There's some really emotional relationship conflicts and resolutions. It's a heartwarming and wholesome movie. Max Pomeranc is a great actor for the slower scenes. I think a major strength is his great control over his face. Most of the time he has a very cute sheepish look on him and lovely hair.

Formulaic but very well-executed. Apparently not very accurate about tournament chess, and the best fictional chess movie ever made must surely remain the 1925 Russian short comedy Chess Fever. However, Max Pomeranc's lead performance is such a treat to watch that it's hard to care about anything else!

Known as 'Innocent Moves' here in the UK, Max Pomeranc gave a masterful performance as the boy chess prodigy. Interesting to see the point made about the parents having to be kept away from the tournament room. This is what can happen actually. And what of Michael Nirenberg cast as Max's arch enemy, Jonathan Poe? Poor kid, even though given the part of the baddy boy he played his character well. From the position of the pieces at the time Poe was offered a draw, several chess buffs have since pointed out that Poe could've won. Fine film and well acted by all the boy performers.

The main character showed potential as an actor. The chess positions, however, make this film a disaster for the insiders. Sorry about that. But what can you expect?

Aside from Max Pomeranc's engaging and talented presence, I have to mention Hal Scardino's scene where he shuffles out to tell the eager parents at the first big tournament, "it's over" and then ambles back to the game room. "WHO WON??" scream the parents at his retreating little form. A precious look at typical boy behavior.
