REVIEW | Gran Turismo

Gran Turismo presents a captivating and adrenaline fuelled racing film. It delves into NISSAN NISMO’s triumphant achievement at the 24 Hours of LE MANS and offers a compelling biographical portrayal of Jann Mardenborough. This film showcases the remarkable journey of a British Esports Gran Turismo player’s transformation into a professional racing sensation.

The entire cast delivered exceptional performances, with a standout connection between the racer and his mentor, David Harbour, portraying Jack Salter. The dynamic portrayal of Salter’s motivational influence on Jann Mardenborough, played by Archie Madekwe, was truly inspiring. The Visual Effects and CGI were breathtakingly impressive, resulting in a strikingly authentic visual experience. The heart-pounding high-speed racing sequences were authentically captured at real-world locations, featuring an array of exotic race cars from around the globe.

The meticulous direction captured every angle with intricate detail, reminiscent of the precision seen in Top Gun Maverick. The film masterfully weaves a tale of intense rivalry and neck-and-neck racing, with a focus on authenticity rather than excessive drama. Although some fictional romantic elements were incorporated, the core of the story revolves around the trio of characters: Jann Mardenborough, Danny Moore, and Jack Salter. This strategic approach by the creators eliminates unnecessary melodrama, ensuring the narrative propels forward alongside the thrilling races leading up to the climactic moments.

From start to finish, the film keeps viewers on the edge of their seats, delivering 100% entertainment for audiences of all ages. A must-watch that promises an engaging and exhilarating experience for everyone.”
