Incredibly directed by Ron Howard. I know very little about F1 but was still able to understand and be entertained. Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Brà 1/4el play off each other fantastically to create some amazing drama. Everyone should definitely check this one out.

Great movie. Though it moves a little slow in moments and has a hard time deciding who's the lead protagonist, it's very much redeemed by stylish direction, well-executed race sequences and great performances from its leads.

The script may not offer many surprises especially for those that are familiar with the story, but overall the film is very well-made. The performances are perfect and very well done. The racing scenes are shot very well with a lot of emotion and intensity. Plus the movie is a good character study. Fans of formula 1 racing and non fans alike should enjoy this film.

A great biopic about formula 1 rivals James Hunt and Niki Lauda. The direction is great, specially in the race scenes, which keep you at the edge of your seat, the performances by Brühl and Hemsworth are amazing, and the score by Hans Zimmer is also really good. A great movie overall.

This racing drama works at high levels of adrenaline, telling one of the most fierce battles in the history of Formula 1.
The cast is accurately chosen, which means characters are incredibly realistic, thing that makes this movie a must watch for Formula 1 enthusiasts and fans of the genere.

Rush is a truly thrilling and exciting film based on the 1975 formula 1 season. Brühl and Hemsworth do a terrific job of portraying both Lauda and Hunt respectively. A truly epic season deserves a truly epic blockbuster which is what was almost given. The film provides some truly superb race sequences but the general consensus is that this film is lacking something. Maybe the ending was rather rushed - pardon the pun - but it felt as though there was something missing from this film. That doesn't stop the film being a great and brilliant homage to the 1975 season. Overall, its a great and dramatic watch with some excellent representation of the characters themselves. A must see for any racing or non-racing fans.

Rivalries are born mainly in sports. Some of the great rivalries include Ali and Frazier, Magic vs Bird, Yankees vs red sox's, The rock and stone cold steve Austin, the list goes on and on. One of the great rivalries I never knew about (mainly because I don't watch this sport) was between James Hunt and Niki Lauda in formula one racing. These two were fierce competitors despite being for the most part, polar opposites of each other. Ron Howard beautifully tells the story of these two icons in the racing world.
It's 1970 and the formula one racing world is the battleground for two future legends James Hunt and Niki Lauda. James Hunt is a playboy but one with all the talent in the world. Niki Lauda is a quiet more focus person who knows the workings of a car inside and out and has resources to help him get where he needs to be. Both men however share the love and will to win races. The movie chronicles their battles in the 70's era and of course Lauda's near fatal crash than burned part of his face.
Rush is absolutely incredible. The racing scenes are filmed so intense like. you feel the adrenaline and the rush no pun intended of the races. incredible cinematography so visceral and well shot. the score by hans zimmer is as expected, Phenomenal!!! Ron Howard uses a really unique method of full on telling both sides of their story instead of going from the perspective of someone who witnessed it all or just one side. the writing as well is amazing. I mean these guys couldn't have been more opposities of each other but both had that drive to go hard or go home
Daniel bruhl was excellent as Niki Lauda. Lauda was someone who worked hard but was also smart and found his own way into the higher ranks. He was an asshole but only because he wanted focus and precision with his racing way of life. That same focus really came to his aid after his burn incident. Chris hemsworth was sensational as James Hunt. This is one of the most impressive performances of his career so far. Hunt was a real playboy but had real talent too and surprisingly worked his way up the ladder. But just like any person of this kind they still got hurtles to get passs and he did. Olivia wilde's british accent was spot on. probably one of the best I've heard from an American actress ever. She also did a pretty good job here as well.
The sound design is incredible. you get the real slashing of tires and engine horsepower. the end race is so gripping and you feel the rush no pun intended. this is a pure example of how Ron Howard is one of today's greats next to Spielberg in making epic moments on film. By that point it becomes clear that they both had everything to gain and everything to lose as well. the footage of the real niki and james was a nice add in too
Go check out Rush when you can its hella worth the watch
