Too much of everything
One of my all time favorites.
I like movies that are aware of what they are selling... without [any] greater aspirations than to make people laugh and that's it.
One of the worst ways to make a cult movie is to set out to make a cult movie.
The movie is more than great ! described everything in the best way !!Benedicts Cumberbatch is great and great and great !!!
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.
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.
Benedict Cumberbatch acts in a somber tale of love and consequences. It may not seem like that, but remove the wrapping paper, and it's right under your nose. The acting is truly brilliant. Benedict Cumberbatch truly performs in an Oscar winning manner. It's captivating from beginning to end.
