Initial Thought: I remember seeing Searching for Bobby Fischer many years ago and loving it. I was sort of disappointed that it hadn't actually been about the infamous chess player. It did make up for it though. This however I've been looking forward to ever since the trailer. It looked amazing and to be Tobey Maguire's best performance to date.

Characters/Acting: The main cast are pr... read more

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. Well, Fisher turned out to quite a spel... read more

A good movie

“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.

Well, Fisher turned out to quite a spellbinding character and, with this material, you could definitely make a great movie but, unfortunately, it turned out to be only decent but not much more than that, I'm afraid. I won't blame Tobey Maguire who gave here a really solid performance but, in my opinion, the biggest issue was with the directing. I mean, Edward Zwick is not really a bad director, in fact, he usually choses some interesti” read more

"ABD nin dünya arenasina surdugu ilk ve tek satranc sampiyonu oyuncunun hikayesi. Soluk almadan izlenebilecek bir film. Filmi anlamak icin satranc biliyor olmaniza gerek yok, ama filmi izledikten sonra kitabini okumak isteyebilir, hayati hakkinda derin bir arastirma yapmak isteyebilirsiniz. Spor biyografisi olmasi acisinda bende yeri ozel llacak bir film. Sadece, nefis"

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- April 2016 (30 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 55min. First Viewing The cast is superb, and the film's aesthetic is as well, though Pawn Sacrifice has some trouble consolidating the information into a straightforward story. 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) "
