Critic Reviews for Magnus

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (21) | Rotten (5)

  • An engaging study of a beautiful but mysterious mind, which also reveals the stressful nature of world-class chess tournaments and raises the deep question of where intelligence actually comes from.

    January 18, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The loneliness of the long-distance chess grandmaster is affectingly conveyed in "Magnus," an intimate portrait of the game's reigning champ, 25-year-old Magnus Carlsen.

    December 12, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Unexpectedly swashbuckling viewing.

    December 2, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Magnus is a sweet and mostly restrained documentary about the world chess champion and occasional clothing model Magnus Carlsen.

    November 29, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • There's scant input from chess experts to explain why he's so good, what's unique about his gamesmanship and the like, and the film has nothing interesting to say about chess in general in the modern age.

    November 24, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Ree convinces us that Magnus is indeed a prodigy but, even so, his rise to the top surely can't have been quite as straightforward as the film suggests.
