Critic Reviews for Enigma
A complicated and intelligent British film with a curious roster of off-screen talent.
Not enigmatically at all, it pleases and teases us -- in high style.
It arrives with an impeccable pedigree, mongrel pep, and almost indecipherable plot complications.
Jericho and Hester spend so much time on investigative idylls in the damp spring countryside that spy work starts to seem like a military garden party.
Apted and his crew pull out all the stops to craft a thriller out of material that looks better on paper than it does on film.
The combined talents of Apted, Stoppard and the stellar cast make Enigma a puzzle worth solving.
Audience Reviews for Enigma
Decent retelling of the real life story of the cracking of the Enigma code
The story of the breaking of Nazi codes during World War 2 is surely an interesting topic. Sadly, this movie does not entirely live up to that promise. The look isn't exactly cinema standard, it often feels like a British TV movie with its soft-focus flashbacks. Those, while telling an aspect of the story that's important later on, cost the film some pace in the beginning. The overall good cast and the decent last 30 minutes still make for an entertaining movie, but somehow there was more potential in this. It left me a little too indifferent and will probably be forgotten pretty soon.
Thriller about Britain's secret code breakers during World War II. Kate is great in this movie.
