Yes, this is the film that started the video game and as you watch it you can see why they made it into a video game. It definitely works more for a game then a movie. This was Ron Howard’s first time directing and that wasn’t so bad. It was the script which he wrote with his father that didn’t work but you have to start somewhere. If you’re a fan of the game you might want to catch this film but if you want to watch a good film watch A Beautiful Mind.
