The directorial approach to the Million Dollar Baby is the least impressive. The Eastwood creates evocative atmosphere using light, the pace of narration and music (he wrote). Since the beginning of the film operates on the known pattern and Adaskalou mathitiA. But to use boxing terms, the film script with an unexpected reversal, manages to achieve a sudden punch to the viewer by changing climate ... read more

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

A very good movie

“If I remember correctly, I saw it when it was released but never re-watched it ever since so I was really eager to check it out again. Basically, pretty much like ‘Changeling’, Clint Eastwood used a very well known template (a rag to riches tale of a boxer) but gave it an unexpected twist and the end-result was truly remarkable. Eventually, the movie was still about boxing and the rising of the main character was pretty entertaining. However, whereas boxing or other sport features just stop there and never become really compelling, Eastwood made a master move. Indeed, he further developed the story and it became something entirely different and really spellbinding to watch. So, the story was really fascinating and the acting was really good as well, resulting in a 2nd Academy award for” read more

“This movie was great up until the incident in the fight with the stool... In all the history of prize fighting I doubt anything like this has ever happened or will ever happen. It's preposterous once you really think about it. The fighter should have just been beaten badly, over matched, maybe beaten to the point where she falls through the ropes into the chairs - now this happens at times... I guess if you are not a boxing fan the filmed event may seem plausible...” read more

“Million Dollar Baby is a boxing film but it's not about the life inside the ring: that means it's not energetic. It's not about the life outside the ring: that means it's not dramatic. It's about journey, the road that connects these two worlds, the fine strip in which one comes alive that's between shadow and light. This film is unique in the respect that we get to see two relationships from two characters' point of view. One, a relationship between two generations and two; the tact passion for their mutual love for boxing. Frankie is a wounded man, a person broken by his past and present that continuously gets damaged by his uncertainty of the future. Maggie is almost Frankie's reflective, but with distinct differences: she's not much about the past or the future, but is focused straight” read more

Champion Film Making

“Million Dollar Baby is a movie I find works on different levels. One first viewing I found the majority of the film great right up until the plot’s heartbreaking turn of events, it easily ranked as one of my new favourite films of all time. On second viewing however I found substantially even better as I was waiting in dread for the proceeding events.

Clint Eastwood’s direction on Million Dollar Baby is near perfect, he makes the art of film making look easy. It amazes me the effectiveness of his films despite their simplistic (at least on the surface level) and humble nature.

For as dark and serious as the film is, it still manages to incorporate subtle humour with the dialogue exchanges between Eastwood and Freeman. Not many other films come to mind which can be a” read more

" Swank’s rigorous training schedule saw her shed 20lb. Not only that, but she was almost hospitalised for three weeks after a blister from training got infected – something she kept secret from Eastwood. The training was worth it, though. “That's part of my job,” she says. “If I'm going to play a boxer, I better look like a boxer.”"
