  • Marcus Killerby's rating of the film The Divine Move

    A whole lot of fun. Take that Go scene from A Beautiful Mind and mix it with equal parts Oldboy and Ocean's 11. It was everything I wanted from it and will pay dividends for the Go enthusiasts in the audience. Some of the cinematography was really brilliantly creative too and the plot and characters were fun. Many will be dismiss this movie as ridiculous, but that would be missing the point. This was great.
