Rush. Yes, that is a right name to the movie filled with pure adrenaline rush. It sure gave me some goosebumps because this is the first movie that I watched at a theatre in the United States!
Every race sequence from how the drivers prepare, from the busy pit-stops and how each F1 driver is mad to accelerate around every corner of the track.
So, about this movie, this movie is not about F1 races and neither is about all the technicalities in an F1 race but a very few is shown during some race sequences. This sports-drama movie is purely about the rivalry that was between two legendary F1 drivers – Niki Lauda and James Hunt during the 1976 F1 season- which goes back to the formula three days in 1970.
Daniel Bruhl as Lauda is so amazing in every frame that the calculative mindset of Lauda is depicted with perfection; Chris Hemsworth is at his charming best and his face shows the thrust that Hunt puts on the acceleration of the cars. The dramatic scenes at the hospital with multiple treatments being done in Lauda shows us the determination that the Austrian had. The movie engages us till the end for the final decision taken by Lauda, who makes a comeback in a very short span of time after a major accident!
Rush. Everyone’s driven by something. Reminds me of a life question is “What drives you….”
I’d generously give it a rating of 8.5/10. How much would you?
