The Fighter, is a drama about boxer "Irish" Micky Ward's unlikely road to the world light welterweight title. His Rocky-like rise was shepherded by half-brother Dicky, a boxer-turned-trainer who rebounded in life after nearly being KO'd by drugs and crime.
Boxing and films are not foreign to each other. From the artistic heights of Raging Bull to the cheesy yet awesome Rocky IV, boxing seems to be a curiously cinematic sport. The Fighter is the latest addition to this sub-genre.
