I just watched this movie and it was incredible! What an amazingly brilliant man Alan Turing is. He completely changed how WWII played out and for the better. I can't imagine how different it might have gone, had he not done the thing he did! I am going to be researching more about him, after having seen this movie. It's incredible - based in a true story, great acting, so interesting and heart breaking at the same time.
The Imitation Game is a movie which is based on the true story of Alan Turing and how he was able to build a machine that broke Nazi Codes called the Enigma. Its pretty interesting and I was left wanting to know what happened next when I was watching.
He's the man!! I like movie a lot. Very interesting story and excellent acting. Im just so happy that we live now and here, things people had to live with back then were too crazy.
This was a great movie - the acting was exceptional. Benedict Cumberbatch did an amazing job embodying this largely forgotten yet incredibly important person. I'm glad this story was told, and I'm glad they didn't gloss over the fact that he was gay, and that they included the fact that he committed suicide while on therapy drugs.
In 1939, newly created British intelligence agency MI6 recruits Cambridge mathematics alumnus Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) to crack Nazi codes, including Enigma -- which cryptanalysts had thought unbreakable. Turing's team, including Joan Clarke (Keira Knightley), analyze Enigma messages while he builds a machine to decipher them. Turing and team finally succeed and become heroes, but in 1952, the quiet genius encounters disgrace when authorities reveal he is gay and send him to prison.
An excellent cast brings this fascinating true story to life. This was a story that needed to be told and I was spellbound by the genius of these group of men and a one woman who were able to create this machine that would ultimately save so many lives and shorten the war by two years.
