The Worst Film Ever
The film's masterful storytelling did its job. The message was clear. No need to overdo.
There is definitely an excellent idea hidden in the background of the film. Unfortunately, it's difficult to find it.
Easily the biggest piece of Right wing non sense propaganda I ever saw.
Very nice movie about solving Enigma during WWII; I loved it, and Benedict Cumberbatch did a great job as Alan Turing.
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.
This is a great film. When I saw the trailer for it I was worried I would get bored at one point because this usually isn't my type of movie. But because of Benedict Cumberbatch's outstanding performance I was gripped from start to finish. I wasn't very familiar with the story of Alan Turing but I knew he cracked the Enigma and had to hide that he was gay for many years. But that was pretty much all I knew. The film enthralled me. I payed attention to every single thing that happened in this movie. And that payed off at the end. At the end of the film some text appears telling us that Alan Turing committed suicide through cyanide poisoning after undergoing Chemical Castration for 2 years. When this happens you see the team throwing their work into a fire whilst cheering and laughing. This ultimately made the film even more emotional. Through Cumberbatch's incredible performance you really see how attached he becomes to his machine "Christopher" and it was truly emotional to watch I have to recommend this too everyone interested in history or film in general
The Imitation Game is the story of Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch), a 20th century mathematician, who is known as the father of theoretical computer sciences and the breaker of the Enigma machine during World War Two. He's also the inventor of the Turing Test, in which a machine is to be said intelligent if someone conversing with it cannot tell whether it's a man or a machine. Which makes him the father of artificial intelligence as well.What a fascinating man, and to the film's credit, the actual story cannot be watered down. The film focuses on Turing's career as a World War Two codebreaker and his invention of a machine capable of breaking the Enigma machine, which the Nazis used to hide all their important messages, making war intelligence rather lopsided in their favour. Now, to be fair, the film is rather famously historically inaccurate. Turing was nowhere as near autistic as Cumberbatch shows him, he didn't really quarrel with military leadership, he didn't confront any spies and while he was homosexual, it didn't define his life like this film is trying to claim. And that last part is a big problem in the film. Sexual equality is an important subject, certainly, but with Alan Turing there is so much more to talk about. I'd be much more interested in finding out more about his theories concerning artificial intelligence than I am watching him figuring out his feelings about male gender. But now the movie takes its sweet time raving about homophobia, effectively splitting the narrative in half, with neither side coming out feeling whole and fully realized.Still, the majority of the story is interesting. Not a perfect film, but a serviceable period drama no doubt.
