This is definitely a top notch film no doubt. The steelbook is as it should be no doubt. The two sides of this story are how quickly you may give your all & praised for it. & when they are done with you it's a long way down, the dead fall that is. He was a brilliant mind (with his flaws no doubt. But with saying that always the secret services are afraid that enemies may take advantage of some weaknesses & obviously loose LIPS SINK SHIP'S). That being a common term used during WW2. B.C. Proves once again that He is a great actor without a doubt. The cast also is amazing with great Brit Actors all around. One for the collection indeed arrived in tip top shape!.
Awsome, we could say perfect drama with some humour! The best movie of 2015 with amazing performances from (almost) the all cast! :) The packing and dlivery date was acceptable, good as always. This was my second order, but I am still satisfied with Zavvi! :)
Firstly a great steelbook case with good images on it. Secondly and more importantly the film is superb. A great story with I think is a heart breaking end. But what a story and one I could watch over and over. I'd recommend it.
This is a great film if you do not know the story of Alan Turing then you need to watch this film. There are some amazing scenes and a brilliant ending which puts everything into perspective. However the film has its weak spots one to many flashbacks means it drags a bit and also some of the supporting performances are not up to scratch But overall a brilliant film about a brilliant man
Great film that helped to end the war. Good acting by all.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Imitation Game, although it is a work of fiction and historical accuracy isn't a strong point of the film. The colour palette seems a little odd, you might argue it's been affected by the current fashion for teal and orange or perhaps it was a deliberate attempt to create a 40's wartime feel to the film. The steelbook isn't great; there's no embossing/debossing - although you could argue it isn't needed. The image quality and finish are unremarkable. If you must have a steelbook of this movie then it's an obvious buy, if you can live without the steelbook the regular blu ray is a better choice in my opinion.
is a very good film,you never miss that,must see and must buy
Highly recommendable steelbook and movie. The movie is brilliantly acted by all, epecially Benedict Cumberbatch, who really gives it his all. The steelbook looks stunning, although it is a little on the darker side.
Great movie and a true story that I never knew about. Highly recommend adding to your collection of steelbooks.
The steelbook has a nice design, and it arrived undamaged ! Awesome !
The delivery and package wrapping was excelent. The online purchases is easy to do. Thank you for the great service Regards, Laurens
What an incredible movie !!! And What the human bullshit could do to an amazing man who save a lot of people during WW2 Il love that movie and the characters Benedict Kumberbatch is just incredible in this movie and he deserve an oscar for best actor The Steelbook is a very great edition for that amazing movie Thanks ZAVVI
Really nice looking steelbook and keeps in with the theme of the movie. Well done zavvi for coming up with a really nice art work
This is a brilliant film but unfortunately the steel book is lacking in the extras you get with the standard BluRay, which is disappointing.
excellent art work on steelbook,disc quality sound and vision also excellent.
This is the best film I've seen yet in 2015. Had to own it on blu ray, and a nice steelbook makes it better! A-rated and a must have
I purchased this steel book because I wanted a special copy of a special film. I saw this film in London at the London Film Festival and I was blown away both by the film and the performance of the cast especially Mr Cumberbatch as Alan Turing. I knew little of Turing before the film and left the cinema upset and blazing mad at the treatment this man, this genius, this war hero received at the very hands of the people his genius helped save. I also wanted to head straight back in and watch it again. I had to wait for general release before I could go and see it again. Which I did, twice. This is the first film I have seen in a long time that had the whole audience laughing, clapping and crying. It is a brilliant script full of humour as well as drama and tragedy. Things have been altered in the film as is always the case in these sort of projects. Events condensed facts simplified to make sense and points added for dramatic impact. But overall a lovely tribute to a man who could have given the world so much more if they had only been able to see past his differences. Everyone should give this film a watch. Then research more about Alan Turing and his story as well as the work carried out at Bletchley. The Steel book is nice but not outstanding, pretty basic and lacks the wow factor. Pity Studio Canal only relesed the deleted scenes on the itunes copy though. But there are only two of them so I can live without them. So film excellent. Steelbook could do better.
A very witty, well filmed, clever semi-docudrama giving a insight into what actually happened in the war. Touching and very well made, thoroughly enjoyed it!
This steelbook could have been something really nice, but instead it's rather lackluster. There's no finish or embossing/debossing, which doesn't help bring out the image, but the biggest problem is that the image itself is different from the promotional art. The image the steelbook is a zoomed in version, which messes with the framing of the image, moving the overhanging light off the cover completely and is now on top of the case. It's a small change, but it really throws off the composition and it just all look a little lost. Recommended for buying when the price drops, but not for full price.
It was a very good movie and interesting to see what went into the breaking of the German Enigma machine. Also a bit of an eye opener about how far the UK has come with regard to gay rights in a little over 2 generations - some younger people might want to see this to see what being gay used to be like not that long ago
