The Final Season Review

It's about as cliche as sports movies come but it's really earnest and everyone tries hard to make it work. The story itself, culled from a true story (of course), is remarkable as a small town team about to be dissolved with numerous players and their legendary head coach having departed against all odds for a championship. The performances are decent enough, though they actors are reading lines that are so baseball as Americana cliche that they seem to be written by the ghosts in the cornfields in Field of Dreams. I wish I had more to say about this but it's basically just a fairly well done by-the-numbers cliche sports movie. If that's your thing you'll enjoy it, if that sounds terrifying to you then, likely, you won't.

Overall Score: 6/10
