Wasn't that keen on watching this but I was pretty shocked by how much I ended up enjoying it. I didn't really know much about their rivalry or tennis in these times so I found the whole character drama aspect side of it pretty interesting and then the final Wimbledon final act was really tense for me because I had no idea how it was going to end. The ending was really heartwarming too finding out that they went on to be such good friends in their later life.

Both actors did a good job too. I've always liked Shia LaBeouf and he was definitely my highlight in this because McEnroe seemed to be such a fun character in real life. I couldn't believe how much Sverrir Gudnason looked like Borg in real life too once I saw the real pictures at the end ohmy.gif

I think the director have done this very well based on the rivalry and that classic 1980 Wimbledon final. Shia plays John McEnroe very well. And also Gudnason who plays Borg.

Added to the watchlist. I was born in 87 so don't know much about the rivalry but I enjoy tennis and it's always nice seeing Shai in a movie when he's not making a fool of himself in public biggrin.gif .
