Product Description

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.

From Amazon.co.uk

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

As a kid we had a few sports 70s "Superstars", Geoff Capes, Kevin Keegan, Ali, Bjorn Borg and James Hunt.

James Hunt was just a man's man and a woman's dream - for as long as he could be bothered.

The film starts with a typical Hunt moment and it's only when they start to show Lauda's back story as well that you realise this is not just about one man, and also as it turns out - apparently because Morgan wrote his screenplay to be filmed as cheaply as possible - this is not really about the racing.

In truth the two were actually much closer than the films perhaps shows, and there is the odd poetic licence, but Lauda himself was stunned at the portrayal of himself and pronounced the film 'accurate' and something he wished Hunt could have seen.

Highly charged, but character driven, the film is literally filmed cleverly and intuitively and the acting by Chris Hemsworth as Hunt and Daniel Brühl (he was the sniper in the film IN the film of Inglorius Basterds) as Lauda is incredibly convincing. Great supporting cast and a simple utter must watch for anyone into motorsports but also for anyone just interested in a good human story.

Blu Ray picture quality is A1 and deep rumbling sound that leaves you breathless. RUSH to get yours!

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.

Format: Blu-ray
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.

I was young when James Hunt won the Formula One World Championship in 1976 but it was still very memorable.

Rush is an excellent movie and beautifully, you might say perfectly, captures the characters of James Hunt and Niki Lauda, their rivarly, the essence of the 70s and the thrill of Formula One racing at that time.

Chris Hemsworth impressed me greatly as he really is James Hunt's playboy persona and Daniel Bruhl practically channels Niki Lauda's character. My favourite acress, Olivia Wilde, also stars as Hunt's wife. The F1 cars and races offer thrills and excitement; the rivarly between the methodical Lauda and 'rock star' Hunt is delicious. One of, if not my absolute favourite film of 2013.

I wasn't originally impressed by the look of the limited edition steelbook; the choice of art seemed a little uninspiring. This was a birthday gift and I was pleasantly surprised at how good the steelbook case was. The Rush limited edition steelbook has becomes something of a collectors item and is difficult to find. If you can find one at a reasonable price, don't hesitate!
