Ford VS Ferrari 🔥🔥

just watched this movie. How good was it. Not really into car movies (except earlier Fast and Furious) But this was decent.

Not a bad watch. The usual Hollywood style of a driver gritting his teeth, changing gear and/or pushing the throttle down further to overtake really annoys me.

Also, wonder why the pretended Miles didn’t race LM in 1965, when he did.

Though I can understand for simplicity they pretty much made it look like drivers went solo for 24 hours!

I definitely enjoyed this one. Very strong central performances. Racing scenes were very impressive and I thought they did a nice job of re-creating that pit area and ambience. I think it's enjoyable enough for a mass audience. Will be very interested to see how much cut-through it has come the Oscars.

I've begrudgingly accepted the racing cliches in movies - sideways glances, pulling an extra gear etc. The racing situations are quite contrived. But yeah, the '65 omission is a tough one to take.

I don't wish to spoil it for anyone who hasn't yet seen it but I saw it last night - and I loved it. Yes, omitting a year was a bit strange but we have to remember that the film wasn't necessarily made for diehard petrolheads and Le Mans fanatics. As a piece of entertainment it succeeded for me on all levels.

I saw it yesterday with my wife and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. I was skeptical going in as I had read an interview with either Bale or Damon (can't remember which) that said that neither of them were car guys. Was also worried about inaccuracies (not so much historical, but geographical) but then actually had fun spotting the shots of Road Atlanta subbing in for La Sarthe. Every time the Dunlop bridge was shown that was actually the bridge past turn 7 at Road Atlanta and the cars were traveling the opposite direction. Figure the Mulsanne Straight must have also been some highway in Georgia.

I appreciated that they did an excellent job conveying the mystique of Le Mans and what makes it special, they showed respect for the hallowed grounds. Not ashamed to admit that when Bale is explaining to Damon the difficulty of winning Le Mans and the passion required that I had a single tear stream down my cheek, that part got me, from then on I was enthralled.

Just back, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Yes, historically inaccurate, but as entertainment, excellent.

Was I seeing things or was part of the filming done at Road Atlanta but in reverse?

Indianapolis on one shot looked a lot like turn 6 or 7 but in reverse.

Watched it last night and overall I liked it very much! There were a number of big eye-roll moments for me like that Californ....err, Daytona 24 battle to the finish with the Holman & Moody sister car, and the silly "evil Italian" side glances from that one Ferrari driver during the LM24 whilst doing 200+ down the straights. As mentioned here so many times in this thread, the "extra gear" cliches were tiresome and many throughout the film, but like some, I've just come to accept it when dealing with the mainstream. There were a few other niggly wiggly things here and there but ultimately those didn't detract from my viewing experience quite as much as the aforementioned.

Great exposure for motorsport and Le Mans history put out for the general/ignorant public to see. Overall, I enjoyed the film very much and would certainly watch it again!

If it encourages a few people to get out to Le Mans next year, then that has to be a good thing. I need no encouragement, of course......

I saw it at the weekend and enjoyed it. Yes, it distorts (or completely ignores) some elements of the true story, but decent performances and well shot action sequences (apart from the aforementioned sideways glances and extra pedal pushing at 200 mph!) make it well worth a watch.

Like "Rush" there have obviously been compromises made for the mainstream audience, but it gets more right than it gets wrong and, like Rush, you have the added challenge of spotting the subbed in corners!

From a Hollywood movie perspective, I found the movie excellent! Even with small references to the original Steve McQueen movie (Enzo Ferrari nodding to Ken Miles in acknowledgement). Even my girlfriend who is not interested in cars or motorsport (yet!) found it really good and would see it again.

From an enthusiast perspective, there where definitely elements which was questionable other than the major aspect. Ei. I noticed in Peter Miles (Ken's son) room, there is a die-cast model box of the Lola T70, in the same year as the car itself was launched.
This does not take away from the whole some enjoyment of the movie and the fact that this movie will hopefully bring more attention to motorsport, especially Le Mans, making it a more stable economic factor for all competing.

Saw it on Sunday in 2 d and really found it excellent. Notwithstanding some of the gear changes etc. I liked it. My stomach churned at the rev counter views at times but then again they did do that. The Ken Miles story is fascinating in terms of his capabilities and how he got lost in history.

But for me the corporate shinanigans reflected my perception of how something like Ford would behave. In particular the Iacoca character came across authentically.

But the dynamic between Miles and Shelby was excellent.

I hope to go and see it, hopefully it was technically made a "little" better than "Grand Prix" ! I was at the filming of some of that at Brands Hatch many moons ago and appear in the background in some shots. I remember looking at the "fake" F1 cars being driven round with wired on V8 exhaust manifolds but running skinny tyres. However we got a free Hot Dog for standing about all day
