It's too bad it is nihilism dressed up as compassion.
January 10, 2014
The only differences between this new film and its many forebears are that the young hopeful is a woman and the finish is unforeseen.

It's impressive, in the sense that a sucker-punch impresses itself on your skull.
July 18, 2008
This is Eastwood's weakest work in years, perhaps because it yokes itself to a hot-button theme instead of a story that resonates.
June 12, 2005
On the surface it all seems very reasonable, but it exhibits an innate jingoism and its "feminism" is too thoughtless to be believed. An ungainly, smug film.

Eastwood continues his streak of demonizing lower class living.
February 21, 2005
Un film moyen dont on ne se souviendra plus dans quelques mois, un jab sans grande force qui ne laisse aucune marque.
February 17, 2005
Deeply troubling and potentially gravely harmful artifact of the culture of death.

Hilary Swank [deserves] an award in a new category for the most winning performance in the movie I'm least likely to watch again.

There's no denying that Million Dollar Baby packs some unexpected wallop in its latter stages. But Hawks and Siegel would never have put their name to anything this pretentiously sombre from start to finish.

It's strange that so many have mistaken its dull sincerity for something profound and moving.

For all its pretensions to elevating the genre, is seldom more than just another boxing movie.
January 27, 2005
A thematically inconsistent and dramatically unsatisfying false idol that has been strangely elevated to the level of Clint Eastwood's actual masterpieces.
January 19, 2005
A competently assembled collection of tired clichés, ham-handed sentiment, murky photography and predictable melodrama.

At one point, we're told that boxing moves require fighters to pivot in a counter-intuitive fashion, but except for that ghastly twist there's nothing unpredictable about this movie.
January 13, 2005
Eastwood's latest featherweight masterpiece. After his wildly over-praised Mystic River, Eastwood delivers another sucker punch, and critics have fallen for it again.
January 13, 2005
No movie in my memory has depressed me more than Million Dollar Baby.
January 9, 2005
Manipulative, demeans religious trust and Catholicity, is anti-hope, anti-family, pro euthanasia propaganda, brutalizes femininity, and is terminally depressing.
