MOVIE REVIEW: FORD V FERRARI (James Mangold, 2019)

D0E15796-E5C3-4BA5-BDB6-8D30251E57E6

As someone who wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between a carburetor and radiator (and had the best nap during The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift), I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this racing drama slash male ego-fest.

Best viewed in a theater with excellent sound system. I watched it in the ATMOS cinema of Ayala Malls Manila Bay (sponsor me please!!) and I braced for impact every single time a race car zoomed past the screen.

Terrific ensemble cast led by Matt Damon and Christian Bale (“The bloody door won’t close!!!”), with the latter probably headed for his nth Oscar nomination.

Rating: ★★★★☆
