Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman
This one, as thoughtful as it is rousing, scores a TKO.
83
The A.V. Club - Scott Tobias
Bale's live-wire performance typifies the many major and minor elements that elevate The Fighter from the deeply conventional sports movie it might have been into the endearingly offbeat sports movie it turns out to be.
75
Observer - Rex Reed
These are characters so repulsive that it's hard to care what happens to them, but it's to the credit of a superb cast that you do end up caring.
70
Boxoffice Magazine - Amy Nicholson
In its small moments, say when Walhberg sighs that his robe misspells "Micky," The Fighter feels clued-in to the very small, very tough world of a man trying to make his way out of his block-and after getting to know his family, you want to help him pack his bags.

Variety - Unnamed
If The Fighter feels like kind of a mess, lurching from one scene to the next as if the film itself has taken a few hits to the head, that's not entirely a bad thing.
