Critic Reviews for Magnus
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.
The movie assumes that a chronicle of Magnus's rise will be enough to keep the audience hooked. That turns out to be the right call.
[An] insipid and uninformative portrait of singularity and obsession.
Ree makes things easy for people who don't play chess, deftly pacing Carlsen's triumphs and failures and milking the suspense as "the Mozart of chess" employs his intuition to win ...
Inspirational docu on "The Mozart of Chess"; some bullying.
