Wife and I both enjoyed the movie. It is not a documentary so don’t expect everything to be 100% accurate but I thought it was very well done. Will probably go see it again just to enjoy the exhaust sounds over the theater sound system.
Made me really miss my GT500
Great movie over all. Had typical movie inaccuracies that few people are going to notice. It's a detailed story over years of actual events with cars that are near impossible to acquire for filming. With most of the key people having passed. I doubt anyone could make a truely accurate film about it these days anyways.
Overall, it was fun , funny, exciting and educational. What more could you ask for?
(The only movie inaccuracy that made me actually laugh was the Cobra fiberglass body sitting in the Shelby factory/airplane hanger. Clearly a white gel coat fresh body) the rest were pretty minor background stuff. Other than the car miles died in wasn't the car that showed him driving.
I thought the movie was great. I was trying to figure out what they could've cut to shorten it up a little bit but couldn't come up with more than about 5 minutes or so. It really didn't seem like it was 2.5 hours.
Great movie took my wife and sons to see it, I know Hollywood has to make a movie entertaining but I just wish they would keep the events accurate at least. Miles was driving at Le Mans in 65, it was his car that had the gearbox failure, I also wish they didn't make Ford out to be the villain and tell what actually happened because it was the FIA that reneged on the deal for the photo finish. I particularly liked them showing Phil Remington coming up with the design to change out the entire brake assembly, ingenuity at its finest.
