I saw this movie a couple of weeks ago and it was brilliantly done. Mark Wahlberg was fantastic, and Christian Bale was nothing short of amazing. He lost some weight to play a washed up boxer who is now a crack addict. Mark Wahlberg buffed up to play his brother who is an up and coming boxer, Micky Ward. It is based on a true story, sad, but hopeful and inspirational. I give this move my two thumbs up, and if you were worried about going to see it, now you can feel confident enough to pay the 9 dollars it costs. By the way, when did it become 9 bucks. I remember when it was 4.50 to go to the movies, of course, that was a long, long time ago, in a galaxy far away. Anyway, i'll be sharing more movie reviews, more blogs etc. Hope you guys enjoy them. God bless.
