Academy Award-winner Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind) once again teams up with Academy Award-nominated writer Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon) on Rush, a fast-paced and spectacular re-creation of the merciless and legendary 1970s Formula 1 rivalry between English playboy James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth; Thor) and his Austrian opponent, Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl; Inglourious Basterds).
Set against the sexy and glamorous golden age of racing, Rush portrays the exhilarating true story of the charismatic Hunt and the methodically brilliant Lauda, two of the greatest rivals the world of sport has ever witnessed. Taking us into their personal lives and clashes on and off the Grand Prix racetrack, Rush follows the two drivers as they push themselves to the breaking point of physical and psychological endurance, where there is no shortcut to victory and no margin for error.

Ron Howard’s Rush--set in Formula One’s 1970s heyday, when ‘sex was safe and driving was dangerous’--is a gripping story of fire and ice rivalry that makes today’s rights-managed Formula One look as dull as rain. Culminating in the summer of 1976 and filtered through a layer of colour-faded nostalgia, Rush follows the intertwining careers of James Hunt--the English rock ‘n’ roll star of motor racing--and his chief rival Niki Lauda, a prickly newcomer with a head for engineering and a Spartan work ethic. Chris Helmsworth plays Hunt, as sporting a playboy as the late George Best, striding handsomely around Monaco’s sunlit racetrack with an open shirt and a hairfull of shining wind. Bankrolled by aristocratic friends and at ease among the sport’s Riviera set, his career and his popularity are overshadowed when Lauda (made enormously likable by Daniel Brühl) catches the eye of an ambitious Ferrari team on the lookout for a new breed of racing driver. As Hunt drifts though a string of beds, boozers and petty brawls, Lauda patiently racks up the points, spending long nights obsessing over his car and those precious milliseconds that can mean an eternity at the margin. A deadly rivalry will do wonders for your career--and Hunt vs. Lauda erupts into snaking dogfights around the hazardous circuits of Monza, Silverstone, and near-fatally at the Nürburgring. Hunt is more alive to the alluring danger of racing--references to the famously large number of women he’s meant to have slept with are left out--but it’s Lauda who pays the higher price, and the film’s dramatic heart is Lauda’s psychological comeback, despite devastating injuries, as he prepares for a final showdown. --Leo Batchelor

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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
The film tells the 'true' story of the on and off track rivalry between track
legends 'James Hunt' and 'Niki Lauda'
Playboy 'James Hunt' lives his life in the fast-lane, his on-track driving
reflecting his personality.
'Niki Lauda' is knowledgeable about the workings of his rides on the track,
his actions on the race track both deliberate and methodical.
The film follows both drivers lives on and off the track, the rivalry between
the two almost certainly led to 'Niki Lauda's' near-fatal crash in the German
His courage returning to the track the same season was driven by the
determination to try and stop his rival claiming the championship.
I think possibly if but eventually they had a mutual respect for each other.
The film is without question both exciting and intense, it will keep you on
the edge of your seat throughout.
Great casting....'Chris Hemsworth' as 'James Hunt' and 'Daniel Bru'hl' as
It's a brilliant movie that warrants it's acclaim, quite simply 'A MUST SEE'
Great visual content and superb sound quality on board (Blu-Ray)
Special features :
*The real story of Rush.
