Critic Reviews for Inside Moves
Diana Scarwid received a Supporting Actress Oscar nomination for this sensitive but uneven melodrama about an embittered disabled man, well played by John Savage.
There is so much high drama and splendid triumph that the movie loses any basis in reality, so it's impossible to relate to what anyone's enduring
Audience Reviews for Inside Moves
A boring, aimless film that builds little tension and doesn't have nearly enough humor to avoid sinking into a soap-opera swamp.
A must for Golden State Warrior fans. A speaking role for Clifford Ray and appearances by Phil Smith, Raymond Townsend, Robert Parish, Sonny Parker, and Tom Abernathy. The movie itself is okay. David Morse in his debut and John Savage in his prime.
Just okay. This little melodrama reminded me of "Good Will Hunting," but wasn't nearly as good of a film. It's one of only three films featuring Oscar-winner Harold Russell though, and that made it interesting to watch. William Wyler told Russell there weren't many parts in Hollywood for actors with no hands, but Russell definitely had talent, screen presence and charisma, even if he did lack hands. We should have been able to see more of him.
