I went to see “The Fighter” last night and really enjoyed watching this movie. Everything about the story telling felt honest and truthful in a way that only real life and real people can be. Mark Wahlberg is a wonderful actor and his performance reminded me of Matt Damon’s role in “Invictus” which I also enjoyed. But then again, I am a sucker for movies that involve athletic pursuits that give a glimpse of how hard it is to be a champion in sports and in life. The fact that this is based on a true story makes this movie all the more interesting to me.  And the onscreen performances of Christian Bale and Melissa Leo absolutely deserve the Oscar for their supporting roles, I think they stole the show. This is another must see movie in my humble O.
