I've been waiting for this ever since BridgeToGantry.com started blogging about witnessing the Nurburgring crash scenes being filmed at ... Nurburgring! It's getting utterly spectacular reviews - even from "film people" as opposed to car people.. like this relatively spoiler-free one from a typically super-critical uk mag:
http://www.empireonline.com/reviews/...asp?FID=137779

I'm off to see it in 10 minutes!

Please elaborate... what were you expecting to see?

I thought it was quite well done, well balanced in that F1 nerds and car guys could still appreciate it while still being enjoyable for the masses to watch.

I also thought it was pretty good. But I went into it without expectations. Sure there were lots of little details, but only a hardcore car enthusiast would notice.

Saw it last night with the 8legs team and wives ... not a bad movie. I didn't care much about the F1 "accuracy" as it was a pretty great story, and for once not Hollywood made up bullshit (well, I'm sure they tweaked some of it). Fun watch, nothing to write home about. Was expecting a bit more on track action, but I guess it wasn't really about that.

It was the best racing film Ive ever seen - but it doesent capture any real F1 know-how or technical aspects, which is understandable since its a movie targeted at everyone at not just gearheads.

Also, Lauda was and still is an arrogant prick - and not many folks like him, which is still true to this day.....just ask Ross Brawn!

Haven't seen it yet, but planning.

On the topic of Lauda, this may have been to piss him off, or not-- either way, I found it funny:

Have you seen the movie Senna ?

Netflix has it if you missed it in the theater.

I haven't seen the movie yet but my friends who have seen it liked it.

Back then, you had to keep on top of when F1 was being televised. It was no where near as popular as it is nowadays.

Lauda was a great driver for Ferrari and McLaren.

BTW, it was Hunt who convinced McLaren to give Gilles a shot at F1.

I saw Senna - three times! I remember watching his last race - I couldn't believe he was gone! I thought he was the best driver ever, but had a short fuse.

I really enjoyed that era with the JPS Lotuses, McLaren/Hondas etc..... After Senna's death, I stopped watching F1. Not sure why

I'd love to see a modern day F1 based movie - maybe based on the rivalry between Schumacher-Hakkinen or Senna-Prost, Mansell-Piquet etc - still Rush was worth seeing.

Wish granted.... well, at least one of them.... The Senna movie is about Senna-Prost.

There is a cool article in R&T about ALMS battle - Bergmeister vs Magnussen, Laguna Seca 2009...this is a great few minutes of racing!!! Check it out....

The acting was phenomenal as well. Plus we have better drivers on the road because of it due to the upgraded parts on these cars.
Really? I'm speechless.

What else could you expect..he's Austrian...LOL! but actually he's not anymore. Age does that to you. He spent lots of time with the actor so that he could get his true character right. Lauda is straight forward guy no BS and people are taken back by that. People in general don't like the truth. He's a very busy business man and for him to do that shows he's not so arrogant.

Ron Howard went to pain staking degree's to make the movie as authentic as the real thing. Lauda was very pleased to see how well he captured that era, the characters etc.

it is...and was what it was....
