Rush – Review

RUSH

Veins thumping, hands trembling, machines roaring, crowds cheering.

Silence.

The flag falls.

Howard delivers, through DoP Anthony Dod Mantle, adrenaline jolts to the eyes and heart through stunning teeth-rattling, ear-shattering coverage of the races. Thrilling is an understatement.

F1 has never looked this good but this is not just a film for enthusiasts.

At its core, Rush highlights the fragility of life. The daring necessity for these drivers to stare death in the face just so they can feel alive.

Hemsworth is superb but Bruhl steals the show through a textured, constantly developing and rich performance as Lauda.

TL; DR: A thrilling, fascinating and a resoundingly human story that delivers thrills and spills aplenty through stunning cinematography and two excellent lead performances.

RATING: 4/5
