  • [Ford v Ferrari] may relish in the high life, but its final moments feel devastatingly hollow.

    December 6, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Ford v Ferrari is a little too long; some scenes leave unnecessary skidmark trails. But the movie still has amiable style and energy to spare. It's fast but never furious.

  • Think Iron Man and Captain America, only it's a (mostly) true story and what's at stake is not the fate of the universe, nor even an auto race, but the glorious, endless pursuit of perfection.

  • It's a far from perfect film, but a richly entertaining one, with a twist that only devoted petrolheads will know is coming.

  • There's still lots to enjoy about the film, which provides us with two wonderful lead performances, exciting speed races, and car executives wearing some of the most beautifully tailored suits this side of Mad Men.

    November 18, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Ford v Ferrari takes the straightforward ethos of car racing-where the winner is whoever is the fastest-and lays bare the egotism and greed required for such a triumph.

Audience Reviews for Ford v Ferrari

    Based on a fascinating true story, Ford v Ferrari is a compelling period drama from director James Mangold. When Enzo Ferrari insults Henry Ford II, Ford hires American car designer Carroll Shelby and driver Ken Miles to develop a race car to defeat Ferrari and win the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Starring Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Jon Bernthal, Josh Lucas, and Caitriona Balfe, the film has a good cast that delivers some strong performances. And the script is especially well-written, making it easy to follow the car and racing jargon. Also, the racing scenes are incredibly exciting and kinetic. Ford v Ferrari is a captivating film about determination and the strength of the human spirit.

    Excellent. Overwhelming. And I liked that they kept it real AFAP. Matt Damon and Christian Bale were undoubtedly incredible. The moment I liked the most was when Henry II starts crying after Matt Damon's character gives him a ride. A phenomenal moment captured on camera.

    I think Ford v Ferrari suffers from mismarketing. I don't mean that it was poorly marketed, and that the trailers made it look bad or anything. Just that it was marketed inaccurately. When I was keeping myself abreast of this project, it seemed very much that the insinuation was that the movie would be a battle between Bale's and Damon's respective characters. That this would essentially be the run-through of the whole film, and the climax would feature one emerging victorious over the other. In actual fact, the opposite is true. Ford v Ferrari is largely about the friendship and partnership of those two characters. An occasionally rugged, and one occasion even violent friendship, but a friendship nonetheless. Even the title is misleading. I suppose Ford does v Ferrari at a couple of points over the movie's runtime, but it's not what Ford v Ferrari is about. In fact, Ferrari barely features in the movie at all. Here's the kicker though: I actually liked what this thing ended up being, more than I think I would have enjoyed a movie that really did revolve around Bale actually versing Damon, or one about Ford actually versing Ferrari.

    Christian Bale continues to prove that he is one of the best actors of this era, and this film is another example of it. Damon is good, but Bale carries this film much like his character carries his racing team. The story is very interesting, maybe better titled "Shelby v. Ford" rather than "Ford v. Ferrari" but a story worth hearing about, especially if you are not familiar with it already.
