For some reason this review just disappeared
I dont really feel like re-writing the whole thing, so here is the gist:
- The first half is Rocky but with a girl, and more emphasis on the trainer.
- The second half is very dramatic and tears at your soul.
- Hilary Swank was amazing per usual.
- Morgan Freeman co-stars and narrates ala "Shawshank Redemption."
- Clint Eastwood is still cool as hell at age 75.
- Likely contender for best picture.
- Contrary to what some would have you believe, it is not political at all, just a good story.
- Really good movie. Not amazing, but really good... I recommend.
