Nice try . . . but mostly failed
22 August 2011 | by ppantazisSee all my reviews

Thanks to the title of this movie, and because I am one of the million fans of Bobby, I was thrilled sitting in front of my TV and starting it. About 25 minutes later I made my first brake, not because I was tired, but urged to my chessbooks to see if I had really so wrong informations about this chess star. I have read his biography from many opinions, and they were all quit close. But this movie tried to change all the historical data, or the producer had no idea of the true history of Bobby Fischer. Anyway, if someone focuses on the plot, and not the bad acting, and can ignore the errors made in the movie, this is some kind of a try to see all the incredible chess action of a huge person from a specific angle, the human touch. There are some scenes causing pity for Bobby, and this was indeed the generic feeling of most of us for him. The lonely fighter, on and off the chessboard, is slightly approached by Damian Chapa, but please, read the history books next time, and pleeease learn to play chess.
