The Fighter (2010)
Christian Bale proved he can step out of the bat suit and still kick ass in his Academy Award winning performance as Dicky Eklund. After losing his successful career in boxing to cocaine addiction that continues to plague him, Dicky goes on a quest to make his brother, played by Mark Wahlberg, one of the greats. Full of deep seeded family drama with lines drawn, ”Irish” Mickey Ward is faced with the harrowing decision of which path to follow as his impending lightweight championship fight draws nearer. This film about family and triumph is definitely a must-watch, if the career best performances from a fantastic all-star cast didn’t hook you already.
