Ford -vs- Ferarri
Chime in if you saw it and your opinions.
IMO, it was quite entertaining and gets a 4 / 5 stars. All performances were good, and Bale did a great job with Ken Miles character, although I have no idea how close it was to the actual man. I know Bale immerses himself in every role, so I suspect he did not just mail that performance in. Damon kind of annoyed me as Shelby, as he did not look or talk like him, but he did enterain. And all I kept thinking of was him in prior roles. He never sold me on the character.
The story, well we all know as fans, although my wife did not and was also entertained, and people who were there say that it is about 60% holly-wood-ized and 40% factual. Which makes sense, as much of this subject matter is no doubt drab for most audiences.
The racing itself as well as the cars used, was the real star for me. They did a commendable job projecting a sense of speed as well as a sense of the dangers due to questionable brakes in that period. If you search Shelby goes Racing on YouTube, there is a documentary from that era. It's cheesy, but still entertaining as well.
