Reviewer Ed Farolan

This is the true story of that competition in the mid-1960s, between the American car manufacturing giant Ford as it took on Italy’s Ferrari, the reigning champion of Le Mans. To stand a chance in the 24-hour circuit, the American corporation brought on two racing legends, Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon) and Ken Miles (Christian Bale) to help them take the European title.

The film was well-directed, especially if you like race cars. I do, and I enjoyed the excitement especially the thriller parts when you don´t know what´ll happen next as these race car drivers, especially the Foird and Ferrari racers,were going over the racing limit.

Great and exciting film! I recommend it highly. It won two Oscar awards: Best Film Editing and Best Sound Editing.
