Ford vs. Ferrari is a new drama and sport film, telling a legendary story of the 1966 Le Mans race, along with how Henry Ford entered and won the race against Enzo Ferrari. 

It was released on November 15, 2019, earning $64 million after the first week. What made this recent movie such an  incredible hit?

Ford vs. Ferrari brought a new experience to a racing film, with its amazing true story and intense race scenes. The acting was also on par, with Matt Damon playing Carroll Shelby and Christian Bale playing Ken Miles.

The CGI was life-like, along with the theater experience. It felt like I was actually in a race car. The movie may have been a tad bit long, but it was made to its perfect pace. 

The story behind this movie is breathtaking. In just nine days, Ford, Carroll Shelby, and Ken Miles build the fastest race in the world and beat Ferrari in the 1966 24 hour Le Mans race.

In my opinion, I think this is one of my favorite movies of 2019. I am not a big car guy, but this movie impressed me more than I thought it would when I walked into the theater. Everything about it was well-done.

Ford vs. Ferrari has very little flaws. The first one was the length of the movie. Near the end it keeps going on when you expect it to end. 

The other flaw being that the soundtrack was pretty dull for a car show. Maybe it was not my taste in music. It did not get me energized for some scenes where it tried too.

In conclusion, I think Ford vs. Ferrari is a perfect movie for everyone, not just the car guys and girls. Ford vs. Ferrari will be known for decades to come for its amazing story, and how it was told. 

I give this movie a four in a half stars out of five.
