Viewing Notes

Finally got around to watching The Fighter with my wife last night. Very well done movie, liked it quite a bit. It’s obviously Christian Bale’s and Melissa Leo’s show here, though everyone else does a capable job as well. Mark Wahlberg’s performance was nicely understated, and a good counterpoint to Bale’s manic presence.

Melissa Leo is just brilliant, even though you spend most (if not all) of the movie despising her character.
