Missing magic

I have to say that the team did a great job of reviewing thousands of minutes of John McEnroe game footage shot for coaching analysis purposes and making a movie of it. That said, this is the sort of thing I'd enjoy watching on tv on a lazy Saturday afternoon perhaps but when it was presented as a movie, in a cinema, about one of tennis's game changers and precocious characters, it was disappointing. I've read the glowing critics reviews and have to say these people must be devotees of the great man to be so entranced by this doco. I wanted so much more than this was ever able to deliver, given its origins. To be fair, I didn't read the reviews or the synopsis in enough detail I guess to realize what I was in for. I fell for the poster and the log line and my own wish for the inside story rather than what this really was. It's a love letter from a coaching analyst that few outside that narrow realm will really get into. It's as French as a Citroen. The film celebrates his uniqueness, his unpredictability. But I wish it was a lot more entertaining and insightful than I found it to be.
