If even half of what is presented in this dramatized version of events that led to the birth of the classic block-based video game in America is true, this may still be one of the craziest stories ever told. Taron Egerton stars as Henk Rogers, the US software developer who tried for years to license the game here, facing all kinds of hurdles along the way, including the KGB, greedy backstabbing media moguls, and all kinds of other things too nuts to even imagine. Egerton is great, but the story (via a script by newbie feature scribe Noah Pink) is even better.

4/5 stars
