Plot Summary
In the mid-1970s, charismatic English playboy James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and Austrian perfectionist Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl) share an intense rivalry in Formula 1 racing. Driving vehicles that are little more than gas-filled, rolling bombs, Hunt and Lauda burn up the track, all the while pushing themselves to the breaking point of physical and mental endurance. Meanwhile, the women (Olivia Wilde, Alexandra Maria Lara) in their lives can only watch as both drivers risk death with every lap.

  • It's Morgan's core script, full of humor, heartache and verbal fireworks, that lifts Rush above the "Fast & Furious" herd. show more

  • The ego trips and sexuality and driving are all filmed with equal intensity, to the point where the emotions and flesh and crunched metal seem to blend together. The movie's only major problem is that the tension sometimes overwhelms. show more

  • Brilliantly captures the exhilaration that comes from facing death head-on. It's also an ode to joyous rivalry. show more

    Not the best of the year, but a well done movie. More F1 action would've added to the story. All in all a lot of info crammed into 123 minutes.

    Amazing film. I was most struck by the complete opposite nature of both characters, and the way in which their diametrically different personalities helped either be the best at what they did respectively; as thrilling as the races are, that is what truely captured my attention in this film.
