As per our in-house review, ‘Fighter’  “picks up momentum and becomes more engaging in the second half after a slowly moving first half. It only really picks up and heads toward a riveting climax in the last twenty minutes or so. The war drama, however, is an aesthetic marvel and a spectacular extravaganza courtesy of its phenomenal air combat scenes and exceptional cinematography.”
