Le Mans needs to be rediscovered so that it can be hopefully embraced as one of star Steve McQueen's finest hours.

Audience Reviews for Le Mans

A racing movie made purely for racing enthusiasts. Some great racing footage wrapped around what is a very weak plot.

Your enjoyment of it will depend on your love for racing as there's very little else.

Cars, Romance and Testosterone. Great use of stock footage. I really like this McQueen movie. I wouldn't be surprised if Hollywood remakes it... I'm sure this thought isn't that far fetched
