Film of the Month: Le Mans 66
See it at Cineworld at Resorts World
Ever wondered what a mix of Mad Men and Top Gear would be like? Us neither, but that doesn’t mean this old-fashioned flick doesn’t deliver the goods. Christian Bale and Matt Damon are on hand as the key members of the Ford team for the titular race, who must get over their chalk-and-cheese styles to defeat the dominant Ferrari and their affront to American engineering knowhow. Sure, it follows the same template as everything from Mighty Ducks to Bend it Like Beckham, but the leads are excellent as ever, and a hefty budget means the racing scenes are phenomenal. The highlight, however, is the depiction of the Ferrari team — only a slightly less caricatured view than Sacha Baron Cohen’s French racer in Talladega Nights. See it at Cineworld at Resorts World.
