Million Dollar Baby

2004.USA.Eastwood

3.0 / 4.0

Clint Eastwood’s Million Dollar Baby is a well directed, acted (Morgan Freeman being the standout) and written riff on a story that wouldn’t be out of place in a daytime soap. It’s a fine film constructed from superior elements. In his review of it, Steve suggests that it will leave viewers polarized. Some will see cliché, and others cliché transcended. I fall into the first group, but with an asterisk. Million Dollar Baby is cliché perfected, Mystic River is better, and there’s not much more to say.
