Really Short Movie Review : Rush

Rush-IMAGE-Poster-706x1024It’s not often that my wife gets to choose the movies that we watch, and even less often that I really enjoy what she’s chosen.

This fast paced, highly dramatised film on Formula 1 rivalry between Austrian Niki Lauda and British driver James Hunt will keep you riveted from the start.

The tightly choreographed races and claustrophobic views from within helmets were expertly used to heighten the tension during the races. These were complimented by the scenes of personal struggle and  triumph interspersed between races. All-in-all a well told story.

My only gripe is the films final line where Lauda reveals his true feelings for Hunt (voiced by the real Niki Lauda himself!) which I found to be an unconvincing climax.

Other than that it’s a really good film which I enjoyed thoroughly.

Verdict : Thumbs up
