Looks good. but NOTHING will ever touch Grand Prix (1966) IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN GRAND PRIX YOU HAVE TO

Grand Prix was done without CGI,

Yes I've seen it. LeMans is another great. But this seems like a good effort for racing movie, do you remember Driven?

Driven? With Stalone?

Decent driving scenes, plot sucks hardcore. Plus i didn't like how they tried to merge IndyCar/Cart/F1 into the same movie.

It's a must see IMO. Also, watch Le Mans with Steve McQueen.

Saw the trailer in the theater. Big ole "meh." I just don't buy Thor (Chris Hemsworth) in that role. But, may have to watch b/c of Ron Howard.

I'm a Rush fan as well but you can't be dissapointed with vintage F1!

Ronin, not a racer but another great driving movie.
