Director Ron Howard tackles the real-life tale of F1 racers James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl), who shared a notorious rivalry during their heyday in the 1970s. Howard's adrenaline-spiking, expertly executed race sequences are a highlight here. Still, despite strong performances by Hemsworth and Brühl, the often stilted dialogue and Howard's decision to intercut some of the film's scenes with footage of the real Lauda and Hunt are likely to take the audience out of the movie in some of the moments when it most counts.
