Who either produces or shows a movie where there are many gaps which are a few minutes long and happens throughout the movie where the viewer can see some drama is going on within the discussion but it's in a foreign language? I'm not sure if the movie was produced that way or Netflix was too lazy or just didn't have the capability to offer subtitles during the long dialogs in Russian. It left me angry, frustrated, and bored saying to myself, "finish already so I can get back into this movie". I'm not talking about a few words or even a sentence in Russian. There were dialogs important to the story which I had to sit frustrated because I knew what was being said was important to the story. I would have probably given this move 8 stars but I can give stars for much of a movie I could not understand.

The most frustrating move I've ever seenReviewed byssfeilesVote: 3/10
Reminded me of a decent Sunday night TV drama. I thought Pullman was excellent and the plot was nicely handled.
It would have helped me with clarification whether this had a basis in real life and having found out it was fiction it made me think some of the plot could have had a bit more suspense.
I did not really buy into the relationship of the US spy team. I got that one of them was a mole but I was neither intrigued nor invested in who it was.
Having said that, its an enjoyable film and worth a watch.
Decent enough thriller but as a previous review flagged their was some really irritating flaws in the parts of the film featuring chess. Firstly the idea of a player coming out of a 20 year retirement to challenge a top rated grandmaster is absurd. It is the equivalent of Mike Tyson trying to take on a fully trained Detoney Wilder on a days notice. Also the scene where Bill Pullman tries to remember the first game he mentions sacrificing a knight for a bishop? That is not a sacrifice it is an exchange, both are worth roughly the same although one can be better than the other depending on the position. I know it sounds really pedantic and nerdy but if you are going to make a film featuring a chess player as a main character at least pay for some basic research and make an effort to get it part right. Change sacrifice knight for bishop to rook for bishop and it us correct how hard is that??
