Synopsis [A]n involving Formula One racing drama centered on the nasty mid-'70s rivalry between two drivers who couldn't have been more dissimilar.5 stars out of 5 -- RUSH far exceeds expectations, emerging as one of the most rip-roaring rides of Howard’s career.[N]ot just one of the great racing movies of all time, but a virtuoso feat of filmmaking in its own right, elevated by two of the year’s most compelling performances.Howard delivers the real deal in racing frieworks, but it's the way the film digs deep into the psyches of these risk junkies that raises the bar.4 stars out of 5 -- RUSH wins big, delivering the most exciting F1 footage created for film....It is sexy, funny, full of thrills.It's a classic story of competitors on a headlong collision course, a 450-horsepower movie traveling at 220 miles per hour.Director Ron Howard gives an edgy 'euro' feel to the exciting story of the ’70s Formula One rivals Niki Lauda and James Hunt.4 stars out of 4 -- The story of real-life rival race-car drivers, RUSH brilliantly captures the exhilaration that comes from facing death head-on. It's also an ode to joyous rivalry.The editing keeps each grand prix remarkably clear; especially as the clock winds down, it’s almost possible to feel the grinding motors and splashing mud.3 stars out of 4 -- RUSH, based on 1970s Formula One stars, brings their story to visceral, sympathetic life.Howard shoots the race scenes brilliantly....It’s an effective treatment, especially on the climactic Japanese Grand Prix, in the shadow of Mount Fuji in lethal weather conditions.Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl star as legendary Formula One drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda respectively in this biographical drama set during the 1970s, at the peak of their heated rivalry. Both on the track and off, Hunt (Hemsworth) and Lauda (Bruhl) couldn't have been more different. Yet as much as Englishman Hunt's showy public persona clashed with Lauda's reputation for tightly-controlled perfectionism, both men remained bound together by one undeniable fact -- they were both among the best drivers ever to grace the racetrack. When a horrific crash during the 1976 Grand Prix at the Nürburgring nearly claims Lauda's life, however, a grudging respect begins to develop between the two racers as Hunt realizes just how devoted his greatest adversary is to the sport they both love. Olivia Wilde and Alexandra Maria Lara co-star in a film directed by Academy Award-winner Ron Howard, and penned by Peter Morgan (FROST/NIXON, HEREAFTER).
