Magnus Reviews:

I loved this film, it is entertaining and emotional. I found myself fully on Magnus' side by the end of the film; I felt like a sudden avid chess fan! It is a nice movie for all the family. 'Magnus' explores his passion and individuality that leads an audience to totally understand why he is the number 1 chess user worldwide; the movie unfolds adding narrative upon narrative, layer by layer so I, sitting in the audience, was continually surprised. I also learnt a lot about chess but also about drive, passion and obsession. It is by following a linear structure with flashback, that Benjamin Rees, the director, allows us to concentrate and follow his adventure from protegé to his differentiated self; the emotional aspect of the movie is also about his internal adventure from man to man. It is left up to us to emotionally connect to Magnus' journey. We are not told, we see and experience which is the essence of a nice film. 'Magnus' works on so many lvls but overall it is a thrilling adventure about a desire to be the greatest in the World. In fact I wish to see it again. I understand it took 10 years to movie and the Executive Producer is a chess user too. The passion behind the camera is realised in front of it too. The audience at the London Movie Festival bursts into spontaneous applause as the games began to roll. Highly recommended!


I dislike documentaries generally but decided to watch this because of the topics matter. It is a wonderful film! I will probably view it again soon. It was very emotional, in a very positive way. You see how much is at stake for these globe class chess players. The footage of Magnus and his family from early childhood to chess winner was utterly unique. So much better than a movie.


I have followed Magnus Carlsen since he was around 13 years old. Here in Norway we have of course got to know him very well thru the years, he was a man we sort of all watched grow up to become the highest ranked chess user of all time. And the street to the top has been entertaining, thrilling and inspiring.This documentary present us a lot of photos from Magnus youth, all the method back to when he was very young, before he even started testing chess. The documentary is for the most part linear in it's storytelling, and is also very "by the book" in it's presentation. Very tiny fresh is said that I didn't already know. What i hadn't seen much of before was these personal family movie clips, which this documentary shows a lot of. And they are IMO the powerful part of the documentary, followed by narration, mostly done by Magnus father.But here is also the documentary's low point, it's linear storytelling, a storyline which I and most Norwegians already know, i can't but feel it becomes a bit repetitive. It feels like the documentary is a sort of a flat textbook tale that we all know how ends, and what we all know contains.And the documentary is short, it runs at just above 1 hour, and i feel that it shouldn't have ended where it did, and far to several interviews were done with key folks to test and receive a better understanding of what goes on, and why Magnus is such a large deal. The only thing i can think of that resulted in the exclusion of these interviews is that they didn't have the money, and therefor it also feels like this documentary wasn't really taken as seriously as it should. Because i can't trust the director didn't wish this movie to contain interviews with users like Anand and Agdestein, among many others, to further say this story.This documentary should have been a lot more exiting. One thing i would have wanted from it is to hear what another champions felt and learned facing Magnus on the board.I also felt that the super cuts with all the media clips was poorly done, here it seemed like the director now knew he was "only" making a very predictable documentary, basically just showing Magnus from A to B with a tension chess minigame at the end. Almost like he just rushed to the end to present us why he wanted to create this documentary in the first place. To say: Magnus is the greatest chess user in the world.It's just that, we all know this already.I now wanted to see those media clips, and i also wanted to see when those clips where aired, to give us a clear picture on how Magnus progressed, month by month, when he was closing in to the top. And as i already mentioned, i already knew these things from reading the newspapers here in my country, but for viewers anywhere else, this would have helped a lot to the story. But instead these clips are slash and mixed in such a method they become babble and a mess, and this was IMO a mistake.The documentary does however have many nice moments as well. It's just that i feel i don't know Magnus much better actually than i did before i saw it. This might be fully various for folks that don't know much about him of course, but the movie is still a very secure tale said in a secure linear pattern, and moves very carefully in it's presentation.6/10 - decent
