  • Editorial Reviews

    Two-time Academy Award-winner Ron Howard delivers the exhilarating true story of a legendary rivalry that rocked the world. During the sexy and glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing, two drivers emerged as the best: gifted English playboy James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth, The Avengers) and his methodical, brilliant Austrian opponent, Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl, Inglourious Basterds). As they mercilessly clash on and off the Grand Prix racetrack, the two drivers push themselves to the breaking point of physical and psychological endurance, where there’s no shortcut to victory and no margin for error. Co-starring Olivia Wilde (TRON: Legacy), it’s the heart-racing, epic, action-drama that critics are calling “one of the best movies of this, or any, year” (Pete Hammond, Movieline).

    5.0 out of 5 stars Full Circle for Ron Howard September 20, 2013
    Format:DVD
    The first full-length movie Ron Howard ever directed was "Grand Theft Auto." Since then, he has built a storied, award-winning career; now he has come full circle to another auto-racing film. This biography is based on the true story of an Austrian Formula One champion and his British arch rival. I found it thrilling, involving and highly entertaining.

    We see:
    * Daniel Brühl ("Ladies in Lavender") as three-time Formula One champ Niki Lauda, a buttoned-down technocrat, friendless and charmless, but a brilliant analyst who understands all the elements of racing: the track, the engine, the body, the weight, and above all, the competition.
    * Chris Hemsworth ("Thor") as handsome James Hunt, exuding the joie de vivre of international success. He revels in the booze, the drugs and the women that go along with fame and is always the darling of the press because he is so quotable.
    * Olivia Wilde ("The Change-Up") as Suzy Miller, soon to be the famous supermodel Suzy Hunt, who swans into Hunt's life and quickly marries him, much to their mutual regret.
    * Alexandra Maria Lara ("Imagine") is Marlene, who marries Lauda almost on a whim, but who remains in his life as his staunchest friend and ally.

    Howard gives us a soundtrack that shakes the theater as those powerful engines roar into life, but never neglects the dialogue: We hear every single spoken word in a script where much of the fun is what our two rivals say to (and about) each other. Their top-notch competition brings up the game for both, so they come to realize they need each other. Lauda says, "I learn far more from my enemies than from my friends.

    5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Sports Rivalry I Never Heard Of October 3, 2013
    Format:Blu-ray
    I went in to see this movie with absolutely no idea what it was about, other than race cars (I prefer drag racing, Formula 1 is one of those European things I never paid attention to). Now I am obsessed with both Hunt and Lauda...the cinematography is great, the 'feel' of the era is palpable, the racing scenes are exciting, the casting was brilliant...all in all a wonderful suprise. Even if you aren't a racing fan, it's worth a look. And the soundtrack...wonderful!

    5.0 out of 5 stars My only complaint? It was too short. October 3, 2013
    Format:DVD
    I grew up watching Formula 1 but too late to see James Hunt and Niki Lauda fight it out. Doesn't matter because this story was always going to get my attention. In fact rarely have I looked to forward to a film. I was not disappointed.

    I won't go through the premise here. If you're reading this I expect you already know it. I will say that this film travels at a pace akin to the cars it features. There's not a moment to get bored or for the mind to wander. To the contrary. I wanted every scene to be longer, I wanted to spend more time with these people. I was hungry to know them, flaws and all. This is no glossed up little package of hero-worship. Both Hunt and Lauda are as selfish and spiteful as they are inspiring and talented.

    The music is brooding, compelling and exciting by turn. The camera work is intimate and amazing. (You see through Niki's bury eyes, you see from inside helmets and from under and along the cars. You see every shudder they make. You see eyelashes and pores and ruined skin as well as stunning scenery. You struggle to see through the rain. You see through the flames, you see and hear what Lauda saw and head in that fiery minute (and sit glad you can't feel it).

    I wasn't sure how I'd take the most confronting action, the crash and the painful hospital scenes and I admit going into it a little apprehensive. They aren't easy watching but neither are they overdone. It's all very matter-of-fact. Horrible but nothing that can't be pushed through. Not lingered on, not brushed over and I was glad for it. It had to be done that way to understand what Lauda actually overcame.

    While the race action was outstanding the best part, of course, was the interaction between Hunt and Lauda.

    5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best movies I've seen lately October 9, 2013
    By Gil
    Format:Blu-ray
    I don't like writing or reading movie reviews. They have almost zero impact on my decision to see or not see a movie. I usually get recommendations from friends or decide after seeing a promo or by the actors/director etc. Why am I saying this? because this is not a movie review. It's just my opinion as your virtual friend to go see this movie even if you are not a racing fan (which most of us aren't really). Good actors, good story, good action - good movie! one of the best I've seen lately and definitely Oscar material. This is why I go to the movies!

    In many ways Rush was nothing like what I expected. When I think of driving/racing movies I think of The Transporter (2002), Fast Five (2011), Driven (2001) or Drive (2011). While these movies vary wildly in quality (some action movies, a competitive bro flick and a one legit film), they all have VERY exciting driving scenes. These movies also feature some aging bro-mentor meets wildcard rookie moments (Driven), intense stoic Albert Brooks and head stomping scenes (Driven), some serious jump spin kicks bringing Hong Kong cinema to America (The Transporter) and an international pec dance-off between Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel (Fast Five). Sure, there are some heavy moments surrounding the driving scenes in all these movies. But, far to the contrary, Rush's driving scenes were the least exciting scenes of the entire film...and in no way is this to the film's detriment.

    Rush chronicles the ascension of James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth, deflated from his Thor role) and Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl) from their humble Formula 3 beginnings up to the contentious glory of Formula One. Their actions and dialogue, whether to, about or because of one another, illustrate their dependence on each other which subsequently fuels their addiction to competition. Each minute of this movie is every bit a duel as Rocky versus Ivan Drago and they bring out the very best (and the very worst) in each other.

    But this "race car" movie hardly focuses on "action" or "racing" at all. But it is every bit about the intensity "of" the race...and the rush experienced by its competitors. This film is about the relationship and rivalry between of Hunt and Lauda, not the engines behind which they sit.

    Well it is based on the real life events of the 1976 Season andd the rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda, so yeah it is Grand Prix, or to be more exact Formula 1.
