'The Phenom' is a sports drama all about examining the psychology of this teen who has been programmed from the start to pursue a career in baseball. The pressures he feels from coaches/owners, the harmful conditioning of his father, and the inability to set aside any career achievement for growing personal relationships are explored all from the point of view of the athlete.

The story is only concentrated on one chuck of specific time, which is fine, but it stops short of how deep the drama could go. I never grew any sort of emotional attachment. There are great elements at play, I just needed more of what the film was …
