I was hesitant at first to watch the movie because I wasn't in the mood for a fighting movie, much less about boxing. But the hubby said it's a good one, so since it's a paid movie and it's already on I sat down and watched it. Surprisingly, it wasn't bad at all. I should say it's a pretty good movie. It stars Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale and it's about the real-life story of boxer "Irish" Micky Ward and his rise in getting the World Light Welterweight title despite the odds. Christian Bale as the troubled trainer and brother also portrayed his role to a T. I'd rate it a 7/10.
