The Fighter (2010)

An American action film directed by David O. Russell, starring Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Melissa Leo and Jack McGee.
A boxer has problems with being managed by his family. The manager mother roots for the trainer brother who used to be a boxer, but is now a crackhead. The brother goes to jail and the boxer gets new management, but then the brother gets out of prison.
This was alright. It had it's moments, but was generally not so hot. The plot was interesting, but a little complex. The characters were developed well, but there were so many of them. Camera-work looked fine and pacing seemed right for the scenes. I was just not overly impressed. Overall, middle of the road. I rate this o.k.
