"Simply a brilliant movie"

If you're questioning purchasing/ watching this movie, just do it. Even if you have no interest or knowledge on Formula 1, this movie will grip, entertain and enthrall you from the very beginning.

Based on a true story, this movie will take you back to the 1970's, a time when Formula 1 was at its sexiest, and most glamorous. Rush tells of the epic, merciless Formula 1 rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda; two characters with entirely different personal lives and attitudes, but the same goal. The film follows the characters on and off the race track, featuring some breath taking race sequences, and a true insight into the drivers behind the wheel. It is a film that can be enjoyed by anyone, not just a petrol head.

The portrayal of James Hunt (by Chris Hemsworth), a british playboy driving for mclaren, spending his time off the track enjoying the benefits of being a glamorous Formula 1 driver in the 1970's, and Niki Lauda (by Daniel Bruhl), a methodical risk assessor that may come across as a little 'boring' in comparison, is flawless. Watching this movie you really begin to feel like you know and understand the legendary racers being portrayed, their rivalry, their friendship, and their willingness to literally give their lives for the sport they live for.

This Sleek, stylish, breathtaking film comes from the collaboration of the screenwriter Peter Morgan (American Sniper), and director Ron Howard (Apollo 13). Rush is truly a 'must-see', adrenaline-fueled classic, that will undoubtedly make you fall in love with the characters. In my opinion, THE best movie of 2013.

    There are very many superb DVD and Blu Ray reviews here on Ciao. The best advice I can give is to read around the site - in the film section - and see what we give the best rates to and why. R.
