Whether you are a racing fan or not is no matter. Rush is a thrilling drama which captures the stubbornness of men who will settle for nothing less than victory, whatever the odds, whatever the risks.
The hugely differing personas of Lauda and Hunt are perfectly captured through the excellent performances by Daniel Brühl and Chris Hemsworth. And the large array of great supporting actors help paint a vivid picture of the colourful personal and professional lives of these men.
An education for some, adrenalin entertainment for others; Rush is a brilliantly-crafted film which captures its story’s era perfectly.
As always, we recommend you don’t ruin any surprises by reading spoilers or watching trailers. But if you hate surprises and would rather see the whole of the film’s story laid out for you in under 2 minutes, here you go:
