Movie Review: Rush

Natural Born Rivals would have been a better title for this movie.

The Formula One story of natural rivals James Hunt and Niki Lauder.

The movie misses the point of their rivalry because it was made for an America audience.  Good guy vs bad guy was not how it played out in real life. They pushed each other to be the best they could be. Both could be intense assholes.

The last two minutes of the movie give you Niki Lauders point of view and this tells you what direction the movie should have taken. Could have been one of the best movies of the year but just misses the point.  Well made but…

2 3/4 stars out of 4
