Ford v Ferrari
On a superficial level, Ford vs Ferrari offers a routine act that focuses on corporate rivalry while also highlighting how often people go mere pawns in a big bad game execution. The first half is a little slow, but this is warranted as it adds depth to the on-screen action.
The scenes with Christian Bale turned out well and mostly work because of their intensity. Matt Damons’ sequences are good too, but may not fit the Le Mans 24 Hours, the big highlight of the second half.
It was done quite well and started in the most unexpected of ways. It’s also a twist towards the end and this adds a new dimension to the movie. While the racing sequences were executed reasonably well, the scenes with the Christian Bales family didn’t make an impact. and stunning and might leave some moviegoers with tears in their eyes.


Christian Bale is the heart and soul of Ford versus Ferrari and delivers a compelling performance that highlights his characters’ struggles quite well. He also manages to downplay things a bit in the softer sequences, which proves he’s a pretty versatile actor. Matt Damon too.
However, it pales in comparison to the runner-up star. Caitríona Balfe has practically nothing to do in Ford against Ferrari and therefore cannot prove herself. The supporting cast, which includes names like Tracy Letts, Noah Jupe, and Remo Girone, is decent.
