Amazing performance by James McAvoy almost managed to salvage the absolutely awful direction of M. Notwatchinganymoreofyourmovies Shyamalan. I'm actually not sure I hate anyone in the film industry any more than him.
Maybe this is one for the select few who attended an American college to play baseball in the 80s to watch and reminisce. As someone who did none of that, this just seemed like a movie completely devoid of a plot.
It does have a couple of air through the nose moments and the 80s feel good vibe, but that's about it really.
It almost feels as though this is the prequel/itnro to a Mighty Ducks-esque film, but finishes before the team goes on to beat all the odds and win the championship.
