It's too bad it is nihilism dressed up as compassion.
January 27, 2005
It's strange that so many have mistaken its dull sincerity for something profound and moving.

Don't believe the hype about Clint Eastwood's boxing pic: This cliche-filled mess is a fixed fight.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
July 18, 2008
This is Eastwood's weakest work in years, perhaps because it yokes itself to a hot-button theme instead of a story that resonates.

January 27, 2005
A thematically inconsistent and dramatically unsatisfying false idol that has been strangely elevated to the level of Clint Eastwood's actual masterpieces.

February 1, 2005
Hilary Swank [deserves] an award in a new category for the most winning performance in the movie I'm least likely to watch again.
February 21, 2005
Un film moyen dont on ne se souviendra plus dans quelques mois, un jab sans grande force qui ne laisse aucune marque.
| Original Score: C+
January 9, 2005
Manipulative, demeans religious trust and Catholicity, is anti-hope, anti-family, pro euthanasia propaganda, brutalizes femininity, and is terminally depressing.

December 28, 2004
Its originality sucker punches you in the face and you barely have time to recover.

January 13, 2005
Eastwood's latest featherweight masterpiece. After his wildly over-praised Mystic River, Eastwood delivers another sucker punch, and critics have fallen for it again.
January 29, 2005
There's no denying that Million Dollar Baby packs some unexpected wallop in its latter stages. But Hawks and Siegel would never have put their name to anything this pretentiously sombre from start to finish.
June 12, 2005
On the surface it all seems very reasonable, but it exhibits an innate jingoism and its "feminism" is too thoughtless to be believed. An ungainly, smug film.

March 1, 2005
Eastwood continues his streak of demonizing lower class living.

January 8, 2005
A phony, simplistic and cheap way for Eastwood to address an important and complicated social issue. At least Swank kicks butt.

January 19, 2005
A competently assembled collection of tired clichés, ham-handed sentiment, murky photography and predictable melodrama.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 17, 2005
Deeply troubling and potentially gravely harmful artifact of the culture of death.

December 15, 2004
It worked in 1962 with Requiem for a Heavyweight, a shame it hasn't gotten any fresher in the intervening forty-two years.
| Original Score: 2/4
December 18, 2004
Solemn, inflated and dull.
