Rush (2013)

Rush - quad poster, Hemsworth, Bruhl, HowardDirector: Ron Howard

Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Daniel Bruhl, Olivia Wilde, Alexandra Maria Lara

Cert: 15

Running time: 123mins

Year: 2013

The lowdown: Ron Howard shifts into high gear for a riveting retelling of James Hunt and Niki Lauda’s fierce rivalry on and off the 1970s Formula 1 track. Boasting pole position performances from Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl as Hunt and Lauda, two very different men with different approaches to racing, it stands as a strong contender for Howard’s best work to date. A great movie even for those not interested in F1 (or perhaps especially so), the race for Oscar starts here.

Welcome to the Punch

WTTP_Quad_Art 4Director: Eran Creevy

Cast: James McAvoy, Mark Strong, David Morrissey, Angela Riseborough, Johnny Harris, Peter Mullan

Cert: 15

Running time: 96mins

The lowdown: Writer/director/Ridley Scott protégé Eran Creevy follows micro-budgeted winner Shifty with an ambitious crime epic.  James McEvoy and Mark Strong lead a strong British cast and there is plot and gunfights to spare, but what Welcome to the Punch lacks is a ring of authenticity or voice of its own.  Creevy remains an undoubted talent to watch, but will need to bring something fresh to his style if it’s going to replace his substance.
