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.

Although much of the film is a little over-dramatised, you have to accept that is what makes a great motion picture.

The story is compelling and the dialogue generally well written. The effects are breathtaking in their realism and the main characters very well cast and believable, Lauda more so than Hunt. I'm not sure that their rivalry was quite as dramatic as portrayed, but hey, that is cinema for you.

The film short-cut some of the drama of the 1976 British Grand Prix, which could almost have been made into a movie itself. In reality, Hunt was involved in a crash, and was told that he couldn't restart the race because he didn't complete the lap. People power allowed him to restart after the crowd started chanting and Hunt eventually won, only to be disqualified on appeal a few months later. I know because I was there at Brands Hatch on that day. In terms of motor racing it was a very messy season.

The scenes of Lauda's medical treatment were almost too painful to watch and it illustrates some of the torment he had to endure during his amazing recovery. Very moving scenes. The man is a legend.

A great film and Ron Howard can be justly proud of everyone involved. It brings back the atmosphere of F1 racing in the 1970s and tells a great story of two modern gladiators.

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.

If you have watched this you already know that its about the rivalry/friendship of James Hunt and Niki Lauda.These days I am not the greatest fan of Formula one,not many nice personalities and boring racing.As a child of the seventies I remember Formula 1 as a very different ball game,recalling many horrific crashes,safety didnt exist back then.
This is a very good film of the 1976 season that I really enjoyed,one or two liberties have been taken ie James Hunt punching the news reporter but acting/story is great.There are a few clips of James Hunt at the end of the film which actually brought a tear to my eye when I saw it at the cinema.
Have missed a star out on the review because of the extras,a film like this could have been treated a lot better in this department.However,released on the same day as this was the recent BBC documentary Hunt vs Lauda which is a good companion dvd to this film priced at £4-99 at HMV.I was going to treat myself to the steelbook edition but extras on that were the same as the standard blu ray
