  • The Catcher Was a Spy. The supporting cast is a sterling lineup of character actors, including Guy Pearce as U.S. military specialist Robert Furman, Paul Giamatti as Dutch-American physicist Samuel Goudsmit, Jeff Daniels as OSS director William J. Donovan, and Shea Whigham as Red Sox manager Joe Cronin, who wants Berg to quit playing...

  • On the surface, The Catcher was a Spy, appears to be a great idea for a film. It's based on the meticulously researched book of the same name, about Moe Berg (Paul Rudd), a Princeton graduate turned professional baseball player in the 1930s, who later became a spy for the OSS (the precursor of the CIA) in World War II.

  • Sundance Film Review: 'The Catcher Was a Spy'. Reviewed at Sundance Film Festival (Premieres), Jan. 18, 2018. Running time: 94 MIN. Production: A PalmStar Media presentation of an Animus Films/Serena Films, PalmStar Media production, in association with Finch Entertainment, Windy Hill Pictures.

  • The Catcher Was a Spy generates tension without a high body count or gruesome violence. But it's not Hitchcock-tight or thrilling; director Ben Lewin ( The Sessions) wisely makes it more of an intriguing character study than getting into the nuts and bolts of spying.

  • The Catcher Was A Spy Review Cinematography: 6.932/10 The film has moments that really look good and mesh well though inconsistently with the effects the story gives.

  • Review: ‘The Catcher Was a Spy’ Shares a Peculiar History LessonReview: ‘The Catcher Was a Spy’ Shares a Peculiar History Lesson. Morris, a.k.a. Moe, Berg, the protagonist of this based-on-true-events picture, was of that once elite and now seemingly rather rare breed, the scholar athlete. A Princeton graduate fluent in more than half a dozen languages, he passed the New York bar exam while beginning his professional baseball career as player and coach in the early 1920s.

  • The Catcher Was A Spy Reviews. The Catcher Was a Spy is an imperfect examination of a curiously complicated figure in American history. | Original Score: 2.5/4 I wish I liked it more. The Catcher Was a Spy has every element needed for a gripping espionage thriller, but sadly falls flat with its placid direction.

  • ‘The Catcher Was a Spy’ Review: Paul Rudd’s Baseball-Driven World War II Thriller Is an Atomic Bomb. It's hard to believe that a star-studded biopic about a baseball player who became a top-secret government spy could possibly be so boring.
