Finally I had the chance to watch “Rush” and I enjoyed every single minute of it. The movie was intense, it was dramatic and it was full-packed with action. After the announcement of this year’s Oscars nominees I saw hundreds of comments about how shocked people were after knowing that “Rush” was out of the competition. So, my expectations were high and at last I was able to watch the movie.
“Rush” its the story of the 1970’s rivalry between two Formula-1 drivers, the British James Hunt (interpreted by Chris Hemsworth) and the Austrian driver Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl). Its a story about a talented driver who it’s always thinking about his job and in ways to improve his cars and performances and about a driver who is more concerned in enjoying life at its best, seizing every moment of it. A story about two drivers who had dreamt to become world champions of Formula 1.
“Rush” follows the driver’s love life and the early years of their career, when they were just mere Formula 3 drivers. The fantastic story of the astonishing 1976 World Championship in which both of them put their lives at risk to be champion. “Rush” it’s about strong ambitions and about facing fears.
I really enjoyed watching Chris Hemsworth in the movie, who proves once again that he is really talented and I was amazed with the performance by Daniel Brühl, who did a terrific job interpreting Niki Lauda.
“Rush” it’s not just made for those who love F1, it’s made for everyone who likes to watch a story about fighting for your dreams. “Rush” brings adrenaline and joy to the viewer, while telling a story that deserves to be told. Based on true events, “Rush” can be seen as a lesson about taking risks to achieve our dreams and objectives.
