The Fighter
#1
Yeah it's a good film. Not what I expected - not a Rocky remake.

Based on Micky Ward and his brother Dick Eckland (fought Sugar Ray Leonard) biographies.

End was sudden - stopped short of the 3 fights that made Micky Ward well known - his title fights against the late great Arturo Gatti. They could have shown you his 1st one at least.

The fights are nigh on exact replicas of the originals (watched some on youtube). Worth a watch if you are into boxing history etc. Performace from Christian Bale is very good and Mark Walberg is pretty good too. 8/10
