It took me a while to see ‘Ford v Ferrari’ (I think the title in European markets is ‘Le Mans 66’) because it doesn’t seem to be the kind of movie that I would like. Its elements are things that do not really interest me – racing, cars – two things that have no appeal to me whatsoever. But ok, sure, the completist in me saw it because it could be some kind of player during awards season. I mean, I like its two main actors enough – Matt Damon and Christian Bale.
But I should have listened to my instincts. This is a good, solid film, but I was bored to tears by it. The film has too much testosterone, and not in a good way for me. I had no interest in the story, in the car, in the race. I couldn’t care less about the characters and if they won or lost their races. My time is so precious, and I felt like it was wasted viewing this film.
