If you haven’t seen “The Fighter” what the fuck are you doing with your life?
What a ride! You think Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale putting on the gloves and causing mayhem would be some sort of kitschy hollywood machismo, but I’ve never seen such emotionally gripping characters and subtle dialogue in a movie about boxing. The gritty Atlantic City story has so many emotional highs and lows, and the almost continuous oscillation between the two keeps you hooked worse than Christian Bale’s crack rocks. The score is a little roadhouse n steak at times, but it fits, and it’s hard to nit pick when you’ve got a bit of social commentary on police brutality and Amy Adams’ gorgeous ass. SEE IT WITH YO EYES FOOLS.
