Antwone Fisher tells the real life story of the title character. A young black navy seaman faces his tough and miserable past with the help of a caring navy psychologist and then sets out to change his situation by confronting his inner struggles and finding the love of the family that he never knew.
The film is beyond brilliant. Denzel Washington, hot off of his Oscar winning performance in Training Day, scores big with Antwone Fisher. He not only stars as the psychologist, but directs this flawless drama in his first ever debut in the director's chair. Derek Luke, a name that is destined to shine in years to come, portrays Fisher with such conviction that he successfully steals the show in the scenes he's in with Denzel.
The film is very heartfelt. It will bring tears to your eyes.
A very recommended movie.

I must admit (shamefully) that this did move me to tears. It is definitely a sad story, but unfortunately it is too true, and not only in the ghettoes.
Antwone Fisher's story shows the importance of families in the emotional development of human beings at the earliest age. In a time when we have been bombarded with guilt-stories we tend to shake off what we consider as another attempt at making us feel guilty. But this story isn't about making anyone feel guilt. It shows the struggles that face people who have not had the security of a family, and it helps those who haven't experienced that sort of insecurity relate to those that have.
I'm not a big-fan of love interests either, but I think it was important to show that his girlfriend played a role in his rehabilitation. One thing I did not like about the movie was Denzel's character almost compelling Fisher to lose his virginity. I don't think this sends the right message especially to those young people who may be watching this movie, but then what movies do?
The acting wasn't bad, although the movie had that Hollywood feel to it. I think some stories get through even if they are painted with tinsel-town's brush, and for this to have been Denzel's debut as a director adds to the specialness of this movie. I hope he comes out with another one sometime soon.
On another note, it's good to see a positive potrayal of Afro-American people on film, there have been too many 'gangsta' films coming out of Hollywood of late.
Finally, watch this movie to get a perspective on your own life.

Antwone Fisher is a surprisingly good movie in light of its unlikely subject matter. Most movies centering around psychologically troubled persons that are not crime dramas are just simply not very good. Antwone Fisher rises above the rest and is a very good movie.
The reason for this is that the movie is an autobigraphy of a real life person. Antwone Fisher served in the U.S. Navy and had a productive relationship with a Navy shrink played by Denzel Washington.
This movie boasts an excellent script and cast to match.

I recently saw this film about the life and times of Antwone Fisher. As a grown man I found myself weeping at certain points in the movie especially Fisher's early years of physical and sexual abuse. You can understand why he was so explosively angry. The film was directed by Denzel Washington who did a brilliant job...

I believe today's society is too reliant on counselors, therapists, and an abundance of Dr. Phils who tell us how to act and feel. But ANTWONE FISHER mellowed my opinion of couches and shrinks--made me better understand how a caring professional can make a positive difference in another person's life.
I was fascinated to learn this movie is based on a true story; I was even more impressed that newcomer Derek Luke, who plays the title role, is an actual friend of the real Antwone Fisher. Luke brings a plethora of range to his character: anger, resentment, confusion, forgivness, integrity, dignity. Portraying a young sailor trying to come to grips with his painful past--trying to control his violent outbursts--Luke flawlessly stays in character, whereas other newcomers have a tendency to overact. Antwone Fisher, as it turns out, is a remarkable human being; Derek Luke effectively brings this fact to the forefront.
Denzel Washington, portraying Navy psychiatrist Jerome Davenport, is superb. Davenport doesn't belittle, belabor, or browbeat his young patient--he gains Antwone's confidence through soft-spoken empathy and compassion. As the relationship between the two men evolves, Davenport becomes a surrogate father to Antwone. Yet Davenport also has problems in his personal life; his friendship with Antwone gives him the additional insight and strength he needs to confront them.
The chemistry between Washington and Luke is extraordinary; the scenes featuring just the two of them are spellbinding. ATWONE FISHER is also Washington's directorial debut; if Washington can furnish such exceptional storytelling right out of the gate, one can only hope he'll decide to go behind the camera again and again.

I loved this movie. I think that any movie that stimulates emotion is great. There are not many movies like that anymore. I found myself laughing, crying (really crying), and feeling filled up inside during this movie. It was worth every single cent I paid for it. This movie, the actors and directors should receive awards for this one. People from every walk of life can relate to Antwone Fisher's experience. So many people find themselves in the same position. I especially loved it when Antwone Fisher walked back into his aunt's home after seeing his natural mother and finding all his elder relatives there. That was simply GREAT! I also admired the respect given to his natural mother even though he was angry with her. Honor thy Mother and Father.... Also, the way he handled his foster mother and the women that molested him as a child was awsome! I also admired the effect that his relationship with the psychiatrist (Denzel Washington) even provided a source of healing for the good doctor. Even though Antwone was attaching himself to the doctor's family, the doctor (and his wife) were also attaching themselves to Antwone. Thereby allowing the doctor to recognize his own short-comings. I think that people are able to relate to others better and have a better sense of self when they know from whence they came! Hence, I was pleased to see that Antwone Fisher was able to forgive his mother and move on with his own life. I highly recommend this movie.
