Movie Review – Ferrari

Read Time:2 Minute, 35 Second

Ferrari suffers from trying to tell too many stories. Is it a story about the evolution of a married relationship over time and how they struggle with the recent death of their son? Or is it about the Ferrari company, or racing, or even the relationship between a father and his illegitimate son? As in real life, a lot is going on all at once during this movie, but the movie doesn’t see any of these stories through to their resolution. Everything is left incomplete with no takeaway.

The acting by the main cast was good to very good. Penélope Cruz’s performance is the one that stands out to me, mostly due to having a character with a large emotional palette. Adam Driver was good, and what I noticed most was his mannerisms, as he emulated the late Enzo Ferrari.

Love love love this app. And, after receiving an email from Dan (the creator) that read as though it was a one-on-one communication sent only to me, I felt compelled to leave a long-overdue review. My son and I are absolutely addicted to this app…especially since I discovered it at the onset of the Marvel craze. Now we use it to confirm if there is a scene following the credits. Often times, we are the ONLY ones there watching the bonus scene…and it cracks us up. LOL! Thanks, RunPee!

There is one particular scene that pissed me off. The car crash, which happened at the 1-hour 48-minute mark, was completely out of pl ace for this movie. It’s like sticking in a horrifying and gruesome scene from a war movie. That’s fine if you’re watching a graphic war movie. That’s what you signed up for. But this movie doesn’t show a drop of blood until that scene and then we are suddenly thrust into seeing… I’m not even going to write what you see. Just don’t look.

Dear, director/editor,

What in the F#$% were you thinking? You released this movie on Christmas Day. People don’t need to see this shit. There’s no upside in showing this. It isn’t going to change any policy or save any lives today because this event happened 60+ years ago. Have some f#$%ing decency and edit this crap out.

Race

Aside from the crash scene, I found the race anticlimactic because it was impossible to figure out which car belonged to which team. There was no suspense, just scenes of cars racing down streets and through cities.

Conclusion

There you go. If you want to see a movie that tells too many stories and doesn’t properly resolve anything, then this is your ticket.

Grade: D

About The Peetimes: I have three Peetimes plus an Alert Peetime near the end. I think the first and third Peetimes are the best. The middle one isn’t bad, but there is more emotion than the others. I personally can’t stress enough to look away during the Alert Peetime. It is only 55 seconds long. No one needs to see this stuff on Christmas Day.

There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Ferrari.

    I have to disagree with you on this one, Dan.
    This was a great representation of a brief time in one man’s complicated life. I’m sorry you found the crash as disturbing as you did, but it was indeed integral to the film. It nearly destroyed Ferrari’s career and did end that race.

    1. I’m not saying they didn’t need to have the crash scene. I’m saying they didn’t need to make it as graphic as it was.

    Sadly, the accident scene in the movie is very accurate to what actually happened in 1957.

    1. I’m sure it is. I looked up the Wikipedia article about it when I got home. So tragic. And it wasn’t a one-off. I remember somewhat recently there was a NASCAR wreck that somehow a tire or something cleared the safety fence and went into the stands.
