For die-hard fans only!
I was eager to watch this movie, it's quite a must-have for car-racing lovers and Steve McQueen fans.
What about me? I found it quite slow (funny to say that about such a movie, isn't it?) regarding the plot and the characters' interaction, but of course that's not the reason I purchased the movie for: the main, and maybe only reason to watch it (and even to own it) is its relevance as an evidence, and a loving memory, of a lost world of daring heroes and glamorous women, in the beautiful days of old when car-racing was still a gentlemens' sport, and not just the mad, robotic world it has become today.
I enjoyed it, therefore, especially regarding the extra section, with a long interview to Chad McQueen and other drivers and car managers of the old days, and to the film director and the crew, explaining all the technical details that make the movie so precious. Thank you Amazon, for making such a movie available and at a very low price. Five stars for me.
