A Review of Pawn Sacrifice

Sep 13, 2015, 6:46 AM |

I was fortunate enough to see an advanced screening of the new movie "Pawn Sacrifice", based upon Bobby Fischer's life and the 1972 World Championship. (The advanced screening is one of the benefits of being an AMC Stubs Member) Overall, both me and my wife enjoyed the movie; they took a few liberties, but produced a good, engaging movie about chess that got a lot of details correct.

I've written a brief review at my other blog, Science on the Squares. You can also find other comments on a chess.com news page describing the trailer.

What did you think of the movie? What would have you liked to see, or what did you think they got wrong?
