A biography on American underdogs from a blue-collar industry with notable actors, an impressive production team, and an inspiring story; did someone say Oscars? Whatever its intent, ‘Ford v Ferrari' is an impressive biopic that rarely strays from its path. A melding of entertainment and creativity, this should be considered both a commercial and critical success. Fire up your engine and race to the cinema to catch this film that everyone's sure to be talking about. - Charlie David Page Read Charlie's full article... https://www.maketheswitch.com.au/article/review-ford-v-ferrari-a-racing-b... read the rest.

I never expected a sports film, let alone one based on a true story, to impress me so damn much. James Mangold offers one of the best, if not the best sports movie ever. With award-worthy performances from both Christian Bale and Matt Damon, Ford v Ferrari (aka Le Mans ‘66) has characters so exceptionally-written and so emotionally compelling that I felt like crying by the end of the film. The races are riveting and entertaining, but it's the beautiful screenplay that gets me. Definitely, one of the movies of the year! Rating: A+

I'd have preferred to see Michael Mann's version, but this is an impressive and heartfelt study of friendship and triumph Next year, Ferrari's ass is mine. Carroll Shelby, after losing to Ferrari in the 1964 World Sports Car Championship To take control of this materialised energy, to draw the reins over this monster with its steel muscles and fiery heart - there is something in the idea which appeals to an almost universal sense, the love of power.

Well made sports-racing movie with excellent acting by Damon and Bale (no surprise there) and the racing sequences were great, not to mention the sound design. Kind of was concerned there wouldn't be enough story to fill the nearly 2.5 hour runtime, but this kept me engaged, though the ending was a bit anticlimactic. Still, good work from James Mangold. 4.5/5

I think Ford v Ferrari suffers from mismarketing. I don't mean that it was poorly marketed, and that the trailers made it look bad or anything. Just that it was marketed inaccurately. When I was keeping myself abreast of this project, it seemed very much that the insinuation was that the movie would be a battle between Bale's and Damon's respective characters. That this would essentially be the run-through of the whole film, and the climax would feature one emerging victorious over the other. In actual fact, the opposite is true. Ford v Ferrari is largely about the friendship and partnershi... read the rest.

Click here for a video version of this review: https://youtu.be/IByQpyGV9Lg Despite not being a big fan of track car racing - I'm more of a rally man - the chance to see Matt Damon and Christian Bale lead in a true life story attracted me to Ford v Ferrari. It's a very good movie that tells the tale of the development of Ford's race program to topple Ferrari as the champions of Le Mans.

Exactly what you'd expect from a movie featuring Led Zeplin in its trailer (+1 star for Christian Bale's compelling performance).
