Rush

Rush revisits one of the most thrilling seasons in Formula One history: that of 1976, when two young drivers contested fiercely on and off the track. Austria's Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl), the reigning world champion, was cool, detached, methodical; a kind of Teutonic metronome, perceived as being ruthlessly efficient but colorless. Across the grid from him was Englishman James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth), the swashbuckling, hard-living, carousing blond playboy who looked every inch the part. What turned their duel into the stuff of legend was the ferocity with which they competed — literally to the edge of death.

This film has received 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

    I thought the movie was entertaining overall. But, it would have been more interesting if they had developed the back stories and characters more. Some of the dialogue was a little too artificial in its obvious delivery of an explanation to the audience. The production values were good though, including the editing and sound, and some of the character development in the latter part of the film helped bring it to a more meaningful conclusion.

    I disliked the first half of the film. I thought all the characters were uninteresting and underdeveloped. The rivalry between the two main characters seemed childish and tiring and was wearing on me to the point I thought I would walk out of the film (especially if I had to see another screen shot of them looking at each other before a race). However, the film picked up at the second half and had more substance. Overall, I ended up liking it, but have seen much better writing based on flawed characters. Maybe Paul Thomas Anderson should have written this screenplay.

    I thought the movie was solidly delivered. Great cinematography and enjoyable overall though not that thought-provoking

    Who has a bunch of orange-cones, so we can lay out an F1 mini-course all over the parking lot and over to Lynwood Grille?

    Well, the tomatometer is down to 88% now, haha, but I still think it will be an enjoyable film! :-)

      Welcome and look forward to meeting you as well. We will be gathered on the right side of the theater in the "lounge" area, where there are several chairs, before show time.
