Million Dollar Baby

Million Dollar Baby is a boxing movie with a heart-wrenching twist near the end. I found the boxing parts somewhat boring but the later parts of the movie are good. I rate it 7/10.

I had heard good things about Million Dollar Baby, so I got it from Netflix. Otherwise I am not too much into boxing. As can be expected, I didn’t find the boxing part of the movie very interesting. However, the heart-wrenching last half hour of the movie was splendid.

I thought about what I would do in such a situation. As Maggie Fitzgerald (Hilary Swank), I would probably have decided the same. But in a way, the task for Frankie Dunn (Clint Eastwood) was much more difficult.

I would rate the movie 7/10 because of the first half of the movie.

  1. I’ve gotten it twice from the library but have yet to sit down and watch it. A couple people told me it was depressing and i just can never get in the mood to watch it now. :-/

  2. I think this movie was overrated. As much as it was a drought of good movies in 2004, there were plenty of good ones in 2005.

    But Clint Eastwood was magnificent; he was actor, director, producer, music composer, and everything for this movie.

  3. renee: Yes, keep some tissue paper handy. And the Little Dude away. 🙂

    kianoush: Eastwood was definitely good.
