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.

• The Real Story Of Rush
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

Bruhl and Hemsworth are excellent as Lauda and Hunt. The race scenes are atmospheric and pulsate with speed.
These two drivers more than merited a film about their careers. Nikki, thankfully, is still with us. James, unfortunately, is not. And he could have disappeared from our 'ken' within a few years. This film will remain an excellent representative story of two professional drivers who had an 'explosive' relationship on, and off the track.
James Hunt, a great driver, all heart and brilliantly played. I deeply miss his commentary and I remember his awesome drive in the Japanese Grand Prix. Lauda, dry, laconic, an awesome talent, a true professional and lovingly played with a great performance. I am a petrolhead, my wife isn't and she really enjoyed this film. One to watch again and again, kudos to Ron Howard's thrilling direction too... a brilliant film, it nails the era, the personalities, the cars and the sport. Easily the best F1 film out there.
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)

Well acted, kept me enthralled throughout.
Too young to have followed '70s Formula 1 - Hunt was always a celeb playboy who had won something, whilst Lauda was the guy that came back from an horrific accident and out of retirement to pip Prost for the title in '84. (more my era of interest in Formula 1)
Had I realised that '76 was such an epic season, with the on-track rivalry between dour determined chalk and excessive flamboyant cheese - and that awful accident - I would have watched this film several years ago - amazing.
Yes, contains factual inaccuracies for the Formula 1 fans to spot, but, if Nikki Lauda himself endorses it - what can you say?
This kept all six of our family on the edge of our seats. The kids loved it as did us adults. Obviously the older ones knew the story, the ending etc and we've seen most of the documentaries about Hesketh and the 1976 season so I can tell you there is very little poetic licence used here.
Sit back, crack a drink and toast a great rendition of one of sports greatest moments.
