Borg Vs. McEnroe kind of follows the same format as Battle of the Sexes (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/dvd's-blu-rays/battle-of-the-sexes-(2017)/msg41516/#msg41516) in how they go about telling another iconic Tennis Match. Where Sexes failed, Borg V Mac get's it right due in large part to a compelling backstory told in flashbacks. On the surface, you automatically think that this movie is about McEnroe. It's not. This is all about Borg and the lengths he goes to to become the best player in the world. Mac is more or less a side character here. I love how they set up and then ultimately play out the match. If you don't have any idea of who wins, you will absolutely be on pins and needles the entire time, which I was because I totally forgot who won in the end. So, that was kind of cool to not remember the outcome and get to experience this match again. With that said, the movie isn't perfect, but it's definitely worth a Rent.
