I knew when it was announced that Christian Bale and Matt Damon were going to star in a film about the rivalry between Ford and Ferrari that it was going to be a good movie. Turns out, I wasn’t wrong.
Ford v. Ferrari was one of eight films to get nominated for Best Picture last year and deservedly so. The movie tells a well-told story of the rivalry between the car companies and the classic bromance between two men who have a common purpose; that being highlighting Ford as the greatest car company that it could be at the time.
Based on the true story of race car driver Ken Miles, this movie never stops to bore you. It’s constantly keeping you on your toes, whether the scene is taking place on the race track or in a restaurant.
The screenplay is well-written and had me laughing an occasion of times. The actors cast for every role was perfect. And even though I would still award Parasite for Best Picture (for its blatant originality) this was definitely one of the best films of 2019 and is a definite must-watch.
I’m giving this 97 out of 100 and 4.5 out of 5 stars. It is darn near perfect and I honestly didn’t expect it to be that good.
It is currently available to stream on HBO Max.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
