Rush movie based on a true story. At the very beginning, a voiceover reveals - "Of the 25 racers that participate in the Formula One races every year, two die". What a morbid way to start! Set in the backdrop of Formula One racing, the film documents the personality conflict and rivalry of two famous racers Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl) and James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth). Both with diametrically opposite characteristics; James Hunt is the charismatic and reckless English playboy, whereas Niki Lauda is the studious introvert with German Austrian upbringing, who takes calculated risks. The only thing common between the two is their passion for motor racing.
