Great performances. Christian Bale really steals the show (as that character would wish to), he’s practically unrecognizable. Wahlberg is obviously a good fit for the working class boxer boy, Adams is believable, the mom and dad were great, the sisters are just perfect, especially their reactions when they’re all crowded together in a space that would normally seat maybe 2 or 3 people.
And if you just want to see a pretty predictable but very well acted boxing movie, this will fit the bill.
But I thought it felt a little tired, a little “yup I’ve seen this before”. Not worth the hype.
