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.

This is an entertaining film, but should be watched in conjunction with the BBC documentary shown on BBC4 – Hunt Vs Lauda: Grand Prix's Greatest Racing Rivals (BBC Official) [DVD]. This is the best motor-racing film I have seen, with regard to the filming of the racing sequences; the characters however are a bit 2-dimensional. The head of the McLaren racing team in the BBC documentary tells us that Lauda and Hunt were quite friendly, and that Lauda used to spend time in their garage, as he spoke fluent English but couldn’t talk to the Ferrari engineers in Italian. The film makes the two out to be enemies, when in fact they appear to have been friendly rivals – a subtlety the film chose not to show. The incident in the film involving Hunt and the journalist, whether true or not, does feel like something that the friendlier Hunt would have done. The BBC programme also manages to make the Japanese GP much more dramatic than the Hollywood film! And the British GP also has much more excitement than the film managed to portray. Chris Hemsworth manages to capture the public schoolboy arrogance of Hunt very well, something that comes over in the BBC film also. To me, the hero of the film appears to be Niki Lauder, intentionally or not; there is the famous quote on the English Civil War, that “the Royalists were romantic but wrong, the Parliamentarians repulsive but right”. Lauda’s professional approach to motor racing was the future of F1; Hunt was just a public schoolboy who was just a gifted amateur.

The Nikki Lauder-James Hunt feud during the 1976 Grand Prix Formula One season is one of the greatest stories in motor racing history with everything you could wish for to make a perfect movie - two strong, remarkable larger than life characters, a horrendous near fatal crash and an against all odds recovery and comeback only six weeks later, driven by a rivalry that comes down to the very last point in the very last minutes of the very last race of the season - and Rush doesn't disappoint. It's the perfect mixture of the perfect script perfectly cast, with look-alikes Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl embodying the real people they play with a keen eye for their verbal and physical idiosyncrasies in remarkably convincing performances - Bruhl in particular has Lauda's uniquely staccato machine-like vocal delivery down pat - but manage to avoid mere surface mimicry to flesh them out as real people. It's to the film's credit that when the final monologue mixes footage of the actors with their real-life counterparts there's no jarring sense of being taken out of the movie.

Peter Morgan's screenplay is exceptional, conveying character and information with impressive economy, explaining both what fuelled their rivalry and how it drove them to excel, only really spelling things out in the final scene between the two drivers and even then making what could have been a maudlin sentimental wrap-up seem believable. It doesn't paper over their flaws either.
