Rush Movie Review

Rush (U/A)

Length: - 2 hrs. 2 min.

Rush is a crisp and compelling drama about Formula 1 rival racers. Rush makes you feel that you are actually watching F1 race closely. Consistently engaging and never losing its track is the strength of Rush. It takes you to a thrilling experience of F1 race. Film isn’t just about F1 it’s about the journey of rivals who fights, compete and also become inspiration for each other in order to win the battle. The scenes of the film captures every moment from races, engines and emotions. Film is based on the true events and characters of Nikki Lauda and James Hunt are the real ones from 70’s.

James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) is a playboy and cool character who just takes everything with an ease. Nikki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl) is a serious guy who is so desperate for what he wants to do. Nikki Lauda’s father wants him to join his business and says that Lauda's are supposed to be on the front page this way. But Nikki wants to be on the front page by winning the F1 championship. So, he leaves his father along with his money. James and Nikki after fighting with each other in a race becomes the worthy opponent of each other. Someone says to James that fight between Nikki and you is all everybody want to see. In a race Nikki Lauda met with an accident and gets serious injuries on his head and lungs.

Ron Howard who earlier directed films like “Apollo 13” and “A Beautiful Mind” never takes a single wrong step in this film. How these legends of F1 in 70’s fights so desperately to win. How their personal life is being affected by the same is interestingly conveyed. Daniel Bruhl in the role Nikki Lauda steals the show and his performance is ahrd to take eyes off. Chris Hemsworth is also interesting enough to watch as a social party playboy.

Verdict: - One of the nice sports film which shouldn’t be missed

Ratings:-   4 / 5 Stars

  1. Good review. A bunch of fun, but also very emotionally compelling as well mainly because you care for both characters, pretty equally.
