An average movie

Until recently, this movie was easily my least favorite one directed by Sam Raimi. However, I finally saw ‘Crimewave’ and I have to admit that, even though this movie was rather underwhelming, it was at least watchable which wasn’t the case with ‘Crimewave’ at all. Anyway, basically, after finishing the Evil Dead trilogy and before starting the Spider-man trilogy, Sam Raimi directed this baseball flick which seemed to be a rather odd choice for such a director. Seriously, I wonder how Raimi actually ended up getting this directing gig. On the other hand, Kevin Costner was rather familiar with this genre as it was already his third baseball flick. Unfortunately, I must say it was the least entertaining one. I mean, the whole thing was just way too cheesy and predictable for my taste. The final baseball game at the end was not bad and mildly entertaining but it was nothing I hadn't seen 100 times before. Honestly, I praise Sam Raimi for trying something drastically different but it is easily one of his most boring movies. To conclude, I have seen worse movies but it is still some pretty average stuff and it is not really worth a look, except maybe if you are a die-hard baseball fan.
