Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: For Mr. Sayles, whose idealism has never been more affecting or apparent than it is in this story of boyish enthusiam gone bad in an all too grown-up world, Eight Men Out represents a home run. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, May 6, 2014

Rotten: Sayles often seems like a man who, trying to stretch a single, gets caught between bases and is desperately trying to evade the rundown. – Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Perhaps the saddest chapter in the annals of professional American sports is recounted in absorbing fashion in Eight Men Out. – Variety Staff, Variety, May 6, 2014

Fresh: It's a period re-created with a whoosh of energy and a redeeming vein of irony. – Sheila Benson, Los Angeles Times, May 6, 2014
