The true enigma was the man who cracked the code.
Based on the real life story of legendary cryptanalyst Alan Turing, the film portrays the nail-biting race against time by Turing and his brilliant team of code-breakers at Britain's top-secret Government Code and Cypher School at Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II.

I REALLY loved this movie. What a great acting from Benedict! I didn't know the movie was about Alan Turning , honestly. Mind blowing for me later.

Imitation? then someone lost that game. The real Turing had nothing to do with the portrayal done by Broomface Cumberbatch. It's like hesaid "meh, let's just make a not funny Sheldon Cooper". And he has been doing the same character everywhere... The movie also fails to portray the real development of the Enigma machine. They show it as the work of just one man everyone thinks he is crazy, when it was the product of several teams with hundreds of people. And most of the key events were just made up.

But at least the movie serves to teach people about the life (or at least the existence) of a great man who was forgotten by history, so that's why I still give it an 8. Also, it never gets boring, it's enjoyable, even if you already know they are making up most of it.

It shouldn't be classified as biopic, but as historical fiction.
