Synopsis 4 stars out of 5 -- A finely etched character study, with Cumberbatch on towering form.4 stars out of 5 -- A superb thriller and a worthy biopic of a real hero....An impressive debut for screenwriter Graham Moore, and a big-screen career highlight for Benedict Cumberbatch.[T]he film is anchored by yet another hypnotically complex Cumberbatch performance. He's turning greatness into a habit. -- Grade: B+3.5 stars out of 4 -- THE IMITATION GAME is an immersive true story that laces dizzying tension with raw emotion.[The] screenplay does an impressive job of simplifying, condensing, and distilling what actually happened into a series of accessible 'eureka!' moments, and THE IMITATION GAME is at its best when it focuses on the collision between cryptography and proto-programming.3 stars out of 4 -- IMITATION illuminates Turing's brilliance in an engrossing and moving film that features a standout, Oscar-worthy performance by Benedict Cumberbatch.The disturbing, involving, always-complex story of British mathematician Alan Turing is a tale crafted to resonate for our time, and the smartly entertaining THE IMITATION GAME gives it the kind of crackerjack cinematic presentation that's pure pleasure to experience.The science is not too difficult, the emotions are clear and emphatic, and the truth of history is respected just enough to make room for tidy and engrossing drama.3.5 stars out of 4 -- Alexandre Desplat’s hauntingly propulsive score further enhances the suspense while capturing the gravity of the situation.[An] outstanding, beautifully nuanced....Tyldum crafted a phenomenal film -- with all the pieces of a complicated puzzle put together in such a way that the story flows seamlessly.Benedict Cumberbatch once again proves the go-to man for bringing vulnerability and warmth to a chilly, slightly off-putting intellectual oddball in THE IMITATION GAME...[Cumberbatch gives a] committed, fastidious performance. It's a consummately polished package, one that will no doubt gain its subject a deservedly wide audience.
