Rush: Fast, But Not So Furious

Ron Howard's movie about worthy opponents takes us into the reckless (but not wreckless) world of Formula One racing in the mid-1970s.

In this flick based on real events, we meet James Hunt, a fast-driving, fast-living English playboy, and Niki Lauda, a fast-driving, methodical, calculating Austrian.

The competition between the two drives them to take the kind of risks that rev up speed.

You don't have to be a race car fan to enjoy this movie, but it would help. Otherwise Rush makes an enjoyable visit to the multiplex, but not quite the rush you're looking for.
