Reviews:
"The best angle of the film is the way it illuminates the difference between fighting for equality and battling to hold on to perceived superiority." - 09/12/2017 RogerEbert.com


"[I]ts version of the story deserves credit for never buying into the hype and surreal pageantry of the Astrodome showdown." - 09/19/2017 A.V. Club


"[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..." - 09/21/2017 Los Angeles Times


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." - 09/20/2017 Rolling Stone


4 stars out of 5 -- "Wisecracking through matches and money-grabbing photoshoots, Carell is terrific." - 11/20/2017 Total Film


4 stars out of 5 -- "Visually it pops with ’70s colour, from stylist Ted Tinling’s bespoke tennis dresses to the blue skies and golden sunshine of the locations. And for all the serious issues being explored, the directors and screenwriter Simon Beaufoy maintain a cheeky sense of humour throughout..." - 11/23/2017 Empire


"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." - 11/26/2017 The Guardian
