Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: If you don't already know the story of that season, lucky you; even now, it exerts a ridiculous thrill. – Anthony Lane, New Yorker, Sep 30, 2013

Fresh: Howard proves that directing action is one of his underrated strengths. The racing scenes are dynamic and easy to follow, with a sheen that brings the 1970s into sharp relief. – Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle, Sep 26, 2013

Fresh: Considering the subject matter, Rush delivers the expected visceral jolts; what's surprising is how endearing it is, even when its two protagonists are behaving like little more than boys with very fast toys. – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Dec 31, 2013

Fresh: Rush has an elemental simplicity about it. Two men in competition, driven (so to speak) to win. They are enemies. But they need each other, too, and as they roll around at 170 m.p.h., they come to understand why. – Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer, Sep 27, 2013

Watch it. Watch it now and thank me later :)

Remarkable in every sense. Even if you are not an avid Formula 1 fan, you will be caught in an exhilarating ride that you will NEVER want to stop! such amazing direction, music and acting. Favourite movie of the year.

The greatest racing film ever made

As accurate as the movie gets on the story (even accuracy approved by the real Niki Lauda) It is a must see movie for every racing fan from NASCAR, IndyCar to F1. This movie is award worthy

Worth Every Cent

I was lucky enough to see this movie at the Toronto International Film Festival. Beautifully written, beautifully shot, fantastically paced, wonderfully acted; with incredible attention to the smallest details. There hasn't been a historical sports film of this caliber since Seabiscuit. Keep an eye out for this one at the Oscars.
