Jack Bowers should do a little research, this movie is "NOT" just about a small town kid who gets a lucky chance at a top tier fighter, and beats him. It's about Micky Ward. If you never seen his fights with Arturo Gatti, I suggest watching them first, then watching this movie. It was never mentioned but anyone who knows ANYTHING about boxing knows the story. Great movie, In My Opinion.
WELL TO BEGIN WITH, I'M ACTUALLY WATCHING THE MOVIE CALLED *THE FIGHTER*'RIGHT NOW!!; SO IFN Y'ALL FOLKS DON'T MIND, LEAVE ME ALONE FIR AWHILE, SO THAT I CAN FINISH WATCHING THE MOVIE, SO I CAN GIVE YOU MY BEST AND HONEST OPINION OF THE MOVIE CALLED * THE FIGHTER * +!I just Finished watching the movie, and I think I it was just an average type movie, Nothing really special about it. A small town guy who gets the chance to go up against a big name fighter and was lucky enough to beat the Fighter.
On my top 10 favorite movies of all time list! Mark Wahlberg played the part perfectly and ☆Christian Bale's role as Dicky, trainer and crackhead, was the best actor I have ever seen☆ All the actors, directors, writers, and everyone responsible for this movie was/is awesome!
