    Saw it today and thought it was great. I actually didn’t fall asleep which I normally do in the reclining leather seats at the cinema we go to. Unlike Rush very little CGI. Must get a dvd copy when available.

    Kay neither ! those seats are great. I thought it was a fantastic film, if had been released in the summer I’d have been out in the car to frighten the traffic. I would buy the DVD but will now just borrow Dek’s copy instead...

    Went to see it tonight and took my two lads aged 14 and 12. We all really enjoyed it.

    Makes me want to finish my build even more now!

    I saw it two weeks ago and took my mate in the Cobra for the full experience. Both wives also went and they thought it was a great film.

    A few little quibbles but overall it gets a 10 from me !!

    In your dreams David! It’s on my Christmas list and not leaving the house. I did feel like you and just wanted to get in the Cobra for a thrash after seeing the film. If it ever dries up before the salt goes down I’ll take it out now it doesn’t need taxing.

    If you have Netflix, also worth watching The 24 hr War which is a factual documentary of the story of Ford's quest for racing fame. Some great interviews with some of those involved and wonderful period footage. Also includes some bits that aren't in the film.
