NYT Review: Broken Codes, Both Strategic and Social

In “The Imitation Game” Benedict Cumberbatch plays Alan Turing, whose code-breaking work helped win World War II yet whose homosexuality led him to face indecency charges in Britain. — A. O. Scott Read the review

Movie Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes®
 

A moving tribute to an extraordinary man.

Mara Reinstein, Us Weekly, 2015-01-19

 

The "action" here is Turing tinkering with his machine. Or simply thinking -- which, as Cumberbatch portrays it, is adventure of the highest order.

Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, 2015-01-04

 

It's a film about drive, about imagination, and how brilliance thrives outside the mainstream. These are common enough themes given uncommon purchase in a film about a man who likely saved millions of lives by never fitting in.

Tom Long, Detroit News, 2015-01-04

 

[Cumberbatch's] whose portrayal of the British mathematician and WWII code-smasher is a feat of nuanced intelligence, a portrait of anguish with hints of arid humor. And, yes, arrogance.

Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post, 2015-01-04

 

Produced with a Masterpiece Theater eye for period detail, but also with a missionary's zeal to honor a wrongly dishonored man.

Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer, 2014-12-25

 

Cumberbatch is moviedom's man of the moment, and with this painfully human performance, the actor who has specialized in difficult geniuses finally cracks the code of compassion.

Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 2014-12-24

 

This film's overall success hangs on Cumberbatch and what is, to date, his finest performance on the big screen.

Bill Zwecker, Chicago Sun-Times, 2014-12-24

 

It would be hard to foul up the story of Alan Turing, and thankfully The Imitation Game doesn't.

Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News, 2014-12-24

 

While their careers include fine performances, Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley are so ambitious, so subtle and so intelligent as the protagonists of "The Imitation Game" that their earlier work feels light.

Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, 2014-12-24

 

Turing may finally be getting what he deserves as the straightforward and well-acted The Imitation Game, featuring a strong performance from Benedict Cumberbatch as Turing.

Cary Darling, Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com, 2014-12-24

 

"The Imitation Game" is both an education and a pleasure - and another chance to revel in what Cumberbatch can convey in eloquent silence.

Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times, 2014-12-24

 

Unlike The King's Speech, which won a clutch of Oscars for its dull propriety and Masterpiece Theater vibe, The Imitation Game is vibrant and lively, engaging you on several levels.

Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald, 2014-12-23

 

Cumberbatch's finely calibrated performance helps bring to life one of history's lesser-known stories and most shameful injustices.

Rafer Guzman, Newsday, 2014-12-23

 

It's easy to see The Imitation Game as a triumph - after all, Turing accomplished what all the experts claimed was impossible - but it's equally apparent that underlying the triumph is a tragedy.

James Berardinelli, ReelViews, 2014-12-17

 

As uncomplicatedly likeable and effortlessly rootable as its main character and star, The Imitation Game ultimately wins at any easy game, when it could have risked - and revealed - so much more.

Geoff Pevere, Globe and Mail, 2014-12-12

 

There's a film to be made about how government secrecy came spiraling out from Bletchley to conquer the future in which we now live, but "The Imitation Game" would rather give you a very good night at the movies.

Ty Burr, Boston Globe, 2014-12-11

 

A handsome and stirring film of Second World War ingenuity that also succeeds as cracking good entertainment.

Peter Howell, Toronto Star, 2014-12-11

 

We go into a movie knowing that the subject was as genius or a hero, a martyr or titan. We should leave with a more nuanced understanding of who he was, his complexities and flaws.

Elaine Teng, The New Republic, 2015-01-04

 

This film about one of the past century's smartest humans at times treats its own audience like a classroom of remedial learners.

Dana Stevens, Slate, 2015-01-04

 

Consider the code cracked, translated, and laid out for all to see: different is special is good, and ordinary morality is a sham, anyway.

Matthew Lickona, San Diego Reader, 2014-12-23
