Director: Ron Howard
Stars: Daniel Brühl, Chris Hemsworth, Olivia Wilde
In the mid-1970s, charismatic English playboy James Hunt and Austrian perfectionist Niki Lauda share an intense rivalry in Formula 1 racing. Driving vehicles that are little more than gas-filled, rolling bombs, Hunt and Lauda burn up the track, all the while pushing themselves to the breaking point of physical and mental endurance. Meanwhile, the women in their lives can only watch as both drivers risk death with every lap.
I am not a fan of racing at all. I do not even know the difference between them all, but I can say that this was a good movie despite all of that. I had never even heard James Hunt or Niki Lauda at all. All of the information from this movie was all new to me.
Chris Hemsworth was good in the role, but it is one of those roles that I think anyone could play. They would just need to look like the person. It is not a difficult role. It was not very emotional. The rest of the cast was fine. I had no problem with them at all. They were good in their roles.
The look of the movie was spot on for the 70's. You had the cars and the clothes. That is all you really needed to set the look and mood for the movie. The interior of the homes added a nice touch to seal the look of the 70's for the movie. You felt like you were in that time period more.
This was a really entertaining movie, even though I was not that interested in the subject at all. The creation of the movie and the direction made you pay attention to the movie and care about the characters in the movie. That was not too hard since they were real people.
This is a movie worth watching. It was really good to sit through this movie. If you have not seen this one yet, you may want to get it a chance. You may really like it. Enjoy.
