Ron Howard directs this zippy, true-life sports tale of British bad boy James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth, hot off Thor) and intense Austrian Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl from Inglourious Basterds). The obsessive Hunt/Lauda rivalry was the talk of mid-'70s Formula 1 racing. If you care at all about Formula 1 racing, this film might actually mean something to you. Howard does a great job of capturing the period detail and lenses the race sequences with nail-biting skill. But the plot doesn't really go much deeper than fast cars, hot women and the selfish jerks who love them. 123 minutes R.
