The Fighter Instant Reaction

Taken at 11:05am this morning, just before an 11:15 showing of The Fighter.
I'm sitting here eating lunch having just seen David O. Russell's The Fighter and my gut-reaction is that it's tough, it's gritty, it's real and it's rousing. Although the film is a boxing movie and it predictably climbs that mountain in the end, the emotional connection comes from the relationship between Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale, and the latter really knocks it out of the park - he's stunning.
