There is absolutely no evidence to suggest that Moe Berg was gay. None. Yet, this [travesty of a] film depicts him as such...and, a violent 'one' at that! Total and irresponsible fiction...descendants of the man himself should be batting around words like: Libel, slander and defamation.
Apart from the gross disservice done to Moe Berg's memory, the writer has also managed to re-write history [check your facts before putting pen to paper] and, worst of all, has written a story about an interesting man that is as dull as the direction.
How can you assemble such a fantastic cast and fail to deliver a substantial film? Did they [the cast] not read the script before they signed up? Nothing happens...there is a build-up...but, quite literally, when the time comes...nothing happens!!!
Considering the fact that the writer made-up anything he wanted...you would think that he would pull out all the bungs for the conclusion! Well, the bungs were certainly pulled...and, this film sinks like a gigantic stone...right before your very eyes.
Moe Berg's memory deserves so much better!
The true story of Moe Berg – professional baseball player, Ivy League graduate, attorney who spoke nine languages – and a top-secret spy for the OSS who helped the U.S. win the race against Germany to build the atomic bomb.
