Good. Fucking. Lord. I never thought I would get to see such a boring, repulsive shitbag of a film in this one, especially coming from a fluff-reliable director like Tony Scott (you know, Ridley’s less adventurous brother), and an actor like Robert De Niro, though maybe from Wesley "I'm a kick-ass action star, no really" Snipes. But make no mistake, this movie blew it, and blew it BIG.The story of a psychotic baseball fan Gil Renard (De Niro) whom becomes thrilled when star player Bobby Rayburn (Snipes) goes into his favorite team, the San Francisco Giants (which happens to be MY favorite team too). But Rayburn has a crisis and has his worst season ever, so Renard starts helping him to get Rayburn and his shit together (unbeknownst to him though), but goes too far as he murders another player whom had Rayburns original number and even kidnapping Rayburn’s kid so he can score a home run for him. My fucking goodness, can this get any lamer?
I ain’t going to beat around the bush. This film was utter bullshit. ZERO tension or suspense. ZERO emotions or acting. And a SHITLOAD of boredom, predictable scenes, and pathetic plot twists, ridiculous and overused clichés, the worst acting and directing I've seen in a while and an ending so fucked up and so obvious you wouldn’t believe it. It is such a lame, pretentious wasteland that there’s little or no redeeming value ANYWHERE in this film. I just can’t believe that someone in the fucking studio would’ve green lighted such a dull film like this. And it even uses The FUCKING GIANTS TEAM as the setting. What humiliation.In the end, avoid this film at all costs. Go see Major League or Field of Dreams or Bull Durnham, anything but this sack of shit, unless you’re planning on killing yourself. Worst baseball film ever made and a VERY, VERY low point for everyone involved. (0-5)
