overrated film of the decade

Extremely overrated. I don't what it was, but for me, this movie felt too fake, too engineered. I believe it was designed from the beginning just to give Eastwood an Oscar. Design up a script with tearful and shocking moments, add in a hot-button political topic (such as morality of keeping someone alive or letting them die in peace), and then add an all-star cast. Voila. The perfect film for... read more

I don't know if it's just because I don't like boxing or because the movie was crap (I'm going for crap) but I was bored with this pathetic attempt right from the word go. I realise that a Clint Eastwood film isn't worth watching but I wanted to know what everyone was on about. Obviously I am a sucker for punishment.
I knew it was a bad idea as soon as I started to hear Morgan Freeman's ras... read more

Description: Clint Eastwood's 25th film as a director, Million Dollar Baby stands proudly with Unforgiven and Mystic River as the masterwork of a great American filmmaker. In an age of bloated spectacle and computer-generated effects extravaganzas, Eastwood turns an elegant screenplay by Paul Haggis (adapted from the book Rope Burns: Stories From the Corner by F.X. Toole, a pseudonym for veteran boxing manager Jerry Boyd) into a simple, humanitarian example of classical filmmaking, as deeply felt in its heart-wrenching emotions as it is streamlined in its character-driven storytelling. In the course of developing powerful bonds between &quot ... (more)

"The chemistry that results from Clint Eastwood's and Morgan Freeman's presence in this movie epitomizes the main thing I like about Million Dollar Baby. These are two seasoned actors so comfortable in their craft, that they both simply move in this film with a flowing ease of two veterans of their field who are just willing to allow the emotion of the story and the naturalness and trust of each other's acting ability to drive the momentum of this movie. And their chemistry of friendship, as cli"

Million Dollar Baby

“Sometimes Clint Eastwood’s penchant for fast, loose, and cheap directing projects ends up working in the film’s favor, and other times it sinks the production because the sutures bleed throughout. American Sniper’s quickie nature was evident, look no further than that laughable fake baby, and The Bridges of Madison County excelled because an overly popular dime store romance became something greater in his no-fuss hands. Then there’s the films like Million Dollar Baby which not only benefit from the fast and loose approach, but the material demands it and is enriched by it.   I don’t go to Eastwood looking for radical alterations to the formulas that he so often works best within, but that doesn’t mean he can’t surprise you. Million Dollar Baby follows many of the conventi” read more

Movie Reviews (951-1000) (50 movies items)

" There has been many boxing sports movies but there has seldom been a film more human and believable like this one and where any punch has enormous consequence. It is a complex drama that actually dares to change the entire premise of the film halfway into it as well turning from boxing movie to pure drama. Clint Eastwood does one of his most emotional roles in his entire career and the ending leaves a mental knockdown on the viewer itself."
