Is The Plot Interesting?

The movie and the plot appealed to me straight away; I love the world war theme and it had Benedict Cumberbatch in it. What more could I ask for? But it was so much more interesting than I had anticipated.

The Imitation Game 2

Is The Acting Good?

The acting in The Imitation Game is quite amazing. Benedict Cumberbatch delivers yet another extraordinary performance, as does Keira Knightley. They have great chemistry and compliment each other so well.

Is The Directing Good?

The director definitely had a clear vision for this movie from the start which is always a good thing. And it had a certain depth about it which I think was down to the good directing from Morten Tyldum.

The Imitation Game 1

Is The Cinematography Good?

The cinematography is good enough that it doesn’t affect the movie in any way but it’s not so good that when you’ve finish watching it you think “oh wow, the cinematogaphy was amazing”.

Is It Worth Watching?

This movie will teach you so many things about the war and how it affected people’s lives but also how people were treated in that time period.┬áThe Imitation Game is definitely worth a watch.


Sometimes it is the people no one imagines anything of who do the things no one can imagine.
