Million Dollar Baby

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
The Academy Award winner for Best Picture of 2004 represents yet another triumph for Clint Eastwood, the former western star who has become one of Hollywood’s most talented and celebrated filmmakers. We can’t really do justice to Million Dollar Baby with a brief synopsis because, frankly, on paper it doesn’t seem particularly unique or innovative. Eastwood plays the grizzled owner of a rundown gym and the trainer of an up-and-coming boxer...

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
The Academy Award winner for Best Picture of 2004 represents yet another triumph for Clint Eastwood, the former western star who has become one of Hollywood’s most talented and celebrated filmmakers. We can’t really do justice to Million Dollar Baby with a brief synopsis because, frankly, on paper it doesn’t seem particularly unique or innovative. Eastwood plays the grizzled owner of a rundown gym and the trainer of an up-and-coming boxer who has just abandoned him in favor of more aggressive management. Along comes Hilary Swank, a trailer-trash waitress determined to become a fighter. She hasn’t got a thing going for her except a burning desire, but that’s enough to make Clint believe the girl might be worth handling. You might think this has the making of a fairly routine rags-to-riches story, and to an extent you’d be right. But Eastwood the director -- prompted, of course, by Paul Haggis' superb script adapted from F. X. Toole’s short-story collection Rope Burns -- throws his viewers a surprise roundhouse punch in the movie’s second half, turning a seemingly predictable ring yarn into an intensely gripping drama. The carefully limned relationship between this gravel-voiced old trainer and his hardworking protégée carries the story over some pretty rugged, melodramatic terrain, but it remains firmly rooted in the expertly crafted characterizations of Eastwood, Swank, and Morgan Freeman quietly effective as a washed-up fighter who toils in the gym. The dialogue is terse, and hardly a line is spoken that isn’t necessary. Eastwood’s lean and unpretentious direction advances the story without calling attention to its improbabilities; he richly deserves the additional Oscar he won for wielding the megaphone. The same can be said of Swank, whose own modest upbringing informed her portrayal of the ambitious young wannabe who chooses a sweaty old gymnasium to home and hearth because she wants nothing as much as success in the ring. Very much deserving of all the honors heaped upon it, Million Dollar Baby is one of those rare movies that will crawl inside your head and burrow its way into your memory.
