Same old boxing story, but something more. Authentic costumes, deliberate music, and beautiful fight sequences. White trash-chic. Melissa Leo shines in mom jeans, Christian Bale amazes with no body fat, and Amy Adams charms, as always. Mark Wahlberg is predictable Mark Wahlberg. Hoping Leo is future Oscar winner. Pretty certain Bale will be. A must see story, which, despite being a true story, keeps you wondering what will happen next.
