Rush


Rush is a film about a 2 formula 1 race car drivers: One is a crazy, reckless party dude, and the other has Aspergers, and the rivalry between the 2. Rush is THE BEST film of the year, so far. There is a difference between me saying something is my favorite, and me saying something is the best. Rush is the most well made film in every regard. It was intense, the story was really gripping, the characters were amazing (accompanied by perfect performances), the camera work was incredible, and it flew by at a perfect pace. It didn't go by super fast like JJ Abrams Star Trek films, rather it glide by at a smooth and comfortable pace, allowing the audience to take in everything that happens in a comfortable manner. The main character in this film is the sport itself, and Thor and Aspergers are just merely the players. Daniel Bruhl really steals the show. He plays such an asshole. As the film nears the end, you gain a certain admiration for him. He isn't an asshole, he is just professional. The fun to him is being the best, and you really respect that. Chris Hemsworth enjoys life, and racing is the perfect compliment to his live fast die young lifestyle. Both people have a certain respect each other's lifestyle, but neither would live as the other. What brings them together is the love and respect of the sport, regardless how each one views it. Rush is an exciting and amazing sports drama about real life Formula 1 racers James Hunt and Niki Lauda, and the rivalry between the 2 and may, in my opinion, be the best work from Director Ron Howard, and is certainly his best film since Apollo 13. I won't be losing any sleep if the film doesn't win best picture at the Oscars, but I will be really pissed if Daniel Bruhl doesn't win. Unless, of course, Michael Fassbender wins for 12 Years a Slave. So go see it if you haven't. If you aren't satisfied, you are an asshole
