A Niki Lauda film must of course be legendary and Ron Howard is an excellent director. This guy is an Austrian national hero for cutting through the bullshit. Daniel Bruehl was really unexpectedly convincing as Lauda. And Hemsworth even better as the real life James Hunt. Loved it, esp. the character drama built around it.
I have no interest in Formula 1, but I was still gripped. There's a little too much "on the nose" dialogue and explanatory VoiceOver for my taste, but Lauda's a fascinating character and Brühl gives a great performance. I was glad to see that he got as much, if not more screen time than playboy Hunt.
Good movie - keeps you on your heels till the end
This true story of two F1 race drivers deals with two types of characters. One who wins the race to have fun, and the other who has his fun(interest) in winning the races. The former is unpredictable while the latter is more professional and consistent.
The screenplay and drama of the movie is very good. I could not believe after watching the movie that this is a true story.
