Borg vs McEnroe

Description
It's the summer of 1980 and Björn Borg (Sverrir Gudnason) is the top tennis player in the world, dominating the sport both on and off the court. A powerful and rigorously disciplined player, there is only one obstacle in his pursuit of a record-breaking fifth Wimbledon championship: the highly talented but ferociously abrasive young American, John McEnroe (a perfectly cast Shia LaBeouf). With three days until the tournament begins, Borg trains religiously in his lavish Monaco home, aided by his coach and mentor Lennart (Stellan Skarsgård) and girlfriend Mariana (Tuva Novotny). But McEnroe's explosive confidence and wrecking-ball persona continue to infiltrate Borg's ice-cool and normally unshakable temperament. With each man the antithesis of the other, both players delve into their formative memories as the climactic tournament draws near and anticipation reaches fever pitch. Visceral and breathlessly tense, the match itself--regarded as one of the greatest of all time--would mark the pinnacle of the 'Fire and Ice' rivalry between Borg and McEnroe; an exhilarating battle of personalities that set the world of tennis alight.

Surprisingly sombre in tone, Metz's debut scripted feature film ambitiously delves into the psychology of these two men, and that of elite sportspeople in general ... Borg's crisis of confidence and McEnroe's arrogance result in two unlikeable leads.

... The film has enough elements to be attractive even to neophytes of the sport. [Full review in Spanish]

What we're left with is a staid little movie that races around the court and rallies itself to exhaustion, a historical drama that enshrines the narrative underpinnings of all great sports stories without doing anything to upend them.

A compelling and concentrated drama that doesn't waste a frame.

It's a sports movie for masochistic, vainglorious athletes.

Though it never justifies the overblown Andre Agassi quote used as its preface ("every match is a life in miniature"), the picture certainly shows how a single match can be made to feel like the world depends on it.

McEnroe's "unsportsmanlike behaviour" is a no-brainer fit for LaBeouf, who attacks the tennis enfant terrible's profanity-filled, racket-throwing antics with gusto.

Both players are fascinating characters in their own right. Even more so once their stridently different temperaments come into play.
