Rush Reviews


It's consistently engaging. Don't miss it.

Raja Sen


For the Formula One fan, this is a film worthy of a magnum of Mumm’s finest champagne -- if only for the chance to hear those massive V12 engines explode across the big screen. VrrrRRRRRRooom.

Rush is gripping and deeply satisfying. I’m going with four stars and recommending that you see it.

What adds to the film's brilliance is its astounding cinematography, be it the wheel-to-wheel, rain-soaked racing or crash scenes. Performances are supremely authentic as well. Both Hemsworth and Bruhl play their parts with utmost perfection. Background score creates the psychological tension required.

The film is a triumph of storytelling and it has everything in good measure. Daniel Bruhl as Niki is spot on and ditto with Chris Hemsworth in a more memorable performance.Rush is certainly one of the best films from Hollywood this year. Go for it!

There are plenty of heroic moments in the film and you can’t help but clap till your hands bleed.


"Rush" is an engaging biopic with intense performances that will thrill you even if you are not an F1 buff.

    Rush. Based on real story of rivalry between two F1 drivers of 70s, dashing James Hunt played by 'Thor' fame Chris Hemsworth and clinical Niki Lauda played by incredible Daniel Brühl.

    Like a F1 race, Rush is also a racy drive with lots of bends in the story testing the lead characters' spirit and temperament. Both lead characters are so well developed and well played that they leave an indelible mark on your minds. Director Ron Howard masterly organizes a wonderful show of technical finesse, sharp dialogues, uncluttered screenplay and cinematic thrill of F1 racing. The love-hate-respect relationship between James and Niki is electric and every now and then you feel the adrenaline rush that they are feeling.

    There is hardly any dull moment and emotional conflicts revolving around the love lives of both the racers is handled with a light hand so that you are never distracted from the main plot. I am going with fantastic 8 out of 10 for Rush. This is one of the best sports movies in recent times and will surely get a cult status in future. Rush for this.
