This is the kind of movie that makes it worth going to the movies!

On the surface, you might think that this is a racing movie, and if you're not into cars and racing, why would you want to see it? What we have here is a deep story about a friendship between two men, and the seemingly impossible task of building a Ferrari-beating race car under the corporate shadow of a very large bureaucratic organization, and how that task affected that friendship and their ability to accomplish their goals.

Carroll Shelby is a man who looms large. I would wager that more people know his name than the name of Ken Miles. With Matt Damon playing Shelby, you would think the movie would focus on him, but it actually focuses more on Christian Bale's role of Ken Miles. That's where the story arc concentrates its focus, and it was absolutely the right choice.

This is a car racing movie, and viewers would be disappointed if there weren't great racing sequences. We do get a healthy dose of those, but relatively, they reflect their supporting role to the story line. I liken this to the emphasis that movies should have on story over visual effects. All the CGI that money can buy cannot save a movie devoid of a decent story, and two hours of racing scenes without a strong story foundation would be just as useless. That's not what we got here, and that's a very good thing.

Even if you aren't a racing fan, you'll enjoy this movie. If you are a racing fan, I think you'll enjoy it even a little more.

It's fun, it's dramatic and tense, and it's rewarding. It's well worth your time and the price of admission.
