    Default The Fighter

    Watched this last week. I thought Christian Bale played the part very very well, Mark Wahlberg was good, but Christian stole the show.

    9/10 for this film.
    Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.

    just noticed this. christian bale was superb as dickie eklund. i have to say tho not including the gattie fights in the story didnt really bother me, i think so many only caught on to ward as a result of the first fight with gatti and then obviously II and III but from a boxing fan those fights were right at the end of his career. there was so much more to him than those fights so i think it was more important to focus on what happened before thse great fights. and a nice ending to see him win a version of a world title made for a great anding to a story.
