Film : Million Dollar Baby

Hilary Swank, Morgan Freeman
dir. Clint Eastwood, 2004, Color.

After all the awards, I had to see this movie.

I was ready for a thought-provoking cinematic experience and luckily, I was able to obtain a screener from my neighborhood bodega.

The movie started off in a rather intriguing manner and the images were rich and colorful.

Special effects were well done. I was, however, surprised at the amount of excessive gore and I hadn't realized Jennifer Tilly was in the movie.

Nearly an hour into the film, I was still waiting for my first glimpse of Hilary Swank, Morgan Freeman, or any scene dealing with boxing. Additionally, I was under the impression that this was an American film.

It all made sense when I realized I was actually watching a Japanese bootleg of "Seed of Chucky" by mistake. I knew the homicidal dolls seemed out of place.

Denzel Washington delivers his best performance to date.
