A determined woman works with a hardened boxing trainer to become a professional. And gets hurt then asks to be assisted to die. (IMDb) ( )

A female boxer gets a grouchy trainer.

The first couple acts are okay - very well performed and shot, sometimes funny, but nothing exceptional. The last 45 minutes or so, which I gather are supposed to be the emotional weight of the film, are boring. It's an excellent story, and I can see how the story it's based on could be very powerful, but they just completely failed to make me feel any connection to it. Possibly because it feels like a separate story from the first half of the movie. And then there's no resolution for Eastwood's character (the main character), which is extremely frustrating. ( )

The Sea Inside -- 'Mar adentro' is much more worthy, realistic, and honest. Million Dollar Baby ends tritely. ( )

"I DON'T TRAIN GIRLS." trainer Frankie Dunn growls. But something's different about the spirited boxing hopeful who shows up daily at Dunn's gym. All she wants is a fighting chance..........Clint Eastwood plays Dunn and directs, produces and composes music for this acclaimed, multiaward-winning tale of heart, hope and family. Hilary Swank plays resilient Maggie, determined not to abandon her one dream. And Morgan Freeman is Scrap, gym caretaker and counterpoint to Dunn's crustiness. Grab your dreams and come out swinging. Million Dollar Baby is an absolute knockout.
