About this movie

Two­-time Academy Award-winner Ron Howard delivers the exhilarating true story of a legendary rivalry that rocked the world. During the sexy and glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing, two drivers emerged as the best: gifted English playboy James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth, The Avengers) and his methodical, brilliant Austrian opponent, Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl, Inglourious Basterds). As they mercilessly clash on and off the Grand Prix racetrack, the two drivers push themselves to the breaking point of physical and psychological endurance, where there's no shortcut to victory and no margin for error. Co-­starring Olivia Wilde (TRON: Legacy), it's the heart-racing, epic, action­-drama that critics are calling "one of the best movies of this, or any, year" (Pete Hammond, Movieline).

Daniel bruhl was so fabulous in this I thought I WAS looking at Niki Lauda! Ive been so looking forwards to this film and it did not let down! Howard did an amazing job directing AMAZING race sequences and private collectors made available the actual real cars from the era! I know its trite but i laughed and i cried and i loved it! ( Miss you Senna) TY to everyone involved in the making of this film! BRILLIANT (ALSO - SCHUMACHER , COME ON MAN! FIND THE GAP AND PULL THROUGH THIS! WE ARE WITH YOU)

I thought this was a great depiction of the battle between Hunt and Lauda, but if you are looking for a majority of racing action this is not the movie. Still very entertaining.

Very well acted. A story about people, who just happen to be F1 racers. Little is spent on the actual races, and far more on the feud. Would have had more tension if there was more attention in the races themselves. All the same, great movie.
