Critic Reviews for The Catcher Was A Spy
It's a disappointingly mild period thriller that's light on thrills. Even Paul Rudd, one of the most likable actors in Hollywood, can't rescue it.
The script, by Robert Rodat, skips around in time to elucidate the amped-up drama, but it never gets close to Berg's own character.
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.
