The rivalry between James Hunt and Nikki Lauda though of comparatively short duration, was nevertheless one of the greatest rivalries in sporting history. The stakes were huge: life, death, the world championship.

Even though I did not follow Formula 1 racing then or ever, I clearly remember when this rivalry went global with badly burned reigning Formula One world champion Nikki Lauda being pulled out of a burning car at a grand prix, by other drivers. Almost dead from his injuries, it looked like his season if not his career was over.

I also clearly remember watching the charismatic James Hunt being interviewed about the subject. Considerably behind Lauda on points in the world championship, his act of getting out of the car to help rescue Lauda could have potentially ruined his own ambitions to become world champion. Truly, this is one of the most remarkable sporting rivalries of all time.

So, it was with more than a little anticipation that I looked forward to watching Ron Howard's take on these events done with the cooperation of Nikki Lauda. James Hunt sadly died of a heart attack in 1993 at age 45.

If you are like me, you do not have to be a big racing fan to enjoy this. Everyone understands we live in a world of rivalry and competition, and Ron Howard does an admirable job in this movie in crafting one of the most memorable movies of the year.

While I was one of the few people not very impressed with the movie Thor, there is no doubt in watching this movie that Chris Hemsworth does an awesome job as James Hunt, easily matching the charisma of the great character, who was both a charmer and a legendary womanizer, and that Hemsworth is a great star. I consider this to be his best role to date.

To any F1 fan that didn't get the chance to watch this great motion spectacular at the cinema i honestly feel sorry for you. You will never realise the true "blow away" nature of this film on the big screen aided by full surround sound audio. As a huge F1 fan i was lucky enough to take my girlfriend to see the film on release day, now she isn't the biggest F1 fan but even she liked the gripping nature of wheel to wheel action and realistic historical accuracy that director Ron Howard has attained, mainly due to the input that many people had given that were around at the time such as Nikki Lauda for example.

I have to compliment the two main actors who portrayed Lauda (Daniel Brühl) and James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth), not only do they resemble the two they are taking off remarkably well but they evidently did a lot of research regarding both of these two greats as you could easily mistake them both for the real thing. Hemsworth's portrayal of Hunt as a playboy who wants fame and Brühl's of Lauda as a man who almost has a machine like mentality to racing could not be better acted. The script is thoroughly enjoyable and has a good blend of racing, relationships, sex and fright although the main rivalry between the two drivers has been exaggerated beyond what it was in reality but that's to be expected to give the film a more gripping story. For those that need a little more background the film is based around the 1976 F1 Season but naturally does have some background based on what happened before and then after that period.

As for this specific product, You get a very nice Steel case matching the whole RUSH theme and inside you have the Blu-ray disk and also a copy of the film on DVD which means you'll still be able to watch it pretty much wherever you go.

Had big expectations for this film, and it was good, and seemed to reflect the main dirvers very well. As I was at Brands Hatch in 1976 for the big race between Hunt and Lauda it brough back lots of memories. If you are of a certain age then you will keep saying "I remember that!" all through the film much to the annoyance of your younger viewers....

Wonderful film, well written and photographed. As true to real life as any "film" can be after the Hollywood influence has had its bit added. A film for race fans and those who are not F.1 fans

Really good film, well written and direction, good racing shoots. Acted well by all. did enjoy the brief racing at the Crystal Palace circuit because as a nine year old child me and my mates used to go up to the park and watch the races there, sadly kids wouldn't be allowed to do that now. too much newspaper driven paranoia.

Buy it, Watch it, Enjoy it!

A cracking film. Although it is not necessarily completely historically accurate as has been advised by some other reviewers and I agree with them on this point with the fact that actually both Hunt and Lauda didn't want to race at Germany in August 1976.

However, the performances of Chris Hemsworth as James Hunt and particularly Daniel Bruhl is Niki Lauda are sensational, with both actors accents spot on and personality traits also bang on the money (Lauda was a great driver but also a tactician who was disliked by even his teammates and Hunt is a womanising, alcoholic but funny personality who was very popular).

The characters hold the film together but what makes this a special film is the view from inside the drivers helmet, inside the car cockpit and brilliantly close to the action, the cinematographer of "Slumdog Millionaire" and this Anthony Dod Mantle has done the impossible and made us get an idea of what it feels like to drive an F1 car without actually doing it obviously.

This is director Ron Howard's best film since Apollo 13. Although it is brilliant, it is not quite the "Senna" (2010) documentary in terms of content. Stylish, great thrill ride though and above all else, fun.
