November 26, 2018
Stone is terrific, driven in some areas, riven with self-doubt in others; Carell makes Riggs' obsession with relentless showbiz chauvinism rather poignant. Billie Jean's relationship with Marilyn plays out beautifully, the camera an intimate confidante.

Battle of the Sexes is a fun biopic, albeit one that will likely leave you wishing you'd watched a documentary on the subject for more specific insights into these interesting characters.
November 24, 2018
Clunky editing and heavy-handed declarations masquerading as dialogue overwhelm the admirable lead performances from Stone and Carell.

With Battle of the Sexes, screenwriter Simon Beaufoy ("Slumdog Millionaire") has written another contemplative and intriguing film fueled with hearty cynicism, off-kilter frivolity and balanced relevance.

The acting in Battle of the Sexes is what elevates it well beyond the average sports film.
November 7, 2018
A solid, yet flawed biopic that does justice to its subject matter without rising to an elite level.

It's tragic how much of the film remains pertinent to 2017's culture.

Emma Stone and Steve Carell are both absolutely dynamic as King and Riggs.

The film moves forward well enough but lacks the spark viewers would expect.

Battle of the Sexes is just a flat biopic that more often than not feels like a bad parody.

It's so satisfying to watch. Sports movies are very hit-or-miss for me. When they're a hit, though, they hit hard and with gusto. This is one of those films.

Disappointing slumps in crafting King's story are wonderfully compensated with charged performances from everyone

We watch [King's] evolution from hero on the court to international icon breaking barriers off it. [And] on those terms Battle of the Sexes is a resounding success.

The directors did a credible job...it was a thorough examination of what was going on, not just the tennis match...

I liked the stories and the performances. Steve Carell was fantastic...when my daughter gets older, I'll certainly show her this film.

This is one of those cookie-cutter productions that is tailored to speak to Big Issues and give its audiences a rousing dose of Feelings, especially now that we are now in an era where chauvinism is being rightly uprooted and raked over the coals.

In fact, Stone looses herself in the role, successfully transforming herself into the iconic tennis player. Her portrayal is a well studied one.

An entertainingly inspirational biopic that works through the charm & performances of the cast and stylistic filmmaking.
August 26, 2018
Battle of the Sexes is an entertaining, fun, sometimes touching, and sometimes enlightening look at the world of tennis, the struggles of sexual identity, and the sexism of the time.

If you see "Battle," you'll be the winner - whether you love Stone or not.
