Critics reviews

Miller’s deliberate dampening of the usual rah-rah genre expectations play like a visceral embodiment of the film’s essential ambivalence: Like Beane, he aims for emotional detachment but occasionally can’t help but exude a low-key romanticism about the sport and the people involved.

Clearly, everybody involved felt that it would be dishonest to ignore such a notable real-world event [the 20-game winning streak] (and no doubt people would have bitched up a storm if they had), but it’s a shame that the A’s didn’t happen to win 20 of 21 with the single loss right in the middle, as that would have freed the movie (which would surely still exist) to pursue more relevant and less generically crowd-pleasing angles in the home stretch.

What are people saying?

  • smndvdcl's rating of the film Moneyball

    Hypothesises how managerial decisions based on statistical data can have far-reaching implications on a sporting team. The impersonal nature of this practice might be frowned upon on a pastoral level, but as a template for a certain type of empirical success, it is compelling. Pitt and Hill share a tag-team-chemistry rarely found in contemporary Hollywood cinema. Excellent.

  • MikeEverleth's rating of the film Moneyball

    This movie is flawless. Excellent chemistry between Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill, an engaging script that's structured like a thriller and a non-typical for the baseball genre directing approach by Bennett Miller. Just excellent all around.

  • Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film Moneyball

    Bennett Miller directs this gripping true story about the General Manager of the Oakland A's, who revolutionized the game of baseball by refocusing on statistics and numbers rather than star power, and piloted the A's to the longest winning streak in baseball history. Smart, compelling, and sharply written, MONEYBALL is a solid grown up drama that isn't your typical sports movie.

  • SALESK's rating of the film Moneyball

    A film about dispassionate statistic analyses made in a detached, meditative, near-comatose style which is as literal-minded as it is achingly dull. For its fidelity it is admirable. But I can only imagine minutiae obsessives and diehard baseball fans finding pleasure in this. Sorkin stripped of wit? Why don't you drill a hole in my head for two hours.

  • Scout Tafoya's rating of the film Moneyball

    This is a movie that proves the word Fincher-esque now needs a qualifier. Moneyball is a movie that does to Baseball what Social Network did for Facebook and what Zodiac did for a sprawling, unsolved mess of a case file. The Sorkin script keeps things funny and human and Miller's direction keeps you on the edge of your seat. I don't give a tinker's damn about baseball, but I love this movie.

  • Sarah Karina-Bogart's rating of the film Moneyball

    "It's hard not to be romantic about baseball." Hell, it's hard not to be romantic about this movie. Finally managed to watch it again and wow. It's invigorating.

  • VincentVendetta's rating of the film Moneyball

    It loses some focus when it delves a bit much into the clichés of sports film montage and Sorkin screenwriting, but for the most part it remains a great film about the American economy, about a father struggling to keep his job and proves his worth, between efficiency and romanticism. It still believes it can change the system, that it can change the rules of the game; how can you not get romantic about baseball?

  • J. O.'s rating of the film Moneyball

    Despite its beautiful cinematography and interesting backdrop, this was so plain. Hill was as grating as ever, and Pitt seems to be sleepwalking through his performance. Pratt wasn't used enough. The inclusion of real footage was a nice touch, and broke up the monotony, but it wasn't enough to save it from complete dullness. At least Miller's new effort (Foxcatcher) seems to have a mild interest in human complexity.
