Certain to be one of the classic racing movies, this effort is a very entertaining biopic of Lee Iacocca getting Carroll Shelby (and via Carroll, Ken Miles) to design and build the Ford GT40 in the mid-sixties to challenge Ferrari’s grip on the race track circuit. The camerawork, the acting, the script, all become one as we watch the result of all of the efforts the cast and crew went through to bring us this exciting feature. Little noticed will be many of the sons of the racers in the sixties are driving the cars we see in the movie. Also, the cars in the movie are continuation cars, not replicas or special effect items, but real cars (https://www.latimes.com/business/story/2019-11-07/those-classic-shelby-race-cars-in-ford-v-ferrari-arent-what-they-seem).
The cars in the movie are the same cars raced in the mid-sixties, they were just manufactured more recently but are exactly the same. In spite of that, they had to hold up to a grueling film schedule of going at speeds in excess of 200 miles an hour for extended periods of time. also note, Enzo Ferrari was referred to as The Assassin as he lost the lives of so many of his drivers. The cars, all of them, went fast but braking technology was nothing compared to current cars performance and race car drivers were dying on average of one a week.
This movie just flies by in no time and you feel as if you are in the car with the driver.
Time raced by too fast
I just want more; the movie was so good and gripping
