Mark Wahlberg stars in Paramount Pictures' inspirational docudrama exploring the remarkable rise of Massachusetts-born lightweight title winner "Irish" Micky Ward. A determined pugilist whose career in the ring was shepherded by his loyal half-brother, Dicky (Christian Bale) -- a hard-living boxer-turned-trainer whose own career in the ring was nearly sent down for the count due to drugs and crime -- perennial underdog Irish Micky rebounded from a disheartening series of defeats to win both the WBU Intercontinental Lightweight title and the WBU Light Welterweight title thanks to a fierce combination of determination and hard work. David O. Russell directs from a script by 8 Mile's Scott Silver and Paul Attanasio (The Bourne Ultimatum).

    I haven’t seen a boxing movie this good since, “The Champ”. Sorry, “Rocky”. If you don’t like gushing blood, off the rails violence but love a movie that draws you in then “The Fighter”is for you.

  • Impossible to Watch

    By ThePolarBeast
    This movie is impossible to watch. Who in their right mind would have as their coach a crack-smoking moron? This movie isn’t believable. I want my money back.

  • Awesome acting by Christian Bale

    By Pariah2x
    The plot was predictable, but the acting was outstanding. Christian Bale transformed himself into the role, unlike any role I have seen him in. Remarkable, really.
