Starting to write the first line, I want to place accents correctly — "Ford vs Ferrari" this is to gloss glossy, but in the same time, sweet candy, taken for overage of the jury handing out the prestigious statuettes. These paintings, telling us about the past tragedies or the victories of the country are often filled with the spirit of patriotism, innovation and deprivation. This pure politics, trying to remove political (often) or some of the production Thriller (work something like in the "In the spotlight" 2015), the event which you can calmly put in thirty minutes of time.

A story about how two people are trying to create modernization potentially the best car we broken by trying to pile on the suspense with corporate squabbles. It and we see annoyingly pompous way son Ford, who wants "great again". And all this takes us to the ending, after the credits which the viewer attends a really fun insight. The whole movie tries to dance around political/corporate innuendo, yet the process of creating them a better version of the machine, and in fact, all solves only one person. One person is able to reach the maximum speed of the crumbling of the machine. One man has already been not first time at risk of their lives. And all this understanding even more amusing — because fact that the picture as and her many faceless such works not gives us bright the backbone of the story. Here you can see the outstanding person, but plain and interesting — no. If both the main characters were in real life, here you are not will see. Himself the process of constructing history becomes dancing to tune in some semblance of a traveling circus, where and trying to hold the viewer's attention around a banal and boring story. Hero Christian Bale then it want to fire, and this recurrence is almost a non-symmetrical design up to the end of the film. Some steal the clock again we show unhappy face son Ford. The picture is not even trying to place in narrative as more details — it is simply meaningless perestanut. And those points races, where would to catch up even more tension authentic soundtrack (hell, I even the drama) you will hear a very light motive, it is not characteristic intense race.

Attempt to squeeze the tears in the ending also is true, and attempts related to this action look almost not hypocritical. As if set exhausted under the end of the shooting process (if the film was shot not end). And because all signed a good crew, there is a great cast-list. Yeah and Christian bale, even from the banal roles still able to squeeze the juice. Only here the story itself is absolutely stingy with spectacular narrative, and all attempts to catch up with the voltage and to diversify the story is reminiscent of dances with a tambourine around the campfire. Ridiculous and, quite frankly, "sucks".

Quite watchable dummy for prestigious film festivals on a regular (annual) wave of patriotism. Attempt to dance on uninteresting story. And because conventionally, the same "Rush" Ron Howard wins this representative, at least the expense of better disclosure of the characters. Of course it's not so sad and hopeless, as it might seem from the sentiment of the above lines. Minutes timekeeping racing Christian Bale and just a couple of close-UPS with his intense facial expressions — certainly the best that is there. But to see if for this?

Somehow the beginning I thought that "Ford vs Ferrari" incredibly boring movie. Everything from trailer ending with the poster screaming about that this is a typical American historical "propaganda", the tale of that America is a great country in the first place because of its people, and not everything else. What was my surprise, when already on the first minute I realized I can not break away from the screen.

Of course in the first, the film rests on the story, which simultaneously intertwines many lines: there you the tragedy of rider who is no longer have the ability to do what you love, financial troubles small family, friendly contradictions and intrigues the corporate fat cats who are accustomed to always leave the last word themselves. It all, let wryly retold, but very interesting, although really, the film is certainly not about it. Watching how the designers are struggling to achieve perfection for the fact that the car managed to survive 24 hours incredible speeds, have you really begin to catch my breath.

"Ford vs Ferrari" tells us of cruel sports, about how the racing is terrible and with the incredible speed fury.

The more beautiful, on the background of speed and danger scenes look family comfort. Yeah and overall, the film is incredibly harmonious. It I want to watch, because not only one thing attracts your attention, but and all around. This strange aesthetics, charging you the strongest emotion that one can imagine.

Christian bale as always incredible. To watch him, a real pleasure.

"Ford vs Ferrari" — a truly breathtaking picture, which looks on one breath.

The movie I really liked and exceeded my waiting! To unfortunately the film flopped at rental — with a budget of nearly 100 million dollars, the film grossed only slightly more than 200 million I can't understand — why most of the beautiful fall in the box office? Of course the film impressed and entertained me. Movie on my subjective opinion is the same as emotional and the movie "a Rainy Day in new York", which was released in same 2019.


American automotive designer Carroll Shelby and British rider Ken miles, who together challenged the corporations and our own demons to create a brand new sports car that could compete with the Ferrari the world Cup, held in France the middle of 1960-ies. The story on my opinion it is fresh, but all I ruined the damn trailer! About film faced decided to watch, but the rental came to an end. Had to wait for a good quality and I once a week and watched the trailer. When finally got to see the movie, then it I seemed unnecessarily prolonged, due to the fact that the trailer showed many shots of the junction. Sometimes there was a sense that the heroes no longer have to fool around and began the race. But viewing is not bothered still the moments that showed in the trailer was observed some intrigue.

Main characters:

Between the two heroes felt the chemistry of their relations. For them can survive, because in their life there were many sad moments associated with racing. Both the hero was great and fun. Shelby did a great job on cars "Ford" and Ken was a great driver and racer. Duo these guys turned out to my opinion the best of the that was film.

Secondary characters:

they may not as catchy as important, but still great! The head of the company Ford — as the character is quite funny and charismatic. The enemy in the image of racing car Ferrari (well, who could think) the enemy is quite strong and catching the tension. Other minor characters are also good, but not to discuss.


the machine is very beautiful and nice the frame thanks to the excellent and fun ekranu, yeah still the excellent work of the operator. On how I know all filmed in live without the use of special effects, a huge plus for the film 2019. To find fault with him no sense, all done well with high quality and racy.


long ago, I already do not wrote it in their reviews. But here the authors brilliantly conveyed the atmosphere of the 60-ies. All these cars, the house and other interior refresh the story in film.


for it, too, can praise. Melodies seamlessly woven into the film, there any extra melody, but too stunning songs the movie in my opinion is not have.

The result: this is a great entertaining film that I recommend to everyone. The plot is quite fresh, excellent visual component, the atmosphere of the 60s, a cool soundtrack and a lot more savory, with something for once, I really was no blemishes are happy with the film and can't even want.
