FarrierCollins’s review published on Letterboxd:
This really let me get settled in since it takes its time moving at a steady pace. That was the case until the final fight. That's when I really got attached to it, feeling a combo of frustration, anger and heartbreak. It definitely took a tragic turn.
The story and especially the characters are what lends this film the needed emotion to be impactful. Hilary Swank was phenomenal. She brings the physicality, emotional depth and that clear sense of drive to achieve one's dream. Morgan Freeman was also perfect and that's all I'll say about that.
