He always has quality performances. He truly is a bad ass. (Did prison time) Micky Ward is a legend where he came from. His family holding him back reminds me of many modern professional athletes of today. They come from a poor family or even well off, and their relatives & "friends" want a peice of the pie. If they see their meal ticket moving up, they will do anything to hold them back if they dont get to ride along. Luckily Micky Ward made it. Another way to describe it, is when a kid comes from a family with no educational background, and instead of support they are mocked for thinking they are "better than" "smarter" or even "acting white" for improving their lot in life. Sometimes the best movies are the ones you cant bare to watch again. For me that would include Schlinder's List. It was a one of the best movies in the past 30 years, but I could never watch it again. Is it time to call Mark Walberg one of the best actors today. He always has quality performances.
