|02.29.20||Internet|| This was... ok. I guess on one hand it's kind of comforting that Hollywood can still make a Hollywood-ass movie that's safe and comfortable but also not really surprising or bold. Very technically capable and nothing really wrong with it but I also kind of didn't need to see anything beyond the trailer. But I think these movies have their place. i might call them Ron Howard movies... Josh Lucas is usually the bad guy, there's a large and decent supporting cast propping up one or two spotlight male leads. Supporting wife or two. Probably based on real life. Problem that you know they'll overcome or else why make the movie... I feel like Apollo 13 sets the gold standard for this type of movie... A Beautiful Mind, Frost/Nixon, Cinderella Man, Rush... you know, Ron Howard movies.|
So I'm not sure if this was as good as Rush, but the racing sequences are well done and I like both Matt Damon and Christian Bale so... it was ok.
