  • Critic Reviews of "Cobb"

    Chicago Tribune
    May 06, 2014

    Most biopics mistakenly try to take us from cradle to grave and end up skimming the surface. The wisdom of Cobb is that writer-director Ron Shelton knows that the close study of a single day can decode a human life.

    Seattle Times
    May 06, 2014

    Unfortunately, the movie just makes Stump look like a self-important jerk, possibly a bigger jerk than Cobb, and Wuhl's affable, weightless performance doesn't help.

    New Yorker
    March 19, 2013

    Cobb cuts right through the winner-take-all ethos of American athletics. It's a raw, inspired, audaciously funny, and unexpectedly moving collaboration between the writer-director Ron Shelton and Tommy Lee Jones.

    Orlando Sentinel
    March 19, 2013

    Ty Cobb is such a towering figure in this motion picture that it's easy to overlook Al Stump -- and Robert Wuhl's feisty, witty performance in the thankless role.

    Chicago Tribune
    March 19, 2013

    [Jones] lets it all loose here. It's the performance of a lifetime: full of menace and venom, eloquence and fire, rot and pathos, crackling rawness and realism.

    Los Angeles Times
    March 19, 2013

    The result, whether Cobb is wailing about greatness or ruminating about the dark circumstances around his father's death, is a performance too operatic and out of control.

    People Magazine
    May 06, 2014

    A curiously gripping amalgam of Patton, Citizen Kane and Melvin and Howard.

    South Florida Sun-Sentinel
    May 06, 2014

    To watch Tommy Lee Jones re-create the persona of the Hall of Famer in Cobb is to encounter the greatest SOB ever to come down the pike -- in or out of the domain of sports. The trek is hardly entertaining.

    Spokesman-Review (Washington)
    May 06, 2014

    While the story of Cobb himself is a worthy one (Shelton's treatment, believe it or not, even has its similarities to Orson Welles' Citizen Kane), Shelton shortchanges the very game that made the man famous.

    Baltimore Sun
    March 20, 2013

    Stump is well-played by affable Robert Wuhl, who has the unenviable responsibility of representing the one sane man in Ty's crazy universe.

    Christian Science Monitor
    March 19, 2013

    Cobb's accomplishments on the ball field would make for an absorbing documentary, but it's the passions and pitfalls of his private life that dominate Ron Shelton's melodramatic film.
