I had a fear that Denzel had become typecast into a capable loner with a vengeance. His movies were becoming predictable - was his career heading down the Steven Seagal path, destined to pump out shitty movies with him holding a gun in the poster? But then, BAM! Everything became awesome, and who cares if this is his thing? The fight scene in Home Depot was crazy and original. Denzel has found his niche. If his career continues with these…
When Ayrton Senna describes winning a race like taking a powerful drug, you really believe him. Race after race, as he stands on the first place podium pouring champagne over himself, he has a look of pure ecstasy on his face. He loved Motorsport and he loved winning.
His team doctor recollected Senna's humility being so rare amongst race drivers, and you can sense his personal and professional growth as the film progresses. It drew me in and left me gutted knowing where it ended.
This movie is so great, I'm amazed I never saw it growing up. Modern action movies can't keep my attention like this one could, and this was the extended edition. I'm not sure what was left out in the theatrical cut, but each scene in this seemed essential.
Also, now I finally understand the context of "they mostly come at night... mostly".
