What we think

[The film] doesn't push the boundaries of the biopic genre as much as it offers up a highly accessible, well-oiled machine with enough old-fashioned charm to carry it over the finish line.

What others think

This is a standard-issue, middleweight biopic-type film, which comes complete with the now mandatory three factual sentences over the closing credits and the black-and-white photographs of the real-life people involved looking less attractive than the Hollywood stars who played them.
Peter Bradshaw The Guardian
[The film] excels at evoking the sheer thrill of the race - 'a body moving through space and time,' as one character says - and it’s compelling enough in those moments to make the case that nothing beats the thrill of competition.
Eric Kohn IndieWire
Even if you’re not a motorhead, chances are you’ll be thrilled by this high-velocity bromance, powered by zesty acting and Mangold’s meticulous direction.
Nick De Semlyen Empire
It’s a handsome, entertaining yarn – perhaps not one for the history books, but certainly enjoyable.
