Rush comepletely took me by surprise. While I was expecting something unique from such a talented director in Ron Howard, this film was more than just a great movie. Its exhilirating racing sequences are edited perfectly without one fault or one minor error. They interwine with flashbacks in smooth transtions and add an unprecedented amount of detail and emotion to a sports scene. Both Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl provide incredibly strong and memorizing performances, both incaptivating their respective characters and making them the real focus of the film. While the film strives in creating an immaculately real story and rivalry between the two I feel personally that Niki Lauda was in some ways and in some scenes portrayed as a sort of antagonist to James Hunt and do not feel the correct balance of each characters side of the story was shown. But in saying this both Hunts and Lauda's stories come with a massive emotional punch which was a complete surprise and ground breaking within a sports biopic. Adding to the strong editing, the creative use of sound and visuals are also brilliant and emphasise the danger and reality of the sport and the film. Rush is one of 2013's greatest films and from what I have seen possibly the best Sports Biopic made. It's beautifuly vivid visuals and story overcome some of the films minor faults, presenting a masterpiece. Ron Howard has given us a very, very, very good film.
