Ice vs Fire

I remember this Winbledon finals like it was last month, what a great mach it was between two iconic tennis players, maybe two of the most unforgettable sportsmen ever. Two men, two opposite personalities, one great match, one thrilling drama well directed by Janus Metz and masterfully played by Sverrir Gudnason and Shia LaBeouf as the opponents, still I have to mention Stellan Skarsgård, the man simply doen't know how to act bad in a movie. After you watch this one you'll go and search for the real game on Youtube, you wont regret it for sure. 8 out of 10

Well don't know what to think.

Actors were great. Really well played. But as I see the movie, it is like they tend to favor Borg. While he did a great job playing tennis, this was suppose to be a movie about them both. McEnroe even mentioned it as being "badly portrait of himself", I don't know what to believe, but for my personal experience, it is a shame that they favored Borg more.

Great in some ways, disappointing in others

This film deserves more attention than it received, and is definitely worth seeing. The first three-quarters of the film is strongest, with a surprisingly deep and engaging portrayal of the psychological struggles faced by both players, but especially Borg. I don't know how accurately any of it reflects the real life characters, but it sure made for a good story. The major letdown is the match itself - to which the whole film builds, but is surprisingly handled in a fairly hasty and anticlimactic way. And it was poorly shot, not giving you a sense of how amazing any of the shotmaking was, or how the players experienced it. TV footage of matches is more tense and exciting than this was. In addition, it's a shame the film lopsidedly focused on Borg. For one thing, it seems like false advertising, given the title and premise of the film. And since both were strong, interesting characters, it would have been more satisfying to see them given equal screen time. However the film ends with a nice post-match scene between Borg and McEnroe.
