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.

The poorly paced Christine only reinforced the notion, doing modest business and pleasing few at the time with what should have been a killer concept made in horror movie heaven: a car that's born bad to the bone and its increasingly deadly love affair with the geek-turned-jock who restores it and becomes violently possessed by it.
