Morgan Freeman definitely has the "old, wise, black man" part down to a science. And I officially hate East Berliners! I hope that ***** feels real bad about what she did! I just want to hit her with a rolling pin. :wife
Overall it was a good movie. I didn't expect it to move in the direction it did - I thought it was going to be another Rockie movie!
I liked the one scene where Eastwood told Swank not to hold her breath while fighting... he told her she needed to learn to breath. And yet what happened at the end? Swank held her breath while Eastwood pulled out the respirator. I'm sure that was from the stories the movie was based on. I don't know what literary device that is - irony? Foreshadowing?
Elements I didn't like... the crazy kid... surely there was a better way to get Freeman's character to win fight #110. I didn't like the priest either. The actor didn't do a good job and the interaction between the priest and Eastwood didn't make sense.
