Jeremy of The Daily Rotation wrote, "It’s always hard reviewing a film that’s main plot is centered on a sport that I do not care for. Moneyball is a baseball drama that is based on a true story. It translates well to film and manages to gain interest due to the star Brad Pitt and the rest of the cast, but it never reaches greatness. It’s a good film with an interesting story that gives the viewer tons of knowledge of the sport, but it loses steam in the bottom of the ninth. It feels like wasted potential. That being said it also could have been much worse. Instead of becoming one of the better films of the fall it settles with being a good one to watch, but not much more."
