Million Dollar Baby Review

Andrea and I finally saw Million Dollar Baby last night. I have to say, I’ve been putting off seeing it for a long time now because it never seemed to be a particularly interesting movie to me despite the numerous awards it had won; although Andrea has been wanting to see it. I must say that it definitely is worth seeing. It starts out slow, but then really captures you with the richness of character development. No detail is revealed too early nor wasted. The movie sounds long (2 hours 13 minute), but does pass by somewhat quickly.

Clint Eastwood transitions between moments and time seamlessly without skipping a beat. The major premise of the movie is about fighting hard for a dream and never regretting it. It’s inspiring, but tragic at the same time; reminds you that sometimes the dream that you want so bad can be your undoing.

We highly recommend it.
