    Best chess movie

    |
    Posted .

    Chess has been a part of my life for over 20 years now so I just had to watch this movie. It is the best chess movie I've seen but that's not saying much, there simply isn't much demand for a movie on chess. But the reason this movie was made isn't because of chess, it's because of FIscher. If Fischer hadn't achieved what he did and if he weren't American this movie would have never happened. If you're hoping for a Fischer documentary you're probably going to be disappointed. This movie gives a few glimpses of young Fischer and quickly moves on to adult Fischer, and ends with a short summary of what his life was like after his achievement. Think of this movie as an introduction to Fischer and why he should be remembered, and if you end up liking this movie you'd probably like watching a documentary on him. The acting was well done, I heard Tobey Maguire tried for years to land this role and it shows, he put out a great performance.

    If you like these 2 main actors then you won't be disappointed. I really like chess and the historical story of Bobby Fischer and I would suggest that you at least have a passing interest in those things or you might think the movie is boring.

    Awesome movie! In a gripping true story set during the height of the Cold War, American chess prodigy Bobby Fischer (Tobey Maguire) finds himself caught between two superpowers when he challenges the Soviet Empire.

    I remember this as a kid how the East and West would "fight" the Cold War through things like this. And the movie itself is historically accurate. Great movie!

    A riveting little drama/thriller about the chess wiz Bobby Fischer. This film deserves more attention than it has received.

    Disorienting but Interesting Picture

    The first 20 minutes kinda jump around trying to get the viewer caught up to the point where Bobby Fischer is an adult. Unfortunately that 20 minutes is prolly the most interesting part of Bobby Fischers life. After that you get decent acting and an ok story. I would only suggest this for fans of History.
