  •    Yes it is,if you haven't seen it you need to.Story
       is kinda slow but the racing scenes make up for it.
       Graham Hill has a part in it,and if you look you can
       see other drivers of the day like Bandini.See it you
       won't be dissapointed.

  • I have seen this but don't remember much about it, I love the 'old style' racing so in a fit of madness I have asked Santa for a copy!

    Did anyone ever see the F1 film with Sylvester Stallone? I never got round to it, I'm afraid I pre-judged it.

  •     I think your talking about Driven with Stallone.It's
        about Champ Car not F1.Please don't waste your
        time,couldn't watch entire movie.Lousey plot and
        computer graphics racing scenes.

  • Ahhh my pre-judgment was right. I assumed it was about F1 because I remember Stallone wandering around an F1 grid...er...trying to pick up pointers I think???  :DntKnw:

    I suppose you could always go for Days of Thunder  :sick:

  • I can't name a car movie that is my fav, as there are aspects of all of them that lose points whether it's the crappy cg effects, or bad plot, or terrible acting, or the outrageous stunts they try to make you believe.....having said that, if i was to name a movie with pretty good driving and all the other aspects lining up....surprisingly it would be either Ronin (skipp suduths driving) or the bourne identity.  As both movies had people look into making the driving scenes as realistic as possible.

    As for Grand Prix Wizard, i have seen the first scenes but after that, it lost me.....too slow....but too right about the racing, it was great.

        Romephius I agree the acting and storyline
        in Grand Prix lack a lot,you've gotta love
        those old f1 cars :D

        The Monsa scenes show just how hard the
         banking was on the suspensions.Not 100%
         sure but I believe Jackie Stewart did the
         driving for Brian Bedford,that's why his
         charactor always wears full face coverage

  • I saw 'Two Lane Blacktop' with James Taylor and Dennis Wilson the other day. Really liked it, made in the early 70's about racing each other along Route 66, the prize being the other person's car.

    The film is in the same vain as Vanishing Point and Easy Rider so gets a huge  :good: from me!

  • Grand Prix. Far and away the best ever.

    2nd- LeMans, with Steve McQueen. No noticible plot, but lots of good racing footage. John Frankenheimer wanted McQueen for the lead in Grand Prix, but McQueen wanted to make his own racing movie.

    3rd-the 1950's movie The Fast and the Furious. (No relation to the new one) John Ireland stars. Lots of classic sports cars- T series MGs, Jag XK 120s and 150s, TR2s and even a Jowett Jupiter and Nash Healey.

    The all time worst is Stalone's "Driven". It was supposed to be an F1 movie, but Bernie said no way. (Even Bernie can be right every so often) That's why Burt is in the wheelchair - He's supposed to be Sir Frank. Gee, I wonder who the German fellow was supposed to be?
