The Imitation Game

ratings5

During World War II, mathematician Alan Turing tries to crack the enigma code with help from fellow mathematicians.

2014 has come to an end, and this movie is one of its best films. Every moment of the film kept me interested and pulled in to the story and the characters. The screenplay and dialogue are so great, at times it was funny, moving, and emotional. It was not slow at all, I actually thought it could have been a little longer, because the first hour went by way too quickly. The cast and acting in this movie are incredible, especially Benedict Cumberbatch, the star of the movie. I have seen him in many movies before, but this is his best performance yet. I didn’t feel like I was looking at an actor, I felt like I was looking at a real person. I felt close to the character at times, and cared for him. He definitely deserves a nomination. Keira Knightley was great too, but didn’t steal the show like Cumberbatch. She was very good, but nothing so special. The rest of the cast are also very good.

This movie really blew me away and interested me a lot. I now want to know a lot more about Alan Turing and this story. Overall, I loved this film and would highly recommend it. One of the best films this year, and one of the year’s best performances, from Benedict Cumberbatch. A definite Oscar contender, and a must-see.

One thought on “The Imitation Game

  1. My dear Gal,
    I am glad that we could see this movie together. I agree to every word. I enjoyed it as much as you did. I think it deserves an Oscar big time as the best movie and Benedict Cumberbatch for his excellent performance. I didn’t like Keira Knightley though but in fact I never like her.
    Lots of love,
    Dvora
