You don’t have to be a race to like this movie. It mostly focuses on Ken Miles (portrayed beautifully by Christian Bale) a maverick racer and engineer who still holds the record for fastest lap at LeMans in 1966. Matt Damon, as Carol Shelby, also turns in a very strong performance. Well written, beautifully shot and brilliantly acted... it’s certainly a contender for best picture.
Took me back to the tracks when we used to follow Formula 1, Great Job not far off the truth.
A great movie very well done
I know this history extensively and this is a great presentation of how much of this evolved. Carroll Shelby and Ken Miles were a team to reckon with. The Cobra and Gt40 are two of the most sought after collector cars from the 1960's. I feel privileged to currently own a car that he was involved with the design of. A 1995 Dodge Viper the closest thing to a modern day Cobra. And just like the Cobra & GT40 the Dodge Viper has gone on to set more track records than any other production car in history. Any car buff should see this movie and will appreciate it for the story of Ford and Shelby.
An excellent film! As my teenager said, “That was the best movie I’ve Seen in a long time.”
Action... Action.... Action... If you want a story of corporate America and it’s flaws, complimented with the vision and skills of the dreamers... This is you movie.. Except.... it’s only White Men running the world... As it was then....
Great acting and what a story about ford motor company 9 out of 10
I was it three times!!!
Great movie. Loved it all fun, funny,and thrilling to watch. Christian Bale is fabulous!!
This entire film is a work of sheer excellence! Christian and Matt are simply magnificent! They actually become the characters they are playing...the actor in them ends and that person begins...outstanding! A story/movie that is worth watching. Every piece of this movie has the brilliance to be in the winner's circle...perfection at its finest! Thank-YOU everyone involved! Joannie
My interest in auto sports started slightly before this time period. Ihave a list of best Auto related movies. This by far is the Best movie on the subject ever made. You don't have to be into the sport to enjoy this movie. A true story, great cast, I've been waiting for this one. OSCAR is waiting!!
GREAT Movie !!! Unbelievable VIDEO production. The friendships, racing, recks, & test driving had me, a Nascar Fan, on the edge of my seat !! I found myself laughing, yelling, claping & crying... Most fun I've had watching a Movie in years 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
"OSCAR WINNER" for sure. Superb acting, movie well done, the director is incredibly good at what he does.
It follows the real story to some degree but it’s really very entertaining.
Saw this film with Mose Nowland, the Engine Builder of the 67 GT40. His comment was 40% real, 60% Hollywood....however we throughly enjoyed the movie!! Going to see it again, Mose has seen it 3 times so far😁👍!!
I'm not a real car guy and I'd give it 9/10. Authentic and very good acting!
Five stars Very hard to believe but I was in the pit seats as a kid in Vancouver BC and my dad was involved with the John Player Special and this felt as though I was there again. Very rare for both the story and the action to hold your attention like this we did see it on the big screen with the best visuals. IT WAS GRIPPING I want to go again
most boring movie ever
Excellent. One of the year's ten best. Don't miss seeing it on the big screen.
Great movie!. I hated watching 25 minutes of previews though from scheduled start.
Best movie of the year. At last, not another comic book movie. This movie is for grown ups. A+++++ loved it!!
Love this movie, it does Ken Miles the justice he deserves as a pure blooded race car driver to his very core. I followed all these events as they unfolded in real life. I've read Shelby's personal accounts. I've met him in real life several times. Certainly there's a bit of Hollywood and a few inaccuracies that most folks won't notice. But all and all it tells a real story of an epic time of automobile endurance racing at its peak of raw power and the men amongst men where driven to drive those brute force beasts. A time when Americans dared to go all out against the racing world. I'm going back for a 3rd time tonight to sit along side Ken Miles.
Exciting, suspenseful, action packed, with good comic touches, worth seeing more than once.
Amazing. So thrilling. Goosebumps. Tears. Wow
Very entertaining! Peddle to the metal!
This movie brought to life all the feelings I had as a teenager during the Ford/Ferrari battle of 1966. Very well acted and presented, a great movie that shouldn't be missed by anyone with even a little interest in cars or racing!
Worst made movie ever saw
I saw this movie three times, it is super exciting, best acting, BEST PICTURE OF THE YEAR!
I am an old guy who lived during these times and being a super Ford enthusiasts these races were very exciting. The movie is great. The new Ford GT has the same roots as the original LeMans cars. See the movie, you will love it.
You don’t have to be a petrol head to love this movie! Reminded me of some of the old classics like the 1966 GrandPrix. My wife loved it too.
This movie is far more entertaining, daring, emotionally complex, and exhilarating then I would have ever imagined. Ken Miles story is one that required telling. I had no expectations going into this movie, and yet I left the theater in total awe. I'd say give this one a shot
Best movie of the year! Will see again several times. Christian Bale and Matt Damon were cast absolutely perfectly. Sincerely hope this wins an oscar!!
Director could have easily trimmed the time by 30 minutes so I won't jump on the band wagon and give it 5 stars. I think Christian slightly out shined Matt in their roles, but not by much. Solid movie based on true story, good to know HF II was an azz, and gave me an appreciation of race drivers. The length gave me spells of boredom.
Awesome movie I love Ford
Such a good movie. Probably the best I’ve seen this year.
Awesome movie that keeps you interested. Great acting and action sequences. Overall, a solid effort on a true event, just a few changes to the real story. Sound and effects were terrific. Must see again, my favorite flick this year.
I gained great respect for those who choose a career in serious racing. The movie showed that the competition was twofold: against Ferrari and oversized egos at Ford. Matt Damon and Christian Bale were fantasy.
Although it seemed like it was going to be long and drawn out by the length (2 1/2 hours) it was not! Great movie, well acted and the pace kept our interest all the way throught.
