We all knew how amazingly talented Benedict Cumberbatch, the "Sherlock" actor was. However, recently he has just taken things to the next level.
In a recent interview to MTV, while promoting his upcoming movie "The Imitation Game", Cumberbatch was challenged to a different kind of imitation game and the "Fifth Estate" star did not disappoint.
Cumberbatch imitated Sean Connery, Tom Hiddleston, Taylor Swift and even Batman villain Bane! – all in a minute!
Check it out for yourself :
Cumberbatch's latest film "The Imitation Game" is based on the real-life story of the famous mathematician and logician Alan Turning, who helped crack Germany's enigma code during World War II. Turing is later prosecuted by the government for illegal homosexual acts.
The movie has gotten an 8.5 rating on IMDb and 86 percent fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. Critics have also given the movie a big thumbs up. Cumberbtach's performance has been highly appreciated.
Below is Geoffrey Macnab's review of "The Imitation Game" for The Independent.
"Cumberbatch must be in the frame for major awards. His Turing has the same mix of vulnerability and irascibility that Colin Firth brought to the stuttering Bertie in The King's Speech.
He captures the character's intellectual drive while also bringing subtle comic touches to the role - his attempts to ingratiate himself with his colleagues by bringing them apples; when he misreads social signals in the pub; and when he climbs through Joan's window like a clumsy suitor, bringing her puzzles instead of roses.
For all the ingenuity of its structure, the film itself is sometimes sketchy and superficial. What it does do emphatically, though, is make the case for Turing as a very British kind of hero."
