The Imitation Game Instareview

IMG_3946 “The Imitation Game…It’s a game. A test of sorts. For determining whether something is a… a machine or a human being.”
Okay just saw this brilliant movie about how Turing and four other code breakers cracked the “unbreakable” Enigma code. This is first movie in long time that moved me to tears and I couldn’t move for a while. Eventhough there are some inaccuracies (Turing personality and some og the other people) it still entertaining and given that the purpose was to inform people about Turing and how he played a big role in winning WWII and the computer technology we know today – and it is a fiction film – it really captures you and I really have to do with the performance by some great actors. And to end this review Benedict Cumberbatch does an exelent job as Turing… I would recommend people to see this amazing movie if you haven’t already!

Dialogue from The Imitation Game – let me try and we’ll know for sure

download (1)COMMANDER DENNISTON: Enigma isn’t difficult. It’s impossible. The Americans. The French. The Russians. The Germans. Everyone thinks Enigma is unbreakable.

ALAN TURING: Goody! Let me try and we’ll know for sure.

First I have to say… I haven’t seen this movie yet (live in Denmark, so it hasn’t premiered here yet), but I have followed and waited for it for so long I had to post something – so here’s a talk between Commander Denniston (Charles Dance) and Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch).

I really hope this film gets nominated for an Oscar.. but we will find out on January 15th.

This is all I have to say right now, but I will be back with a review when I have seen it (going to see it on January 14th).. bye for now!
