I finally got to watch “Million Dollar Baby” last night.
The movie won a bunch of oscars this year, is directed by Clint Eastwood, features Clint himself, Hillary Swank and Morgan Freeman, and well everyone I know who has seen it has been constantly raving about how great it is.
So what did I think of it?
Well, of course it was great!
As in all Client Eastwood movies, he takes it easy and slow, giving time to develop the characters, enriching the story, engaging the viewers and letting them use their imaginations to further develop the story in their minds.
The story is a strong and moving one, and it tackles a number of interesting and touching issues.
It’s a drama about a hardened trainer/manager (Clint Eastwood) and his work and relationship with a determined woman (Hillary Swank) in her attempt to establish herself as a professional boxer.
You go through a number of different feelings throughout the movie, from excitement to happiness to hope to shock to sadness…etc, making it such a great and moving cinematic experience.
I really recommend this movie.
My score for it is: 8.5/10.
