EIGHT MEN OUT (Theatrical Release USA 1988)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.4|5.0 Starsììì 

Eight Men Out—odd cast combination—complicates its storyline and needs a rewrite. Exceptionally low character development (sparse to none) leads to a cold, almost non-human, computer-like presentation. The brightest interest in the movie is seeing Christopher Lloyd, Clifton James, and Michael Rooker on screen.
