The Catcher Was A Spy Reviews

    A weak delivery and poor focus on the wrong parts of story with a good premise.

    Treat your viewing of this movie as a history lesson. Don't let the title confuse you into thinking it's some kind of thriller, it's not. It's a true spy story about a professional athlete and intellect during World War II. If you love film, you'll love this flick.

    I found this flick fascinating, especially since my uncle, who came to this country from Germany at 14, was used as a spy in Germany in WWII, because he could speak German without an accent. A great cast did a splendid job on this one. Probably just not Bondish enough for most.

    The story is wild - but the movie is anything but. The (slight) build towards the moment of truth...and then the moment you've been waiting for passes just like the other unmemorable events.

    based on a true story, the movie tells the story of an enigmatic Moberg, who didn't enjoy the spotlight yet a patriot. Very watchable

    As a gay man I wanted to give this a higher rating simply because of what this man represented. But the director killed the drama even before Moe Berg sets foot in Europe. Rudd does as good a job as he is given. He must have relished the role. Who wouldn't? A real man's man, hiding a secret gay sex life, turns into a spy. Too bad he wasn't given 'real direction'. I'd still recommend watching it for the unusual part of it.
