Moneyball (2011)

Rotten Tomatoes Rating94%
Release Date23 September 2011
Directed ByBennet Miller

Moneyball might be famously known as a Brad Pitt movie but that doesn’t take away the impressive work portrayed by Chris Pratt as the character of Scott Hatteberg. The plot is based on the game of baseball with the majority of the part focusing on what goes behind the scenes. Pitt’s character of Billy Beane struggles to earn a name for himself in the sport after failing as a player.

Billy Beane comes up with a statistical plan for a team of underrated players with his limited budget. He spends days shortlisting the players and forms a team that no one else would bet on. The movie is a masterpiece in terms of smart scriptwriting and equally intense execution. Like all other Chris Pratt movies, this might not have him the lead but it is worth mentioning here.

The 2012 release brought the action live on screen and every bit of the movie was pure perfection.

All the Chris Pratt movies have seen him getting skin-deep into the characters and this one is no different. The actor underwent a physical transformation and bulked up to portray the character of Navy SEAL operator Justin Lenihan. The actor received praise for his work as he beautifully balanced the goofy nature of Justin with his serious attitude when it comes to work.
