Trouble with the Curve Blu-ray Review

31 December 2012
  • Excerpt: The Film Trouble with the Curve is the first Clint Eastwood film since 2008's Gran Torino , and the first one where Eastwood hasn't pulled double-duty as actor/director since 1993's In the Line of Fire. It's not exactly a triumphant return. Eastwood plays Gus, an old coot with an attitude and an eye for baseball. It's not a good eye, but it's an eye nonetheless.

Trouble with the Curve (Blu-ray)

DVD Verdict
25 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Gus (Clint Eastwood, Million Dollar Baby ) has been the Atlanta Braves' most reliable scout for decades. Over the years, he's brought in the likes of Dale Murphy, Phil Niekro, Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, Chipper Jones and many others. However, Gus has reached his twilight years and his direct superior (Matthew Lillard, The Descendants ) thinks it might be time to, "put him out to pasture.

  • Conclusion: Clint Eastwood's return to acting should be cause for excitement, especially across from the reliably good Amy Adams, but Trouble with the Curve isn't the home run it should be. Between a forced romance, tired plot points, and a ludicrous, unsatisfying end, this drama winds up being an average movie whose cast's talent is cancelled out by its writer and director's inexperience.

Trouble with the Curve

High-Def Digest
18 December 2012
  • Conclusion: 'Trouble with the Curve' is neither a home-run nor a complete strikeout. Resting between heartfelt and sappy, the film offers a pleasant but forgettable watch. The performances are good, but the well-meaning script and direction are disappointingly generic. While the film's visual style might put off some viewers, the video transfer is strong, and the audio mix is great. Unfortunately, supplements are very lacking. Flawed but enjoyable, the movie is a solid rental.

  • Summary: Some will love this snoozefest simply because it's a baseball movie that stars big names. Well, there was a way better one of those last year.

  • Excerpt: Trouble With The Curve , the directorial debut of Robert Lorenz, is almost the exact opposite of Bennett Miller’s Moneyball . One is a bold story about a man who identifies a broken system and tries to break through the status quo by introducing a new approach to baseball scouting using statistics, algorithms and technology. The other is about a veteran scout who outright rejects any kind of new system or ideas in favor of the aforementioned status quo.

  • Excerpt: Ah, Clint, it's good to have you back. The opening scene of Trouble with the Curve finds the 82-year-old grumbling his way thought a particularly troublesome morning piss, and say what you will about him playing his first scene opposite his uncooperative penis, it's an improvement over an empty chair. Trouble marks Eastwood's first acting appearance since Gran Torino four years ago, and it unsurprisingly finds him in full-on old coot mode.

Trouble With The Curve

AV Club

  • Excerpt: Tough guys don’t age gracefully, but that’s only really a problem if they try to age gracefully. Sylvester Stallone and others have spent the last couple of years parading their oiled physiques through the Expendables films. While it’s hard to imagine them doing anything else, it’s equally hard to imagine Clint Eastwood ever joining them. That’s partly because Eastwood has a busy directing career to worry about, but also because he’s never tried not to grow old onscreen.
