I found it very disappointing that the creators of this movie pointed Bobby Fischer out to be a lunatic rather than having the guts to make a more balanced, controversial film.
The Hollywood-tinted spectacles this film plops on the viewers faces fail to explain how Mr Fischer was used like a pawn himself before being cast into the darkness when his country was finished with him.
The film gave us a few tiny, weeny little clips right at the end to skip over the more important details of how he was treated after the Cold War.
He doesn't like chess, he is more interested in exposing the lies of the American Government.
He called out George Bush for being a lunatic and a law-breaker while passionately claiming all he wants is "the truth".
That doesn't sound like a raving madman to me, nor does being paranoid playing world championship chess against the Soviet Union during the Cold War. Especially with a family from Russia.
The acting was fine, Spiderman and Wolverine's brother did well to keep their mutant abilities in check for some good chess.
I've given this movie 1 star primarily because it felt like Hollywood propaganda and a cowardly cop-out.
It should say "Based on a true story?"
