      Audience Member Not as good as Theory of Everything. Cumberbatch does well though. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Cumberbatch sensitively portrays Hawking's early years at Cambridge and the early development of motor neuron disease in a film that places as much weight on the humanity of the characters as much as the incredible science. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member "We are very very small, but we are profoundly capable of very very big things." The combination of BC and BBC is incredible. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member ? ???????? "?????? ?????" ? ???? ????????? ? ???? ??????? ?

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Cumberbatch in much younger years, playing a mostly pre-ALS Stephen Hawking. Moffat interplays the cosmic background radiation discovery of Penzias & Wilson as a intermittent backdrop. The tension between Hawking and Hoyle was portrayed to dramatic effect, but I wonder how they actually were as colleagues. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Cumberbatch was brilliant in this otherwise not-too-interesting biopic of Hawking. It was as if Cumberbatch took on Hawking's mind, passion, brashness, sense of humor, frustration and joys! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Nancy Banks-Smith Guardian Benedict Cumberbatch, who had to unlearn the actor's first lesson - don't bump into the furniture - gave a remarkable performance as Hawking. Feb 26, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
