Rush (2013)

Rush is a very appropriate name for this movie , it really is a Rush. The Film makers succeeded in giving the audience a taste of what it feels like to be in an F1 race without putting us in the actual cars . You'll be holding your breath with every twist and turn and somewhat your adrenaline would be pumping. So yes quite obviously the movie's action race scenes are a good enough reason alone to watch it .
The true story of F1 race car drivers and rivals James Hunt and Nikki Lauda, is an amazing tale in itself , if you have no idea what happened between the two I urge you not to do research , you know spoilers. The film would be better without you knowing anything about them not unless you are a big fan of course. Action aside , which as I have said is amazing by the way . The off race track drama is superb,this is no Days of Thunder. What happens outside the racing is very compelling, never boring , fun to watch , there is never a dull scene in this movie . And I swear if the Academy does not honor Daniel Bruhl with even just an Oscar nomination for his role , I swear I will hunt all of them down and sacrifice them to the almighty lord of movies . Daniel is a genius in this movie , watching him in this film is like seeing Michelangelo paint the Sistine Chapel , true artist at work . I have been a big fan since Goodbye Lenin , I haven't seen all of his movies-but I think that this might just be his best performance . And then there is Chris Hemsworth who we all know and love as Thor , he is equally amazing in this movie. He more than held his own against Daniel Bruhl, not an easy feat considering that Daniel is an art house drama mainstay , who has done many more films than Chris in so many different languages opposite so many great veteran actors from different countries. After seeing this, I have to say Chris Hemsworth is more than just a Comic book hero movie star, he is a great actor , and he might just clinch nominations for this , even pick up a few awards hopefully, because he truly deserves it . The supporting, cast all of them also did an amazing job. I really can't find any flaws in this movie so I will just say_I urge you to see it, it really is great , you will have an awesome time watching it . The story , the action , the drama, the acting , the cinematography - all top of the line . This is film making at it's best .
