About the Movie

Featuring a tour-de-force performance from Shia LaBeouf as tennis great John McEnroe, the kinetic sports thriller BORG VS. MCENROE is based on the dramatic true events behind one of the sport's most famous rivalries. At the historic 1980 Wimbledon Championships, rising American star McEnroe sets his sights on dethroning reigning champion Björn Borg, sparking an unprecedented media frenzy in the tennis world. At the center of the hype, two legendary tennis icons' with polar opposite personas and approaches to the game; McEnroe, infamous for his brash, ferocious energy on the court and his equally spectacular, expletive-fueled tantrums, versus Borg's coolly composed, elegant style of play which complements his unflappable public demeanor. However, both men are hiding deep anxieties, locked in battle with their inner demons. On the court, each athlete brings his immense talents -- and handicaps -- to bear in one of the most suspenseful events in sports history.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: An engaging feature-length response to the trivia question "Who won the Wimbledon men's singles title in 1980?" – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Apr 11, 2018

Fresh: The movie's biggest revelation - at least it was a revelation to me - is just how alike these two men were beneath their outward personas. – Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly, Apr 12, 2018

Fresh: Recreation of a classic 1980 tennis showdown at Wimbledon is helped by stellar acting - and gives its formerly tempestuous star Shia LaBeouf a perfect comeback role. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Apr 13, 2018

Rotten: The film - which is nowhere near as interesting as LaBeouf's performance - is hopelessly reductive about its subjects' psychology even as it mocks the press of 1980 for being reductive about its subjects' psychology. – Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice, Apr 11, 2018

Amazing Story great film

Great video for the whole family! Amazing acting amazing camera work

Great Movie

Wonderfully filmed sports drama, as this is a Swedish film, it is not as upbeat "Hollywood style" as other productions in this genre, but this is actually rather refreshing and not less powerful. The acting is superb and the Björn Borg actor is a spitting image of the real guy. A great character study on two of the worlds best tennis players interesting and entertaining beyond the sport.

Worth it.

Awesome sports movie brought to life. Best tennis movie I’ve seen.
