The Fighter (2010)

By Ahmed Al Kiremli

Movie Story

The Fighter is a drama about boxer Micky “Irish” Ward’s unlikely road to the world light welterweight title. Micky faces many troubles and struggles on his way to success. He has learned everything he knows from his brother Dicky, a boxer turned trainer, but at the same time, most of Micky’s troubles also stem from his brother’s drug and crimes problems. Micky’s mother and family also create problems for Micky’s focus in life and career success.

My Opinion

Based on a true story, the movie was generally sad and a little boring, especially at the beginning of the movie, but with time it got more interesting. Christian Bale was amazing as Dicky. You are not going to love the character because he has problems, but his performance was amazing.
The story is about the struggle for success. The end of the story is the best thing about the movie. It’s really a happy ending, and the way Dicky stands for his brother Micky is touching. I liked Amy Adams as Micky’s girlfriend. My prediction for this movie is that Christian Bale as Dicky will get the Oscar; he really deserves it for his acting performance.
