An incredibly good sports drama about the rivalry
between Formula One's James Hunt & Niki Lauda during the early 1970's.
The film follows the men from early in their
careers on semi-professional race circuits and culminates in the 1976 Formula One season, where the two men are in a constant duel to capture the World Championship.
Even if your interest in motor racing is
slim-to-none, the film features enough high octane thrills and drama to justify it, with two superb performances from Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Brühl.
A return to director Ron Howard's best following a
near decade of some rather poor filmmaking decisions.
