The Fighter

I know it was every critics' favorite film last year and anything with Christian Bale in it is usually pretty good, but I didn't get around to seeing Mark Wahlberg's The Fighter until last night. It is an absolutely brilliant movie and you need to see it if you haven't. It's based on a true story of two half-brothers and honestly, I'm not saying any more because I didn't know anything about their story when I watched it, and I think that helped me get into it.

They say that a movie has twenty minutes to grab you- people who aren't interested in the film after that amount of time will tune it out/ leave/ decide they hate it and look for reasons to hate it the rest of the way through. The opening sequence of this drew me in, and I loved it all the way through.

If you've seen it, let me know what you thought, if not, go see it and come back. Because I can't (or don't) control the comments, there could be spoilers in there, so if you've not seen the film come back later!

I liked the movie, but I don't really consider it to be the best movie of last year.

Mark Wahlberg is a great actor I think. Did really well in this movie. Same for Bale but hes an asshole in real life and it sours the movie whenever I see him in it. But regardless, this movie is a great film.

If you liked it check out the new movie WARRIOR. Excellent story. I guarantee you will like it.

Mark Wahlberg....I don't know if he can act, he definitly gets type casted. Bale if always amazing. He is the pop version of Daniel Day Lewis.
