The movie "Revolver" has a scene with a chess game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eI1oSkX-Zag
Is the game plausible?

The scenes we see in the movie are not completely coherent, some of the things we see are in the wrong order, and the initial chessboard seems to come from the same game, but it is not completely consistent with what happens later. Anyway, the combination they play, with the checkmate, looks like this. Of course the combination is quite simple, and it does not match with the idea they want to give in the movie (the two people are supposed to be tournament players, as we see from the scenes with the chess clocks), so for them this combination would be trivial, and the suspence we see in the last three moves is quite unjustified.
