Just saw it. It was great; Marky Mark did a really good job and Christian Bale should win Best Supporting Actor IMO. Great flick...

packed theater today...
really good film, Mark Wahlberg plays it like he usually does in almost every role I've seen him in but it works.....and Christian Bale steals the show. Two thumbs up from me & the Dragonlady...

I saw it last night in the Flick theatre in lexington which had one scene in the movie.

Great movie and accurate portrayal of Lowell as well.

Definite guy flick that rocks.

How'd you like Micky Ward's sister's in the movie ? dammm .. tough to pick just one .. My wife's work the women there all loved this movie .. alot going on ,, fight in the ring ,, fighting for life in the streets (crack),, love story ,, comic relief ---> sister's ..mother,, poor husband .. I think this movie has a great chance at winning something .. saw it twice .. second time was just as good .

Watched it last night. Awesome flick. I assumed the movie was going to end with the Gatti fights though. Those are some of the best bouts i have ever seen.

Everything is better on the rocks.

watched it last night. very good flick and agree Bale was incredible. The sister and mom were hilarous.
I knew nothing of the story and was happy with the ending.

Just saw this for the first time last night. Very good movie but I thought the fight scenes were just ok. Obviously the story line was great but the actual fights did no justice.
