Synopsis Edward Zwick’s PAWN SACRIFICE is an enthralling piece of mainstream entertainment that captures the essence of Fischer’s mad genius...It’s about how we manufacture celebrities on scant pretext and then destroy them, or allow them to destroy themselves while we watch.3 stars out of 4 -- PAWN SACRIFICE grabs you and doesn't let go....You watch Maguire and slowly, with pity and terror, you understand.This fascinating drama highlights the life and career of chess champ Bobby Fischer (Tobey Maguire). Based on a true story, the film chronicles the 1972 World Chess Championship where Fischer, who is American, battled Russia's Boris Spassky (Liev Schreiber) at the height of the Cold War. The film also captures Fischer's rise from a Brooklyn boy to a chess prodigy and his frightening battle between genius and madness.
