Million Dollar Baby

This movie is one in a million! How refreshing it was in this day and age of lousy movies and bad acting to finally watch an Academy Award movie (4 awards). How Clint didn’t win best actor is beyond me.

This is NOT a boxing movie; this is a movie about a man cultivating a relationship with a young woman in a manner that he had wished for with his own daughter, whom he has no relationship with at all. Clint Eastwood, Hillary Swank, and Morgan Freemen, another terrific actor, are wonderful in their roles.

Also, no controversy here either in relation to the end, which I won’t spoil, but it takes up all of the final 15 minutes. Enjoy this movie!

PS: Is Clint Eastwood getting even more brilliant in his old age or what!? Talk about ONLY doing class projects!

I thought this film was amazing! Well acted and powerful. I also love Clint Eastwood's directing style, ever since "Unforgiven."

I agree, this movie is phenomenal. Unfairly criticized by some fanatics over that ending.

I do think Jamie Foxx deserved that Best Actor. What a job he did in that underwhelming movie, Ray.
