Ron Howard over the years has made a reputation for himself as a master storyteller and he proves it yet again with his latest offering ”Rush”.
Rush is a biographical action film about the 1976 Formula One season and the rivalry between drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda. Both as different as chalk and cheese have one thing in common–their unflinching desire to win. While James Hunt sort of roughshods his way into glory by his flamboyance, Niki Lauda leaves his mark with his technical and meticulous nature. Ron Howard and his writer exploit these aspects at the start of the movie and build on it. The result is a pacy movie that exploits racing backdrop to the extent that is required for story telling.
True to Ron Howard, his story telling craft never gets lost in the hustle bustle of the racing spectacles.
