Movie Review Ford v Ferrari – Ford v Ferrari gained overwhelmingly and detailed critical reception, with a 92% score at Rotten Tomatoes revealing not just universal recommendation but completely stellar recognition. When audiences and critics all love a film this much and it opens at the top of the box office charts, that’s when actual reviews matter the most. Linking with fans testimonials to become “everyone says it’s great” must-see viewing.
The competition witnessed no match for the super-charged racing film this weekend, where on one side we see as Charlie’s Angeles and The Good Liar they both failed to keep the pace with Ford v Ferrari. (not bad films though, read my review on Charlie’s Angeles). Both films are ending their North American debuts with less than one-third of Ford v Ferrari’s take.
The star cast is also quite strong – The Academy Award-winners Matt Damon and Christian Bale star in FORD v FERRARI. For all the car racing fans outta there, it is based on the extraordinary true story of the visionary American car designer Carroll Shelby (Damon) and the courageous British-born driver Ken Miles (Bale). They both battled together with the corporate intervention, the laws of physics, and their own retired rogues to build an unprecedented race car for Ford Motor Company. Later they take on the dominating race cars of Enzo Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France in 1966. What a remarkable journey and movie it is.
One of the year’s top chart Hollywood contenders raced into theaters full throttle this weekend, as Disney-Fox’s Ford v Ferrari scored the top spot at the box office and a rare perfect grade from audiences.
