I know I'm not with the majority on this but this is a sadly disapponting film.

I really like Stephen Hawking & Benedict Cumberbatch. I've read Jane Hawking's book, Stephen Hawking's brief autobiography, watched the other film and read the reviews for this film which makes me think I should watch this film and I'd like it. I really didn't like it and I'm confused why it's getting so much praise. The continuity is bad, especially regards Hawking's disability, one minute he can barely move and the next he's powering along with his walking sticks. I don't like how Hawking is played at all by the very talented Benedict Cumberbatch it all feels so wrong. If you like Stephen Hawking I'd stick to watching The Theory of Everything, if you like Benedict Cumberbatch just stick to anything else he's ever done but not this.
