Million Dollar Baby

Million Dollar Baby won some awards or something, but it really didn't appeal to me when I first learned of it. I haven't been a big fan of Clint Eastwood movies, and I can't recall any fighting movies that are any good. Even The Karate Kid isn't so great, although it can be fun. But Million Dollar Baby had a lot of heart, and a lot of focus on the character development of Frankie and Maggie.

The fighting itself wasn't as important as much as what the fighting represented. That being Maggie's will to always go for it, despite all the obstacles put in front of her. I found myself very attached to Maggie's character, and it is unfortunate that things end the way they did. But life isn't always full of happy endings. Just decisions that make the best of the choices and opportunities available.
