Million Dollar Baby

This movie is about an boxer trainer, Frankie (Clint Eastwood), an ex boxer, Scrap (Morgan Freeman) and a girl who wants to become a boxer, Maggie. (Hilary Swank) Maggie is from a dysfunctional lower class family and finds herself in Frankie’s gym to start training. Over time, Frankie finally gives in and starts training Maggie. The movie takes you through her training and her quick rise to the top and how it all comes to an end.

I liked that they developed the characters without over doing it. You hate her mom just enough – you are saddened by Frankie’s daughter just enough. You know how Scrap ended his boxing career.

I knew it was going to be sad but no one told me just how. I wasn’t ever going to watch the movie but it was on HBO last night. I thought it a gripping story and what I would have given for a happy ending.

    I thought this was a good movie and see why it had high reviews when it was released. Due to the ending it is not a movie I have watched again. I would recommend seeing it once.
