Rating: 3/4 -- A highly engaging film that frequently keeps a light touch even as it tackles weighty subjects. Full Review
[E]njoyable and entertaining....BATTLE is directed with a sure hand by the skilled team of Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton, masters of well-made storytelling...
Los Angeles Times
This dramatisation revisits those carnivalesque events in splendidly springy fashion, achieving the quadruple grand slam feat of being emotionally engaging, politically intriguing, dramatically gripping and frequently very funny.
3 stars out of 4 -- [I]t's a blast about two tennis champions going over the top to make a point....The movie comments bluntly on the here and now.
4 stars out of 5 -- Wisecracking through matches and money-grabbing photoshoots, Carell is terrific.
Rating: C- -- As the Supreme Poohbah of Pastry, Mary Berry, would far more eloquently explain from beneath the tent during The Great British Bake Off: You can have all the right ingredients and still make a gross-tasting cake of shame and disappointment. Full Review
The Reader (Omaha, NE)
Rating: 3/5 -- Directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris do a fine job defining the personal and cultural stakes of the event. However, they fail to make the narrative sufficiently gripping and suspenseful. Full Review
The Express Tribune (Pakistan)
This sports docudrama recreates the legendary 1973 "Battle of the Sexes" tennis match between Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell). When the 55-year-old Riggs brags that he can beat any woman in the world on the tennis court, 29-year-old King, then the reigning champion, accepts his challenge. Their highly publicized match soon takes on a larger meaning as a milestone in the fight for gender equality. Directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris. Elisabeth Shue, Andrea Riseborough, Sarah Silverman, Alan Cumming, and Bill Pullman co-star.
