About the Movie

Ayrton Senna was a racing driver and triple Formula One world champion. A passionate athlete who was revered and feared by his contemporaries, Senna's life and career (although cut short) is one that is etched into the history books. He was born into a wealthy Brazilian family. He competed in 161 Grand Prix over 10 years. And he took 64 pole positions, winning a massive 41. He has been described as charismatic, single-minded and totally focused, as well as lauded by his peers as "An extraordinary driver and an extraordinary person". Ayrton Senna was the idol for millions of Formula One fans, one of them being champion Lewis Hamilton. We take you on a chronological journey of the personal and professional life of this amazingly gifted sporting champion.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: It's stripped of narration, talking heads, and anything else that might threaten to slow it down. – Anthony Lane, New Yorker, Aug 22, 2011

Fresh: Plays like a narrative feature, juicy and alive, with enough kinetic excitement to hook the Formula One-ignorant (me, I knew next to nothing about the subject), let alone racing fans worldwide. – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, Aug 18, 2011

Fresh: The movie's assemblage of audio interviews poured mostly over astounding race footage is fit for a shrine. – Wesley Morris, Boston Globe, Aug 18, 2011

Fresh: What makes "Senna" essential viewing is the propulsive education it provides in one of the world's most popular sports, and the introduction it provides to an extraordinary athlete and human being. – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Aug 19, 2011

Doesn't show any Senna racing footage

Even for $0.99 rental, this is overpriced. The video only narrates his career, but does not actually use any footage of Senna racing - a deal-breaker for anyone looking to watch the master.
It is obvious that the people that put this video together were not F1 or Senna insiders. The narrator repeatedly pronounces Imola in a most peculiar way, and footage of a Marlboro-liveried Champcar is shown instead of the McLaren with the same sponsor. Most of the footage used seemed to be from historic F1 races - meaning amateur car owners racing in club events with historic F1 equipment - or from test days.
Very disappointing, even for less than a dollar to rent.
