I could only talk one of my kids into seeing it with me last weekend. He and I really enjoyed it. Sounded like a good movie but wasn't exactly sure what to expect. I had my doubts about some of the actors like Matt Damon but they all did a great job. Movie was long but didn't feel like it. Story was very entertaining and you really got into the characters. Ken Miles was a lot of fun to watch. The racing scenes were a bit Hollywood but that's okay. What surprised me was how well they turned a car story, heavy into racing and made it into a great story everyone would enjoy.

Quoted from ismiglif:

Some related viewing is now available on Netflix:
"The 24 Hour War" was released a few years ago and I thought it was great. Worth a rewatch now after FvF.

Just watched this yesterday - lots of additional fascinating info regarding the actual Ford vs Ferrari competition!

Interesting how Leo Beebe, the Ford exec "villain" in the movie, isn't really mentioned in this documentary.

I went with my son yesterday and we both enjoyed this movie. My stepfather is into and owns several vintage cars and motorcycles and has taken my son to a few car shows. I know some of the facts are distorted but it was a good movie.

Agree - his "decision" is a little more important to the Ken Miles story arc than the overall race I guess.

Incidentally, I went over to Vashon Island last Saturday to pickup a machine and their little one screen theater there had a special showing of FvF the night before with a post film Q&A with Josh Lucas, the actor who played Beebe. He must be a local guy. Missed it by a day.

That would be cool to attend! According to their website it's happening (again?) this Friday.

Although he apparently lived in lots of places growing up, he attended/graduated high school in Gig Harbor and his mother subsequently lives on Vashon.

Dude. I was totally crying at the end. Man I thought it was great. I'd totally watch it again and recommend it to any gear head

Yeah me too. I'm a huge Shelby and Ford GT fan and an owner. I knew the whole story before I even went and saw the movie but I was still wiping tears at the end. Just a great show.

Saw this with my friend last night at a budget theater before it left theaters permanently.

Her and I were both really glad we did!

My experience on the subject is limited, hers more so, but we were both so damn engaged by the passionate friendship and perseverance these two men showed with and for one another. Great story about fighting against all odds, loyalty not just when it's convenient, and two people sharing focus.

Felt like a movie from another era frankly, and sadly. No agendas. No forced casting. Just an isolated story, told as it should and needed to be told.

Congrats to everyone involved, and man Damon and Bale both deserve more recognition for their roles.

Just looked, and crazy that they didn't receive Oscar noms. James Mangold, neither, but at least Best Picture, Editing, Sound Editing and Sound Mixing.

Thanks @Odin for making this thread, and for everyone else for talking about, and keeping this out there in the discussion ether!

Great movie, it was a blast!

It was certainly refreshing to see swagger and confidence, combined with excellence and perseverance.

I think for me, in an age when everyone wishes to state they are excellent on a global platform, it's astonishing to see when excellence only gained a voice, via deeds and actions on a global platform, and not an artificially digitized one.

Glad you liked it! Believe me, it takes a lot for me to get excited about any movie these days.

I'm still wondering where they got all those 1963 Falcons on the assembly line from.

Went last weekend with my wife to have lunch with some friends of hers. Saw Ford vs Ferrari playing at the cheap theatre and had her drop me off there instead.

I think this be a must stop and watch wherever it is movie on TV for me in the future.

Side topic. I wish there was a time machine, or even just a rewind button just to watch the past. But I'd love to go back and just wonder some assembly lines. Would love to see some cars, or even WWII airplanes being built.

Here in Indy we have the Stutz building. It's where they made the Stutz cars, and you can currently walk through the building as its now shared office spaces. You can still smell the grease and oil. All the car lifts are still in there. Some still working. We also have an old Model T or A, ( forget which one) that they're turning into a high end business building. I missed the chance to walk through it as part of a photo tour a couple years ago before they started working on it.
