The Perfect Game (2009)
Inspiring, but the quality of the baseball scenes was awful
I thought the acting was great, but I was not a huge fan of the baseball scenes. The throwing mechanics of several of these players was awful...and there was one scene where Angel supposedly threw a strike, yet the ball was clearly spiked (thrown in the dirt). That's really the only thing missing, and I felt it was significant enough to warrant giving it a 7 out of 10. Definitely an inspiring movie though, and you could sense the support the team gained along the way. I do realize that they have changed a few things from the true story, such as the quantity of time spent playing baseball prior to leaving for America. I loved the incorporation of the actual footage into the movie. It was a bit weird too with the several instances where the coach/someone would say, "they don't speak English," yet the movie was entirely in English.
