Look, I’m sold. Egerton delivers his lines with a kind of manic sincerity, the subtle video game touches are light and funny, and the friendship between inventor Alexey Pajitnov (Nikita Efremov) and Rogers is the kind of “dudes rock” underdog story that I’m here for. The synth production of Europe’s “The Final Countdown”? Genius.

With an earnest, can-do attitude, Taron Egerton stars as Henk Rogers, the video game designer and producer who helped bring the ’80s video game Tetris out of the Soviet Union and into the hands of the world via the GameBoy. Following the beats of a heist thriller, Apple’s Tetris recreates a historic series of events with a kind of flair and drama usually reserved for a spy films.
