Critic Reviews for The Catcher Was A Spy
Handsome cinematography fails to disguise the low production value, and constant cross-cutting between strategy meetings and the mission itself make both parts of the sandwich feel moldy.
A much more pallid experience than this eminently juicy subject deserves.
The movie is well-crafted, but it doesn't have the fullness you'd expect in a movie with so much believe-it-or-not weirdness. It feels more like a nifty anecdote.
Boring is the last word you should use for a sports-hero-turned-spy story like this; it's the only one that comes to mind after you've seen the film.
If it wasn't a true story, it would be ridiculous. But the problem with Ben Lewin's film isn't the plausibility of the storyline, it's the execution of the plot, which comes off like a stiff noir rather than a crackling thriller.
