Turing deserves better than to be presented as a nutty professor, a tweed-jacketed Rain Man, his own code so easily cracked that any old hack film-makers can have a go.

Besides being an offensive disservice to the sadly not singular tragedy of Alan Turing, how is The Imitation Game? Well, it has good performances.

Such an astonishing, crucial life as Turing's deserves a more courageous, inventive film. Not this opportunistic, King's Speech -like Oscar grab.

It's a fascinating story, as well as one of those stories that needs to be told, over and over if necessary, but I just wish it had been told here with a little more guts and flair.

The Imitation Game is a film about a human calculator which feels... a little too calculated.
