Academy Award® Nominees Mark Wahlberg (The Departed), Christian Bale (The Dark Knight) and Amy Adams (Doubt) star in this “remarkable” film*. Based on a true story, two brothers, against all the odds, come together to train for a historic title bout that has the power to reunite their fractured family and give their hard-luck town what it's been waiting for: pride. Micky Ward (Wahlberg) is a struggling boxer long overshadowed by his older brother and trainer, Dicky (Bale), a local legend battling his own demons. Their explosive relationship threatens to take them both down - but the bond of blood may be their only chance for redemption. *Joe Morgenstern, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

It appears that Wahlberg will make one substantial movie after another to the end of his career without winning an academy award - while others in the cast do. Well they owe it to him - he provides the structure of the world they shine in. Eventually, the Academy will award him for his body of work, and it will be well deserved.
The Fighter is a docu-drama par excellence - emotionally chaotic, touching, gritty, and satisfying. Christian Bale buries himself so far into his character, he almost becomes a caricature - but not quite. The Greek chorus of sisters ought to be considered as one actor, and also deserves an academy award. Melissa Leo - aka: The Queen of the Night/Wahlberg's mother - also takes her role to the edge of caricature, but the Academy didn't make a mistake, she redeems her performance in spades.
Mickey Ward's fights can be seen on YouTube - watch them.
Not a date movie unless your date is Amy Adams as Charlene Fleming/Wahlberg's girlfriend. Adams physical parts add up to 'looks pretty nice in the high school annual,' which means her spirit, her intellect must be of gigantic proportions.
