Critic Reviews of "The Fighter"Time OutFebruary 02, 2011
A flawed, frequently ludicrous but overwhelmingly likeable film, old-school to the core and none the worse for it.Globe and MailDecember 17, 2010
Makes too many concessions to the Hollywood judges, pulls too many punches.Denver PostDecember 17, 2010
The Fighter is so muscularly and tenderly good because it trains its eye on the matches that take place between kin.Richard Roeper.comDecember 17, 2010
A great boxing movie, a great film about family. Gritty, thrilling, inspirational. Deserves multiple Oscar nominations.Detroit NewsDecember 17, 2010
It's audacious, it's fun, it's rowdy, and it's just twisted enough to always be interesting. Beyond that, it's one of the year's best acting showcases and likely to grab multiple Oscar nominations.Christian Science MonitorDecember 17, 2010
Only Amy Adams, playing Micky's tough-tender girlfriend Charlene, manages to be convincingly working-class without seeming either dopey or rabid or strung-out.Critic's NotebookOctober 07, 2015
But while this was amusing in a comedic or satiric context, it backfires in a dramatic narrative in which the protagonist should warrant our sympathies.The Patriot LedgerJuly 19, 2015
Russell walks a narrow line between laughing with the family and laughing at them, but the film never crosses over into parody.The Improper BostonianMay 09, 2015
Blue-collar Bostonian has replaced Southern redneck as Hollywood's white-trash signifier of choice.We Got This CoveredAugust 11, 2013
Superb performances and a well told story make The Fighter one of the year's best films.Big HollywoodJune 30, 2013
Driven by great performances and great characters, this drama is a must-see.Tribune News ServiceJanuary 16, 2013
Acting for the silver screen doesn't get more raw, moving or accomplished than what you see in "The Fighter," that rare film in which every performer in it leaves the viewer in awe.
