Absolutely worth seeing. This movie tactfully addresses some mature themes while still remaining appropriate for a teenage audience. The history and brilliance is exciting. The performances are extremely believable! It's a slow moving film and I imagine adults will appreciate it more than young teens just from a pacing and history standpoint.January 16th, 2015 · Details
I found The Imitation Game to be slow-paced, but interesting. For a film with no 'action', and the storyline of which I knew going in, I was actually surprised at how well it kept my attention. Certainly not a movie those just looking for a popcorn flick will be interested in, but anyone interested in history or in Turing should enjoy the experience. I found almost nothing objectionable about this movie. There is no language, very little violence, and zero sexual situations. Yes, Turing's homosexuality is brought up and there is some conversation regarding that ( hence my 12+ and not 6+ rating ), but it's entirely conversation-based and not a focal point of the film. Additionally, there are some scenes of school bullying that keep the movie from being appropriate for especially young children.December 29th, 2014 · Details
“The Imitation Game” recounts the true story of Alan Turing, the gifted mathematician who broke the German Enigma code during World War II. It works as a thriller, but it is fascinating as a character study.Click here to read the full reviewDecember 24th, 2014 · Details
For many years Alan Turing has been credited with the invention of the modern computer, but his major contributions to the war effort have only recently been made public. With solid performances and a fine script, this movie excels at helping us understand the incredible mind and fortitude that drove this mathematical genius, while also portraying the painful costs this man paid during a time when homosexuality was deemed unlawful.Click here to read the full review
The Imitation Game, an Oscar hopeful about World War II British code-breaker Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch, 12 Years a Slave), is a handsomely mounted, sometimes engaging but ultimately frustrating production. It takes what’s most interesting about Turing—his work to develop a machine that can crack Germany's Enigma cipher machine—and somehow manages to make it secondary to Turing’s struggles as a homosexual in mid-20th century Great Britain. It's not that the film can't be about both things, but the thrilling wartime code-breaking segues into a sorrowful story about 1950s social norms designed to evoke pity and, possibly, rage.Click here to read the full review
