Movie Review – Rush (2013)

After the success of 2012’s Argo, studios were looking for more “based on a true story” 70’s period pieces. And why not go with what has to be one of the biggest rivalries in racing history – the story of Nikki Lauda and James Hunt – two F1 drivers that started in 1970 and escalated their rivalry into what some say is the most exciting Grand Prix in history in 1976.

Ron Howard directed a very compelling and intense movie surrounding the lives of Lauda (Daniel Bruhl) and Hunt (Chris Hemsworth). Both had different styles in life and in driving but what had started rough between the two ended in friendship years later.

Everyone’s driven by something.
