Audience Reviews for Fighter
This movie really surprised me. It started out looking like a 70's style B movie, but then turned into something much more. I ended up really enjoying it. The girl in this movie did a wonderful job, and the style of the film was really quite good. Not your typical action style film. This was so much more interesting, heartfelt, and exciting to watch.
I've never seen any Natasha Arthy's work, but Fighter really surprised me since I had no expectations and only caught my attention when it happened to be on tv. It's definitely one of the best kungfu movie set in modern time that I've seen. Very simple story, and at times it gets a bit melodramatic and it's somewhat predictable, but the fights scenes were very beautifully choreographed, and I loved the ending.
Amazing unique genre piece in the vein of less The Karate Kid and more Bend It Like Beckham, this Danish film is really about the cultural conflict the children of immigrants often deal with a Western society (in this case Denmark) when they go against the traditional values of their parents. Watch out for a superb training sequence with Aicha and Emil as they race across the rooftops of Copenhagen, demonstrative of the excellent stunt work in the film and the great chemistry between them. Fighter is an excellent, sensitive and nuanced depiction of the internal discord between choosing your own passions and loyalty to your family and heritage.
