It's about as original and interesting as its title suggests, not to mention possessing about as much personality as its lead character. The boxing scenes are uninspired and the family drama is even less involving. Not even Batman can save this bland sports movie.

Full disclosure: I dislike boxing. In fact, I don't care for sports pictures in general. Apparently, O'Russell doesn't either because the training and the matches get short shrift. Instead, focus is on two things: Bale's fight with crack addiction and Wahlberg standing up to his fucked-up family. Although Bale is mostly very good (albeit, the diet thing is getting creepy) and the idea of a quiet younger brother yearning for attention had potential, all it amounts to is a ham-and-cheese sandwich.

Great companion piece for High on Crack Street, another film I enjoyed except this time we get to see things from Micky's perspective instead of Dicky's. It's very well made and it looks really good and the performances are excellent, especially Bale who really does steal every scene he's in. And yes, this movie is a huge cliche but it works so well that it's pretty hard to care unless you suck

Definitely a triumph of style over substance: the script is the exact same underdog boxing story we've seen a million times (except for giving the protagonist a rabble of meddling sisters), but the filmmaking and atmosphere and Christian Bale and Melissa Leo's outstanding performances lift it to something rather entertaining.

33rd

By far David O. Russell's weakest film to date. Bale and Leo are convincing, larger than life characters, but the rest of the film is simply bland and forgettable.
