Excellent depiction of endurance racing in the sixties and the risks taken, with all the fatal accidents and serious crashes. However, the frequent strong language should have upped the rating from a PG-13 to R. Do not allow your children to watch this. Not to say this is a bad movie. It is a great depiction of Ford's overthrow of Ferrari's dominance of endurance racing with the iconic GT40.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
