While I’m completely in awe over Chris Hemsworth’s physical physique, beautiful blue eyes and gorgeous locks, I am now, also in awe of his acting abilities. Chris who also plays Thor, did an outstanding job of playing James Hunt in this “based on a true story” about the revelry between two race car drivers, (James Hunt and Niki Lauda, played by Daniel Brühl). I loved the great Ron Howard’s directional approach to this topic of race cars, noisy engines and big egos with just the right amount of love interests and morality to keep it balanced and interesting.
Daniel César Martín Brühl González Domingo (his birth name) brought his character, Niki Lauda, to life with all the passion, motivation, and skill required to play this complex role. Normally, I would have been bored to death watching cars run around a track, as I am not a fan of race car driving but I was totally sucked in to this riveting story. I think anyone would benefit from watching this action packed film on the big screen. Anyway, how can you go wrong with Ron Howard at the helm?
