While it has its moments of sentimentality, the film as a whole is rather shallow and fails to capture the soul of either man.

This thrilling drama is no more for petrol-heads only than Titanic is solely of interest to historic ship enthusiasts.

Nearly as narratively compelling as it is viscerally thrilling, "Rush" is Howard's most efficient film since "Apollo 13."

Thuddingly obvious and proud of it, Rush is a slick, breakneck entertainment.

"Rush" does for Racing what "Rocky" did for Boxing.

Howard's good sense on Rush is to repeat his Frost/Nixon success by surrounding himself with superior writing and acting talent

Rush is pure 'print the myth' stuff -- but since both its heroes really are myths, it gets away with it, with more grace and vigor than you might expect.

One of the best looking and sounding films of the year on top of being one of the most exciting.

Hemsworth and Bruhl quickly develop a rapport, and even though they don't share much screen time together their relationship as Lauda and Hunt is convincing, funny, cool, and often emotional, and the same goes for the rest of Howard's [movie].

This is still an exciting story about competition, but without that stirring moment of humanity that helps sports movies win over the audience, Rush comes up a lap short.

December 31, 2013
It's a duel of dualism, with audiences leaning into the corners to decide whether to ally themselves with Hunt's hedonism or Lauda's hard-headedness. Howard's triumph is that the choice is never an easy one.

Morgan's talent for dramatizing recent history remains unimpaired, the race scenes are harrowingly exciting, and Howard gets fine performances from all, especially Brühl in a showcase breakout role.

An entertaining movie with two solid performances that only occasionally stalls because of its sometimes heavy-handed treatment of Hunt and Lauda's differences.

Considering the subject matter, Rush delivers the expected visceral jolts; what's surprising is how endearing it is, even when its two protagonists are behaving like little more than boys with very fast toys.

...a satisfying biopic that gets the job done efficiently and without much fanfare

Howard and Morgan call the movie Rush, and that's pretty much what it delivers, to no greater purpose than one of those five-hour energy shots you can buy at a deli counter, but certainly with no less of a kick.

Even if you don't know your Formula One from Baby Formula, director Ron Howard has fashioned a powerful drama that will thrill even novices to the sport.

Contains plenty of hairpin curves, but its most welcome twist is the way it reverses expectations in its presentations of the rival drivers, Hunt and Lauda.
