“I wasn't really sure what to expect from this flick but since the story was intriguing, I was really eager to check it out. Indeed, even though I'm a rather lousy chess player, I think it is a fascinating game so it was really neat to see a movie dealing with Bobby Fisher, probably one of the best chess players that ever lived and easily the most famous one.

"ABD nin dünya arenasina surdugu ilk ve tek satranc sampiyonu oyuncunun hikayesi. Soluk almadan izlenebilecek bir film.

Had the story had simply focused on the Fischer/Spassky matches, and the two men's diverging playing methods and personalities, it could've been something great. As it is, focusing tightly Fisher and his mental problems, it's a solid if unsurprising story. Monthly Wesley AwardBest Supporting Actor- Peter Sars"

"Tobey Maguire as Bobby Fisher ( an American chess grandmaster, the eleventh World Chess Champion. Many consider him the greatest chess player of all time. In 1972, he captured the World Chess Championship from Boris Spassky of the USSR in a match held in Reykjavík, Iceland, publicized as a Cold War confrontation which attracted more worldwide interest than any chess championship before or since) "
