Director Ron Howard creates another masterpeice with his new film "Rush", a Formula One Race true story about the rivalry of the two famous race drivers driven by their passion to succeed. Set to be released on September 27, 2013 in United States, the movie is a story of James Hunt (played by Chris Hemsworth) and Niki Lauda (played by Daniel Bruhl) who sougth to win the 1976 World Championships in Fuji Japan.
A pure work of genius, "Rush" is movie that will transport you back in time and make you see the real good/bad side of each characters as opposed to typical movie stereotypes. Two rivals who are very similar in many ways than they could possibly know.
So now, here are the review roundups of this year's most anticipated film.
According to Variety, "Mozart vs. Salieri. Kennedy vs. Khrushchev. Gates vs. Jobs. Add to that list of epic clashes Formula 1 adversaries James Hunt and Niki Lauda, whose larger-than-life bout for the 1976 world championship title fuels Ron Howard's exhilarating Rush-not 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. It's high-octane entertainment that demands to be seen on the bigscreen, assembled for grown-ups and executed in such a way as to enthrall even those who've never watched a race in their life."
The Hollywood Reporter reveals, "Most modern-era car racing movies, from Grand Prix and Le Mans to Days of Thunder, have been far stronger at portraying the excitement on the track than at developing interesting downtime drama among the characters. But rather the reverse is true with Rush, which offers perfectly coherent racing coverage but devotes far more time to exploring the personalities of two drivers who represented behavioral polar extremes and drove each other to distraction."
The Telegraph states, "Rush breaks the mould; its racing scenes are thrilling, and the personal dynamics in the pits and away from the track genuinely intriguing. Here's a Formula One story that's not just for petrolheads. Of course, it's not really a Hollywood picture at all, but a generously budgeted independent film. Rush combines studios' production values and their penchant for action with British-flavoured storytelling."
Independence writes, "True to its title, Rush makes rousing viewing, even if the adrenalin thrill of the race sequences themselves can't always disguise the cliché-ridden aspects of Morgan's screenplay."
Forbes says, "It is very much in the Ron Howard wheelhouse via its emphasis on character over spectacle, acting over action, and story over style. It is the kind of solid studio programmer that might have felt like just another weekend big studio release in another era, but now feels like a breath of fresh air."
The Huffingpost concluded, "It's not only one of the better racing films, it's one of Howard's best. For Morgan, who also penned another distinct sports film, 2009's The Damned United, it's yet another example of his great talent for taking seemingly minor true stories and expanding them operatically."
