Movie Review: Rush

Rush is the wonderfully inspiring story of Ferrari's F1 superchamp, Niki Lauda, whose intense competition with British James Hunt scorched the tracks in the late 70s. After being involved in a terrible accident mid season, in a race Niki had tried to get called off due to bad weather conditions, Niki fights back the scars and the fears, drawing inspiration from watching his rival win race after race and claw back into the lead.

In the final race of the season, in Japan, Niki pulls out, unwilling to put his life in danger again, and watches Hunt chase the world championship, needing to finish just 3rd to take a 1 point march over Niki.

Will Niki's pull out cost him the championship, or will it be a dream end to what could have been a terrible season?

Fantastic performances, and some great racing - this is so totally a movie not to be missed - whether you love F1 or not!
