I don't think it's his masterpiece, but it's a big, beautiful, sad film with unforgettable performances.

Anyone who doesn't believe that Clint Eastwood is one of the best film-makers in America ought to see Million Dollar Baby.
February 27, 2015
The movie is simultaneously conventional and subversive, broad and nuanced, shamelessly manipulative and genuinely moving, a cheap sucker punch and a work of real moral weight.

I'd be amazed if Swank failed to punch her way to a serious prize after this feat; she is an extraordinary bundle of ferocity and ice.

Performances throughout are superb.

Though conventional in many respects, it feels like no other boxing film ever made, due largely to Eastwood's unmistakable presence on both sides of the camera.
January 28, 2005
[A] solid boxing drama.
January 15, 2005
A glorious knockout punch of a movie.

Ripe with boxing movie clichés and slow to the point of distraction, this melancholy tale of an ageing trainer and the girl pugilist he takes under his wing nonetheless packs a stunning emotional punch.

No movie in my memory has depressed me more than Million Dollar Baby.
