WHAT THE CRITICS SAID:
“The story of Roy Hobbs’s romantic quest to become ”the best there is” is as magical, funny and sad as anything Mr. Malamud has ever written.” – Vincent Canby, New York Times

The Natural is a movie of many special moments that add up to a minor epic where the human element is magnified, not diminished, by the spectacle.” – James Beradinelli, Michael Brody, ReelViews
