Anyone who didn't love this film must have water in their veins. It's gritty, funny, and totally absorbing. There is, of course, a little Holywood creativity but it is essentially a true story of courage, skill, and perseverance. Totally gripping!

Need for speed!

A great movie. Christian Bale gives a power house performance and Matt Damon is superb in his role. A touching family dynamic; a loving Mum, Dad and child study which you rarely see in movies today and the racing is just awesome, Very good film.

Loved it!

Despite being a long film it is absolutely brilliant and it kept me gripped all the way through.. Loved the characters and it is a true story. Would highly recommend, even if you're not a motor racing fan.

Good, but....

Good film, enjoyed it.... just wished it was not the Americans trying to re-write history, pretty sure the UK developed the chassis/car.... the engine was american though....
