8 February 2020 | by pkdyer6519See all my reviews

The most intelligence film Netflix have ever made. Espionage is always a safe bet when it comes to endulging the mind. On the eve of the Cuban Missile Crisis, a USA v Russia chess match takes place in Warsaw and CIA,KGB dirty tricks ensue. Bill Pulman is excellent as a reluctant drunk professor recruited by the CIA to obtain a microfilm undercover as a chess grandmaster. This is like a Agatha Christie film keeps you guessing who to trust and some unexpected twists. Never has a game of chess been so thrilling who needs Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice.
