News & Interviews for Endgame
Critic Reviews for Endgame
Carmen Marron's underdog tale of a Hispanic chess team makes too many predictable moves.
The otherwise congenial film plays itself to a draw because of flat characters and a script that overdoes the melodrama in the service of checking off a series of genre tropes borrowed from sports movies.
There isn't a single surprising development or unforeseen story turn in "Endgame," and yet, as a study in formulaic Screenwriting 101 filmmaking, it's really rather pleasant and sometimes surprisingly moving.
Inspiring, if cheesy, story about chess has tragic moments.
[A] staid but well-intentioned after-school special game movie that's been checkmated by clichés.
