From Library Staff

This flick is thrilling whether you know about the cars, the drivers (and their egos), or how the 1966 24 hours of Le Mans turns out. It chronicles the rivalry between two automobile giants, as Henry Ford II decides to build a new racing car that can break Ferrari's winning streak. The acting is ... Read More »

If you can get past Christian Bale's terrible attempt at an English accent, then this isn't half bad. I like how the corporate hacks are portrayed as such, a nice, exacting touch.

The movie was fun and fast paced! I would definitely recommend this movie. I want a hat like Shelby! (Matt Damon). 👍

I loved every minute of this movie: multi-faceted story, flawless performances, tight writing, good pacing. Fascinating to watch how race cars are engineered. Highly recommend.

I'm someone who doesn't care at all about car racing but, when I was watching this movie, it made me care about car racing. The director's focus on telling a story about characters you really care about made all the difference. Personally, I think they could have cut a half hour of the run time by showing less pedal pushing and gear shifting, but people who are into cars and racing probably won't share that opinion. I'd watch it again.

I'm not a car officionado, but this is a heck of a portrayal of these men and their machines. I am impressed when ever anyone can handle the nonsense of egotistical B.S. from corporate world. Lord only knows I can't!
A scathing image of Ford Motor Company, in my opinion.

Director James Mangold makes endurance racing look exciting.

Quite a good movie. But that's not sportsmanship the way Fords came over the winning line rubbing it into Ferrari's face. They had done that anyway coming 1st 2nd and 3rd.

Pacing and performances are tight for a 2.5 hour-long movie. Maybe a more fitting title would have been Drivers v Businessmen. Definitely worth your time, unless you simply detest motor sports.
