Rush

Overall Rating: 9 out of 10 Based on 1 Review

Set against the glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing in the 1970s, and directed by Ron Howard, Rush tells the true story of the great rivalry between handsome English playboy James Hunt and his methodical, brilliant opponent, Austrian driver Niki Lauda. The story chronicles their distinctly different personal styles on and off the track, their loves and the astonishing 1976 season in which both drivers were willing to risk everything to become world champion in a sport with no margin for error.

    Overall:

    Based on a true story of the competitive relationship between Austrian Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl) and British James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth), Ron Howard creates an action packed movie with all the adrenaline filled excitement of F1 racing. The speed and danger is well depicted throughout the movie in all the races as well as the strange yet respectful relationship between James and Niki. James a womaniser who lived life to the fullest and is the opposite to Niki who was an introvert and totally focussed on winning races. It is interesting to see how two people so opposite were equally great on the track.

    When a devastating accident happens during a race, Nikki is forced to get through so much just to get back on the track. Both Chris and Daniel give great performances throughout the whole movie to not just be believable as competitive drivers but the emotion and pain felt during their lives. It is full of action and filmed well to put the watcher in the thick of the action and edge of the seat wondering if each corner could be their last as they race towards the finish line.
