Synopsis

Watch: Eight Men Out 1988 123movies, Full Movie Online – A semi-fictionalized account of the scandal surrounding the 1919 World Series, coined the Black Sox Scandal, is presented. The Chicago White Sox, considered the cream of the crop and one of the best major league teams ever, has just won the American League pennant, and are odds on favorites to win the World Series against the Reds. While team owner Charles A. Comiskey publicly crows about the superiority of the team he has assembled especially in their cohesion, he is unaware that arguably the cohesion in the players’ determination to win is matched only by their feeling of unappreciation by Comiskey, especially financially as he screws them over time and time again on promises made. Sensing an opportunity, professional gamblers begin to feel out who they believe may be sympathetic Chicago players to a game and/or series fixing scheme, especially lucrative seeing as the to the disparity between the two teams. There end up being eight players “in” to various degrees, from being the “all in” negotiators between the gamblers and the players, to those somewhat unaware of what is happening, to those just in the know but remain silent. Things quickly go off the rails as each individual and group is looking out solely for his own interest, from the disparate groups of players, to the gamblers, to the scheme financiers, to the team owners – Comiskey and others – as closely watching sports journalists can see that some of the Sox players are not playing as hard or as well as they can..
Plot: A dramatization of the Black Sox scandal when the underpaid Chicago White Sox accepted bribes to deliberately lose the 1919 World Series.

Great Eight
Although I generally agree with Roger Ebert’s reviews, I just can’t understand how he was annoyed enough with this movie to give it a measly two stars. He claims that there wasn’t enough exposition. I found everything explained satisfactorily, even for the non-fan or baseball history buff. And it is period-piece film-making at its finest. I cannot imagine a better telling of this story. And the baseball action is excellent. One factual error, though: Bucky Weaver (John Cusack) would never mention Babe Ruth as better (or even comparable) to Cobb, Speaker and Wheat in 1919 or 1920. It shocks me that Sayles kept that line. USA Today heralded “Eight Men Out” as the greatest baseball movie ever, and though there is some fine company, I find it hard to disagree.

Eight Men Out is No Strike Out ***1/2
This picture hits a definite home run in dealing with the World Series scandal of 1919’s Chicago White Sox.

The picture starts off slowly but once the rigging of the series is made, events pick up at a quick pace. The movie is well paced and they do well by showing some of the highlights of the various games. Imagine, in those years it was best 5 out of 9 games.

The film shows neighborhood kids who idolized the players. As in current times, these men were supposed to represent positive role models, especially to poor inner-city youth.

We run the gamut of players, from the college guy, who took no part in the shenanigans to another player, an illiterate, who had to make his X during a court appearance.

The picture depicts the vulnerability of the players as they fall into bad company. The latter is led by gangster Arnold Rothstein.

A very good film to be widely remembered.
