It's dedication to it's subject matter makes it one of the most accurate depictions of racing ever seen in a film, but it does sacrifice plot and character development for it's admirable goal. An interesting film but is best seen by racing fans.

McQueen got rid of Sturges and just went buckwild

Realistic filming of the great race with a story to boot. I watched this because my coworker used to race and it was his favorite film.

If you are not a die hard racing fan, then this movie could drag quite a bit for you...but even those who aren't big fans can appreciate the speed and danger that these drivers endured thanks to the fantastic cinematography this almost-documentary provides. The rawness of the action and the sincerity in which the film was made is reason enough to watch it. In the end this film is car porn for big fans of antique sports car racing and a learning experience for those who know little to nothing about motor racing in general.

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

almost all aspects about endurance race are exposed by this film, all the cars, the mighty porsche 917 with its famous gulf color and strip, the ferrari 512 and all the the other gt cars, the drivers, the dangers, and most importantly the grueling 24 hours racing itself. If you are a true motor racing fans or enthusiast, this film is a must to watch. but if you are seeking for a story by this one is nothing but to make you bored.

There will never be a film like this again, a example of a film that don't depend on plot to make a good film, just add atmosphere.

The world's most famous rev-head racing in the world's most famous endurance race - count us in. On paper Le Mans was a cracking idea: Hollywood's hottest star, fresh from The Thomas Crown Affair, showing off his Bullitt trained driving skills in a pseudo-documentary style travelogue of the epic French road race. The execution, however, is similar to watching... well, cars driving around in circles for 24 hours. As a snapshot of a filmmaking era it still fascinates and McQueen is always easy on the eye but the longeurs of the race can't be outrun. Gentlemen, switch off your engines.

The masterpiece was released in 1971. It has a taste of documentaries and never looks like out-of-date.

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

Like its namesake, a manly racing drama.

No dialogue for the first 30+ mins gives an indication of what type of film it is. The Engines do most the talking

There is no dialogue for the first 37 minutes of the movie. How cool is that!! McQueen was definitely the King of Cool. Also, the 24 Hours of Le Mans is the greatest racing spectacle in the world.
