    I love baseball as I have played it for most of my life and I especially love the movies dealing with this national pastime so when I heard about this movie before it was released I knew that I had to buy it and check it out. I was very disappointed because there is way too much talking and almost nothing about the game itself. The acting didn't impress me either. I think you can slip this one.

    Great movie, refreshing and thought provoking. I really enjoyed Paul Giamatti's character and how he engages the fallen superstar. In some ways, many people can relate to the themes in the movie - the idea of attempting to overcome inner demons, adjusting to a lifestyle with extreme stressors, etc.

    I was excited to watch this movie, because I am a huge fan of both Ethan Hawke and Paul Giamatti, but this movie just didn't do it for me. It is very slow and boring at times. I will say this though. There were some scenes that were shot and directed very well and had some interesting takes.

    I was very disappointed with this movie. I was expecting a lot more out of it. It was very little build up, the story line was week and the ending for better words sucked!!!! The movie had much potential but was a real let down! If I could return the movie and get my money back I would!

    The Phenom was a pretty good movie. It's about a highly recruited baseball star that gets a case of the "yips" after making to the "big show," and starting the psychological process to get him over it.

    Powerfully acted and emotionally affecting, The Phenom proves a baseball movie can step away from the mound and still deliver a heater down the middle.
