A re-creation of the merciless 1970s rivalry between Formula One rivals James Hunt and Niki Lauda.

Release Year: 2013

Rating: 8.4/10 (8,976 voted)

Director: Ron Howard

Set against the sexy, glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing in the 1970s, the film is based on the true story of a great sporting rivalry between handsome English playboy James Hunt (Hemsworth), and his methodical, brilliant opponent, Austrian driver Niki Lauda (Bruhl). The story follows their distinctly different personal styles on and off the track, their loves and the astonishing 1976 season in which both drivers were willing to risk everything to become world champion in a sport with no margin for error: if you make a mistake, you die.

Taglines: Based on a true story.

Technical Specs


Did You Know?

Peter Morgan wrote the script of Rush 'on spec', or speculation, meaning there was no one waiting to buy it. So he wrote the first draft assuming there might not even be any racing sequences at all, because the prospective film would probably have a very low budget. 'If you grow up in England, that's how you think', he said. Instead, he structured the film as a race of sorts between the two main characters. See more »

During the lung vacuuming sequence, the close-up shots show the vacuum tube in line with Lauda's throat but a distant shot shows the tube almost perpendicular to his throat. See more »

Rating: 10/10

What a breath of fresh air... A brilliant film in every respect. I was lucky enough to this movie at a special preview and I cant tell you how great a film this is... At first you think its about racing cars, but its not it really does give you an insight into the human condition...

The rivalry between Hunt and Lauder is just played brilliantly... The race sequences are superb, really taking you back to the 70s... The heyday of this awesome sport. It shows the end of an era where the gentlemen drivers begin to give way to professional sportsmen and the end (in my opinion) of the excitement of the sport. It shows what a pale reflection today's F1 is of this once great sport, and what great characters we have lost...

A real must see movie
