Critics' reviews
  • "So square it makes the original Rocky look cutting edge and Million Dollar Baby positively avant-garde by comparison"
  • "This is an utterly predictable, thoroughly manipulative and thunderously obvious movie. I wouldn't change a frame of it"
  • "A grand piece of old-fashioned Hollywood filmmaking that is easily the best movie of the year so far"
  • "f you're the sort of occasional moviegoer who feels they don't make 'em like they used to -- well, you're right. Except that Howard and Russell Crowe have just proved you wrong"
  • "The conventional wisdom is that Howard is a sentimentalist (...) I prefer to think of the director as one in the handful of Hollywood filmmakers who still know how to make mass entertainment not based on a comic book"
