"Enigma" blends fact with fiction as it tells a carefully crafted story
about the unseen and unsung heros of British WWII code-cracking who
decrypted the infamous "Enigma" code which Germany used to command it's
U-boat armada in the North Atlantic putting allied convoys in peril. With
plenty of history and super-secret code cracking to feed the left brain and
a dramatic tale of a top code-cracker and his surreptitious affairs of heart
and mind for the right brain, "Enigma" has something to offer everyone. The
film manages it's intricate plot well, offers solid performances, blends
intrigues with lots of WWII crypto-speak, and moves along swiftly while
staying real and avoiding the usual excesses of filmdom. A smart flick for
smart minds. (B+)
