    ★★★★

    Rami Malek couldn’t have done a better job speaking in an English accent through dentures. 
    I don’t care if it’s a bad “movie”, it was a great Queen tribute.

    ★★½

    Some good action, some shoddy CG, but overall too religious for my tastes. Time to go watch the Equalizer 2...

    ★★★★½

    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".
