      Audience Member Not bad. Aside from a couple of cliches and tired references/homages, it's a solid movie about working towards reconciliation, closure, homeostasis and how not working to move on from your past demons/failures will not only inhibit yourself (possibly to profound extents), but it will cause damage to relationships within and outside of family. Nice work by Hynes. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Millennial kitchen sink drama explores motives around bullying from a mainly female perspective. We get to see bullying but we also get to see what may be at the root of these issues. The trouble is although well-acted, it felt very kids TV drama. And the obvious lack of budget led to a short running time that didn't really lead to any conclusion. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Jessica Hynes proves that she should not make anything that is not comedy. The plot is laborious and revolves around the most hateable character possible. The film is advertised as a woman facing her past. I can happily point out this does not happen once. The main character is beyond egocentric and wallows in her pain to the point of boredom. The whole film has a feeling of pointlessness. This would have been alright if not for the terrible acting, poor editing and weak dialogue. Children do not speak like that. Also, marketing the film as starring russel brandÂ? is a blatant commercial fraud. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Charlotte O'Sullivan London Evening Standard It was brave and smart of Hynes to leave her comfort zone. Her desperately angry characters linger on, just as they should. Rated: 3/5 Mar 17, 2019 Full Review Ed Potton Times (UK) Hynes, as ever, oozes resilience and honesty. As well as showing off a mean right hook, she has crafted a moving tribute to shattered middle age. Rated: 3/5 Mar 15, 2019 Full Review Peter Bradshaw Guardian It feels like a very personal film, well acted by the A-list cast that Hynes has assembled: a cathartic meditation on the need to heal, the need to confront those who do wrong and to confront yourself when you've done wrong. Rated: 3/5 Mar 14, 2019 Full Review Katie Hogan VultureHound Along the way her family experience small victories which adds to the feeling that no one is alone, they are a family, they don't give up on each other. Rated: 4/5 Feb 3, 2020 Full Review Aiden Canter Cultured Vultures The Fight is a worthy directorial debut that, much like the seaside town it represents, shows artistic promise. Rated: 7/10 Sep 1, 2019 Full Review Becky Kukla The Digital Fix Punching above its weight, The Fight isn't going to win gold but is still worth a watch. Rated: 6/10 Mar 19, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews
