The Fighter. David O. Russell. Decent movie. Correct to win the Oscars. Bale is pretty good and so is Melissa Leo. I know I want to be positive about this movie, but perhaps it was just too easy. Of course Wahlberg fits the main role, of course Bale will do his typical acting with complete immersion and of course the story tells so nicely. But did it really move me as a person? Not really. Missed chances in life are common, the longer I think about this movie it also becomes just average. For Bale followers, a must watch but just a technical knock out. (2010)
