Rush is a sports action drama detailing the true life fierce rivalry between professional racing car drivers James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl), from the British Formula Three race in 1970 until the Japanese Grand Prix in 1976.
Hemsworth delivers a strong performance, showcasing his versatility as an actor under the brilliant direction of Ron Howard. The loud, octane charged, high-speed racing sequences are exhilarating in this insightful look at the egotistical and competitive world of motor racing.
Rush is the incredible story of courage, endurance and the overwhelming need to be world champion, highlighting strong competitiveness is mandatory if best performances are to be extracted from the participants.
Thoroughly enjoyable this is the must-see movie of the year. (MM)
