Saw it last night at the only 4k IMAX in New England in Reading Mass. Entertaining for sure and more importantly to me I hope it sparks interest in these cars and the Shelby American story amongst the youngsters who see it.

Went to the first showing today.... IMAX definitely the place to see it. Got my heart pounding and got me pumped up!

Thanks - will be looking into that for the next viewing  8) :)

Here's the shop that built most of the replicas used in the filming, all in all they did a great job of at least outwardly replicating the P4 Ferrari's. Had fun identifying the non Ford/Ferrari makes within the race sequences as well.

Took my team from work yesterday. All 30   or younger.
I'll see on Monday if anyone "gets it". Their biggest thrill is a new iPhone.

At the theater right this very moment. Opted for Imax experience. Two minutes to go to 3:30 start.

Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

Finished the movie now having a celebratory dinner at Maggianos.  The movie was pensive, exhilarating, introspective, triumphant, thoughtful, an all round brilliantly executed.  Lighting, camera angles, well done.  Academy award worthy on so many levels.  Go see it!

There is some talk about CGI in this movie.  Well cut to 4:44 of this youtube and it sure doesn't look like CGI to me...Maybe the scene with a car going airborne but wait a minute.  Maybe not.  See 5:55.  Matt Damon was being serious about the no CGI.
