Synopsis:
In the wake of a painful estrangement from his daughter, boxing trainer Frankie Dunn has been unwilling to let himself get close to anyone for a very long time - then Maggie Fitzgerald walks into his gym. In a life of constant struggle, Maggie's gotten herself this far on raw talent, unshakable focus and a tremendous force of will. But more than anything, she wants someone to believe in her. The last thing Frankie needs is that kind of responsibility - let alone that kind of risk - but won over by Maggie's sheer determination, he begrudgingly agrees to take her on.
In turns exasperating and inspiring each other, the two come to discover that they share a common spirit that transcends the pain and loss of their pasts, and they find in each other a sense of family they lost long ago. Yet, they both face a battle that will demand more heart and courage than any they've ever known.

Million Dollar Blubber - Million Dollar Baby review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
15/08/2006

Well what can I say? A friend suggested I watch this, I heard it was about a female boxer and just thought no thanks, then one rainy sunday when I wasnt at the pub! I put it in and oh my goddddddddddddddd! well i was hooked, eastwood plays a good part but Hilary Swank plays an amazing part, this woman is genius, and quite sexy in a weird masculine kind of way, anyway, a fab story line of the girl with nothing makes it big, but with a sad twist,but hey i could handle that, what I couldnt handle was when Eastwood tells Swank what the words on the back of her boxing robe mean, oh my god, I can only say what followed was the sobbing noises of a young child who has been told that their pet earwig has died. this is a must see film, even if you hate boxing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Superb drama - Million Dollar Baby review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

When I first heard what the film was about I didn't fancy it, but am so glad I tried it. Hilary Swank is very believable as the 'trailer trash' with a dream, whilst Clint Eastwood has the role of miserable old beggar down to a tee. I was absorbed by the whole story, enraged by the ungrateful gold diggers, and cried buckets more than once.

A must see.

Beautifully Made - Million Dollar Baby review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
18/05/2008

Not for the faint-hearted, Million Dollar Baby is less a boxing movie, and more a superbly weaved story of ambition, emotional scars, and regret.

Again, Clint Eastwood creates a beautifully put together film, where almost every frame is an example of tip-top cinematic photography. The score works well, and the performances are as good as you'd expect from such a heavyweight line-up.
