Quite touching story and fascinating in its premise. Only issue is that being a Brit and knowing nothing about baseball a lot of the stats and terminology used meant nothing to me. Not that that's the film's fault in any way, but it lessened my enjoyment a little.
Some of the most laughably bad special effects I've seen in a big budget film. Odd considering this was never an issue in the films from which it is built. Fun enough, a bit of a mindless action romp, functional but nothing exceptional.
