The review of this Movie prepared by DW

Hillary Swank plays Maggie, an amateur female boxer. Clint Eastwood is Frank, her coach. Morgan Freeman is Scrap, Frankie's sidekick. Mix these personalities together and normally the movie would be a humdrum sporting event but Eastwood fixes that. Frank states that he doesn't train girlies and then he does. He wants to keep his distance from Maggie but finds her staunch ability to withstand any practice, exercise and indifference he can dish out with her focus intact, just the type of charm he knows.
