The Fighter

Incredible, but true story of the way the title of world champion boxer Micky ward, nicknamed "Irish." The ascent of the ward was like climbing the legendary rocky. The guy from the people, between fights, he worked on road works.

Help brother, love the waitress Charlene, caring mother and inflexible will to win allowed ward to ascend the pedestal of the world...

Oh, don't I waited Oscar-winning film! Most of all, he reminded me of the movies "about life", what a lot was shot in a Soviet era. Often the success or failure of these paintings was dependent on the participation or non-participation in them good actors, because stories life can invent an infinite set, and that's true of them to play can not every composition. Separately I want to note that these films by their very nature, difficult to perception of people of others with different culture, different nationality, a different worldview. Even if you are some universal values.

So, the movie "the Fighter". Typical American story of the typical American characters. Especially revealing here Mama — a feminist with an iron character, which, it seems, in life more touching than the fate of her children, and money, thanks to them earn. The main character — waterboy, the unfortunate boxer whose career is part-time family business, nursing, even all its many aunts. These sponger current position more than happy, well, unless victories Miki I would like a little more, but so will do. Parallel to the story of the protagonist is the story of his brother, in the past, also a boxer, living in the present with memories of past successes, to burn the life of drugs, women and endless parties in the company of the Goonies. After another heavy defeat Mickey strikes up a relationship with a girl who helps him out of the vicious family circle, "stromlinie Springboard". And already doing Mickey go to the mountain, his brother is taken for um...

Where is the moral, what is the meaning of the movie? — Yes no in it. Just another life story. At first look interesting, but to the middle of the movie I start to get bored. And the point here is, I not seem to the actors. Mark Wahlberg is a good fit in his role of a simple American man, was a compelling Mama's boy. However, with an emotionless face, his hero ought to do less psychological scenes. If not periodically switching the attention of the Director to figure it much more of a live "big" brother to the word seeming younger than Miki, on the movie could feel free to put the cross. Here you begin to understand why the critics singled out the work of Christian Bale, although I still think that the salvation of the middle of the film without Wahlberg would not held — their strength is in contrast. The characters are family members Miki played on the appropriate level of claims from me principle.

Finally I want, how many, to kick the "soldiers" for weak scene on the ring. Although all hands "rocky" from him went to. maybe it and best for instead of any action we got a mediocre drama, American history about life can be without any special effort to watch until the end.

Always loved movies about box, Hollywood really good sports drama. In an example can highlight the paintings that have left a big mark in Hollywood: raging Bull and rocky. The fighter had to come up with something to interest the viewer, after all, films about box recorded a large number, but have to give credit to the picture is not have turned out mediocre, not has turned formulaic, everything looks on one breath and very tense feel the whole movie. With boxer Mickey ward I was not familiar with when I liked to watch fights heavyweights, and the average weight I once especially loved to watch here and wonder, after viewing this film want to know more about this amazing boxer, who went to and did everything to achieve to aspire to.

The film is dedicated to Boxing very little time to my opinion is a big plus of this painting and a big plus to the Director, probably why it is listed in movie candidates for an Oscar.

Mickey is very fair and honest man, and the boxer, perfectly illustrates its complex relationship with the mother, with a brother that for him something like an idol, perfectly illustrates how going through their failures myself Mick is important to his family, girlfriend and its roots are not happen to reviews I posted by:" don't forget your roots, there are things on the order above".

In the final battle you can hear how Mickey call to fight for America and I think a significant element, with all the negativity to America they have a lot to learn is it will win of course patriotism.

The film is very strong and deep if you thought this is a typical Boxing movie with a massacre, you are deeply mistaken, this is a movie with meaning that need to go to your goal, you can make mistakes, can be blunt, stupid, but the main thing to do though not always correct, but the main thing to do is not give up.

And of course the film as mentioned earlier raises the issue of the family, are also affected by the theme of drugs that person becomes after drinking regular doses, it becomes an animal, of course it is not Requiem for a dream, and not the Basketball diaries, but theme of stuff I believe was well exposed.

Cinema I think more for older people, not all young people and the girls will understand this film and its psychology.

Mark Wahlberg is one of my favorite actors, but I used it was associated only with frivolous militants and fantastic, but the last time mark proved that can play different roles, unexpectedly had a part where he played in the Comedy Cops in a Deep Reserve, not expect it is so ridiculous games, and now the role of a real boxer I think he found, especially able to play as not so much a boxer, how many a son and brother who is in need of love care and to keep the family together and understand it, like seemed Mickey is still a baby who needs his family heat and tenderness.

Christian bale is one of the few modern actors who actually shocking their roles, but I shocked it the roles are so different that just wondering how him all so possible, the role of Batman, then the role of John Connor, and he played the Prestige, but he is there is room to grow the role of Dickie I think was brilliant, especially how he portrayed a drug addict, look at him as it seems we really are a drug addict, Christian lost a lot of weight especially for the role they say art requires sacrifice, sight of course it was very powerful, but wasn't just how he portrayed a drug addict, he the whole movie was really the best in all due respect to Mark Christian was clearly the best, its inspired play on the film made the tape, just candy.

As for the Boxing, then they were set very realistic, I myself began to seem like watching a real Boxing match, but not a movie.

Really heavily a movie that deserves many awards, and not movie once, I want to experience again in the atmosphere of this film, look again at the Mickey family on the stunning fights.

The movie left a very ambiguous impression. Describe all of order, but start with that like.

First of all, a terrific game bale, who played dick "Dickie" Eklund, a boxer, a well-known fact that he allegedly sent to down the great and terrible, the Sugar ray Leonard (Sugar Ray Leonard) to battle the championship belt, but fight has been lost. After a career of Dickie firmly hooked on crack launched in the winds, at the same time training his younger brother Micky ward. So, after a brief retreat back to the game bale. On my opinion is his best role. With the first minutes of the film I was fascinated by his play, facial expressions, gestures, insanely funny moments with out of the window of Dicky Eklund, a 40-year-old man in attempt to escape moms and what his face when he still got caught. Long ago, I not so laughed. Bale is very well conveyed the emotions of his character, it the internal feelings, when he finally realized what was selfish, using Mickey to satisfy their ambitions. Never been a fan of Christian bale, so how not to respect some films in which he took part, but after this role I became a fan.

All of the characters, such as himself Micky ward, his mother, sister, father, girlfriend and another coach, the old police shows a very colorful. Their feelings, emotions, aspirations and ambitions are so realistic they are going to play that you (at least I'm sure) they know someone they are sincerely concerned about someone you despise or hate to despise, someone to become just a pity, but someone start to respect, as know if these people personally.

The film shows a very realistic atmosphere of a small provincial American town. Very well transferred about Boxing kitchen — agents, trainers, hype, press conferences, the weigh-in. All very realistic.

And now I will swear. As long dedicated Boxing fan, not close eyes so inept staging fights. One of the most important things in Boxing — ability to move, work the legs. In the film is boxers are on the place, turns trying on the role of the pear. In addition to this, the bumps and protection set is also not very well.

I try not to notice historical inaccuracies in movies that are not claim to be a historical documentary or biographical. But here we show boxer, which existed (and exists at this day, the truth is not as a boxer) to really his story is real. So that is, half of the opponents of ward, shown in the film — the characters are fictional. With a track record Mickey the writers are rather at ease, releasing as important battles and all unscheduled defeat, designing of the existing elements of the history of a triumphant "comeback", and belt WBU almost do not equate to the world title. Yeah and, frankly, Micky "Irish" ward, to the number of legends of world Boxing will never attitude, and so I was at the beginning a little surprised by the desire of producers to make about this movie, because in the history of Boxing, every second, I apologize for the tautology, story, my subjective opinion is worthy of adaptation.

To summarize, I would say that if you ignore inconsistencies with the real facts that took place to be, and regarded the tape with the point of view of a family drama, but not sports, then the picture is very good — interesting with the intense emotions and drama, not the issuing of of screen up to the final credits, the plot, is very well described and played characters, the passions, the atmosphere of what is happening in everyday life, and in the ring. This film is definitely worth a look. And if I was an ordinary movie buff, almost not familiar with the world of Boxing, then I would, without doubt, put

Of 10 10
