Million Dollar Baby Reviews
So wrongly advertised!!
I thought it would be a Rocky kind of film!!
Gratuitous heartbreaking sadness!
Sadest movie ever. Wanted to walk out but husband wanted to stay.
Why is it that if a movie is sooo sad it gets great reviews and ratings!
This film is a beautiful & soulful film that many think will be just be a 'Girl Rocky' but goes in an unexpected & powerful direction.
A moving film of a Father & Daughter story that has a powerhouse performance by Hillary Swank & probably one of the best supporting actor performances on screen by Morgan Freeman. A wonderful that is just as satisfying years after than I originally saw it.
Brilliant beyond description. Much much more than simply a boxing movie. It's a movie about friendship, looking out for one another and caring for those you love. Wonderful character depth and development and relationship development. Made by a twist nobody would see coming, and an ending that is emotional beyond compare.
Superb performance by Hillary Swank in the lead role, for which she won her second Oscar. Clint Eastwood and Morgan Freeman are also great in their roles - Eastwood got a Best Actor Oscar nomination and Freeman won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar. Freeman also provides the narration for the movie, and this is always a good thing.
The movie itself deservedly won the Best Picture Oscar in 2005 and Eastwood won Best Director.
This was to be Clint Eastwood's magnum opus and came in the middle of a purple patch for him. Before this he has made Mystic River and after was to come Flags of our Fathers, Letters from Iwo Jima, Changeling, Gran Torino and Invictus.
Una dirección sublime de Clint Eastwood, actuaciones de primera categoría que trasmite de una forma solida a cada personaje, un guion que supera todos los elementos de superación deportiva y da un toque mas humano.
Million Dollar Baby is a powerful and deeply moving tale about dreams, redemption, family, and the strength of the human spirit to endure and to prevail. Truly unforgettable.
