The Fighter is a must see film of 2010

Updated on August 3, 2011

My favorite movie of 2010

Manthy's film review of The Fighter

I just watched 'The Fighter" and I think it is the best movie out this year.

It is based on the true life story of Irish Mickey Ward who is played by Mark Wahlberg in the film.

The reason why I love this movie is because it has the best group of actors & actresses & a great plot.

without giving away what happens in the movie I must say that Christian Bale - who plays Dicky Eklund (Micky Wards brother) in the film, has given his absolute best in this film, I mean he is so much like the real Dicky that even his real family thought he was Dickey several times during filming. Christian should be up for Best Actor from this film. I think it is his best yet and that is a huge statement considering the quality of films that he has been in.

Mark Wahlberg had a boxing gym installed in his home & trained everyday for 4 years to stay in shape for this film, and I don't think you could have gotten any actor in the world cast any better to play this part.

Then there is Amy Adams who plays Charlene Fleming Micky Wards girlfriend and future wife, who again is just absolutely perfectly cast for the film, she is a no-nonsense bartender who falls in love in the film.

I saved Melisa Leo for last she is cast as Alice Ward - Micky's mother and again she deserves a nomination for best actress for this film, it is unreal how she transformed herself into Alice in this film.

If you haven't seen The Fighter yet - check it out. you will get a master class in acting and a great uplifting film that you will be sure to love.

Some other films I think are a must see for 2010

  • Inception
  • Toy-Story 3
  • How to train your daragon
  • True Grit
  • Winters Bone
  • The social network


I need 20 people to help me reach my dream.
