Claysaba Excellent, Without a doubt!!
Taraparain Tells a fascinating and unsettling true story, and does so well, without pretending to have all the answers.
Darin One of the film's great tricks is that, for a time, you think it will go down a rabbit hole of unrealistic glorification.
coverplex-12802 Alan Turing was Brilliant. He was way more than a mere footnote in the history of WWII. Perhaps building a precursor to the modern day computer. This movie is never boring and has you learning from beginning to end.
paulclaassen This was Norwegian director Morten Tyldum's first English feature, and he certainly did a styling job! This is easily one of the best films I've seen, mainly thanks to Benedict Cumberbatch's amazing portrayal of our hero, Alan Turning. Fascinating, intriguing and compelling, this was a thrill to watch! Benedict is just SO GOOD! Based on a true story, I was even more captivated.
J. (CountJonnie) The Imitation Game is a drama about the efforts of Alan Turing (Cumberbatch) to break the Enigma Code, which plays a significant role in ending WWII.The Imitation Game has the elements to be a boring drama, with standard cliches and some story elements that feel rushed. Turing is portrayed as an autistic person, unable to work with a team and unable to have social relations. So of course a big part of the story is how he creates a relation with his team and future (ex) wife. Needless to say there are elements of betrayal. Such as Turing ending his relationship because he is gay. Sarcificing soldiers in order to protect their decoding success. And of course the spy who leaks to the Russians. All these parts are rushed and don't add to the story, partially because of historical inaccuracies.The reason why that doesn't bother the movie, and why I still rate it an 8 is for the simple fact that Benedict Cumberbatch is nothing short of brilliant. Rarely have I seen anyone playing such complex emotion in a person who is unable to emotionally connect. Cumberbatch acts with his body language, words, voice, eyes, stutter, and with compelling silences. Cumberbatch, and Cumberbatch alone is the reason why the movie becomes compelling and interesting from the start to the end.
MJB784 It was interesting how he was overly intelligent with codes and patterns and was able to break various codes involving the war with England and Germany. I liked it, but not loved it. It was sometimes boring. I enjoyed the life of the main character more than the spy story.
