Critic Reviews for The Catcher Was A Spy
A very enjoyable middle-of-the-road adventure, especially for moviegoers willing to see just about anything starring Rudd.
So much of the nuance and the outright, exhilarating contradictions of a man like Berg are burned off in the exhaust of a roving and disjointed war story.
But for a movie that wants to tell you this unbelievable story about a smart guy, "The Catcher Was a Spy" shows its hand with faux-intellectualism.
There's a curious lack of credibility and urgency in this big-screen adaptation, the kind of respectable near-miss that can happen when worthy talent apply themselves to a project they're just not ideally suited for.
In the end, The Catcher Was A Spy was much more catcher and not enough spy. What we end up with is a film that's the opposite of how fascinating its lead subject is.
