truth. She denies the drugs and the failures and believes she knows what's greatest for her kids. This means not letting them receive a true possibility because it would be with a true manager and she would be left behind. Family is necessary to her and she wants to hold everyone very close, even if it harms their possibility at making a name for themselves. She of course, doesn't realize this. Amy Adams is the love interest, you know there had to be one. She manages to pull Micky away from the family that is dragging him down. They don't like her for it. She has her own inspirations too, yet the storyline isn't interested in them. The main focus of the movie is with Micky's bumpy street to the championship fight. Since this is based on a real story, I can't really fault it for becoming a bit formulaic and predictable, yet it is. David O. Russell is notorious for getting mad and violent with his crew/cast. He was in a physical war with George Clooney on the set of Three Lords and anyone can go on youtube and check out the melt down he and Lily Tomlin had on the set of I Heart Huckabees. Both movies coincidentally star Tag Walhberg, so it seems he doesn't have a trouble working with the combative director. I can't deny that the boy has talent. I really love Three Lords and found I Heart Huckabees to be an ambitious project for the sheer weirdness of it all. With The Fighter, he plays to a more conventional audience. In terms of boxing films, it works. It plays on the down and out character, the poverty of his life and the sheer determination he has to create a name for himself. It's no Rocky, or as others have mentioned Raging Bull, but it is nice enough to be mentioned with them.Russell everytime has an eye for a constructive shot. Check out Three Lords colour scheme for what I mean. Here he uses TV cameras for the boxing matches. Interesting move, it feels like we are watching it at home and are not really in the ring with them. I admire directors who think outside of the box. Russell does this, no problem. He also decides to contain true footage of the characters. The movie has some home video segments throughout and during the credits we receive to meet the true Micky Ward and Dicky Eckland, which is even more reason to appreciate Bale's performance. The movie trips a bit because of the lack of emotion from Walhberg. I dig the guy and play his films, but his range isn't there yet. When given a role that he can enjoy the absurdity of, he scores. Watch The Departed for that. For a movie where the audience needs to receive behind a character, to root and cheer for them to overcome their obstacles, he falls a tiny short. Thank goodness the movie makes up for this with the performances from Bale and Leo.The Warrior details nice music, engaging performances and a predictable, yet real story. I felt attached to the characters and hoping they would create smart decisions. If a movie can receive me to care about the characters, I tell bravo. The Warrior is a champion in my books.


In many ways, "The Fighter" is the movie of 2011. A family drama with a pugilistic background. The punches, physical and emotional in and out of the ring took me fully by surprise. What didn't surprise me was Tag Wahlberg's signature all over the place. Allow me explain: Many years ago I was at a lecture by director Martin Donovan when during the Q&A somebody made fun of the fact that Calvin Klein underwear model Marky Tag had played a part (his first acting role) in Donovan's made for TV "The Substitute" Donovan with elegance, wit and firmness destroyed the guy asking the question, describing Wahlberg's strengths and ended up telling "Mark Wahlberg will be one of the top actors around and he will probably be running Hollywood within a decade" I had Donovan's words buzzing in my ears when I sat speechless watching "Boogie Nights". Wahlberg also produced "Entourage" and the startling "In Treatment". He actually produced "The Fighter" and his performance, interior and powerful, dominates the movie allowing another members of the cast, to shine in truly showy roles, Christian Bale for instance - really good. Melissa Leo is a stand out as the mother/manager. Superb. So I won't be surprised to see Tag Wahlberg receiving the top honors at the next Academy Awards, as an actor and producer. He certainly deserves it. Bravo!


Does David O. Russell's 'The Fighter' follow the formula of underdog surpassing all obstacles and winning in the end (as is the situation with this genre)? The respond is yes but 'The Fighter' still manages to maintain a special quality. First of all, the four principle characters: Micky, Dicky, Charlene and Alice are unlike anyone one has seen in this type of film.They are wonderfully defined and the actors who portray them are cast vs kind and turn in their finest performance. Both Melissa Leo and Amy Adams are like you've never seen them before and they appear very natural on screen. Tag Wahlberg is superly restrained and Christian Bale does one of his greatest works of his whole career. They are supported by a host of impressive actors.In addition to the marvelous performances, the makeup department has done a remarkable job, especially by making Leo look old enough to enjoy Bale and Wahlberg's mother. Bale now does look years older than Wahlberg (when in reality he's a year younger) and that just adds more to the authenticity.From the opening sequence, I was under the impression that 'The Fighter' was going to be a documentary-type film but O. Russell tricks and surprises the audience with that. His execution is subtle unlike the loud approach which another directors commonly follow.For me 'The Fighter', is more about the human connection than the sports itself. Boxing is clearly a metaphor as is the game which has multiple meanings. Even though he's been constantly allow down by his family, Micky chose to give them a second possibility and have them by his side. Even though Charlene disapproves Alice and Dicky's involvement in Micky's career, Dicky attempts to persuade her because he knows that Micky won't stand a possibility without her by his side. Even though Alice and Charlene don't see eye to eye, there's a silent acceptance between them as they know that Micky needs them both.I am really beginning to have more respect for Tag Wahlberg for producing gems like this (in addition to some nice TV-series like 'In Treatment', 'Boardwalk Empire' and 'Entourage') and his growth as an actor is obviously apparent (he just needs to avoid tripe like 'The Happening' at all costs).'The Fighter' is a champion on different levels.
