Consistently exciting and highly intelligent, as you might expect from a script by Steve Zaillian, who wrote Schindler's List, and Aaron Sorkin, who created The West Wing and won an Oscar for The Social Network.

Pitt is terrific as the film's complex, driven protagonist, and he and a heavy-hitting supporting cast, including Philip Seymour Hoffman's stubborn coach, take Aaron Sorkin's smart script and knock the ball right out of the park.

I had been reduced to a slobbering gushy mess by the end of this gloriously entertaining movie even though I'd spend the entirety of the running time before this marveling at how this is the least sentimental baseball movie ever.

Thanks to the strange kind of alchemy that makes films as joyously unpredictable as any evenly-balanced sporting fixture, putting Pitt in a baseball movie pays off with remarkable results.

It's an engaging, almost exotic film.

Brad Pitt in a dugout. Oh dear; oh dear. Here is baseball, reel upon reel and inning upon inning.

What we're left with is a sporadically entertaining mess. Moneyball is unsure about what (if any) risks it should take.

The mark of a truly great sports movie is one that appeals to people who don't like sports.

An accomplished, bracingly intelligent film that scores points on all fronts...

It's the best film about statistics you're ever likely to see.

Impressively directed and sharply written, this is a hugely enjoyable, largely cliché-resistant sports drama with great performances from Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill.

November 23, 2011
A topical corporate shakedown story that anyone can relate to in this day and age, and it's all down to the Pitt-Hill chemistry that keeps you engaged.

Even if you're not at all familiar with the story, this was bound to happen, as they were hardly going to make a film about a losing team.

While making no effort to explain the terminology - mathematical or baseball-ical - the script throws enough fastballs to keep even the most ignorant of us Limeys entertained.

As an example of smarter-than-average Hollywood fare - and a sly dig at modern sporting politics - 'Moneyball' has all the key bases covered.

You don't need to understand anything of baseball to get behind this, a chest-swelling story about second chances and flipping a finger up (even a giant foam one) to The Man.

Based on Michael Lewis' nonfiction book, this film is written, directed and played with both intelligence and emotion.

Possibly the smartest, sharpest baseball movie since 1988's Bull Durham.

America's favourite past time is turned into a numbers game, as tradition clashes with progression in the baseball drama Moneyball.

A sports movie about disappointment and falling just short. Manages to make the dealing, stealing, and brain-wheeling in stadium offices enthralling.
