About the Movie

Two­-time Academy Award® winner Ron Howard delivers the exhilarating true story of a legendary rivalry that rocked the world. During the sexy and glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing, two drivers emerged as the best: gifted English playboy James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth, The Avengers) and his methodical, brilliant Austrian opponent, Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl, Inglourious Basterds). As they mercilessly clash on and off the Grand Prix racetrack, the two drivers push themselves to the breaking point of physical and psychological endurance, where there’s no shortcut to victory and no margin for error. Co-­starring Olivia Wilde (TRON: Legacy), it’s the heart-racing, epic, action­-drama that critics are calling “one of the best movies of this, or any, year” (Pete Hammond, Movieline).

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: 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

Fresh: This is a deeply adult drama, not least because Howard shows the costs of being so driven in a sport in which a driver is encased in a potential fireball. – Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post, Sep 27, 2013

One of the few movies worth watching this year


Just saw this movie today. It's was very entertaining. Really good movie. Great acting from the people the actors portray. Based on a true story. Really liked it.

See it.

One of the best movies of the year. An adult film set apart from the usual Hollywood drivel.
