Not just for racing fans or video gamers, the release of Gran Turismo is a story and cinematic experience that all moviegoers can enjoy. Based on the true story of gamer turned professional race car driver Jann Mardenborough, Gran Turismo follows Jann’s rise through the Nissan driver’s academy and up to his first 24 Hours of Le Mans. Directed by Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Elysium, and Chappie), this two-hour action-packed movie has excellent character arcs, visual effects, and a story that keeps watchers engaged. In this Instant Reaction episode of the MovieBuffs Podcast, host Tyler Valencia goes through all the details of the movie and then discusses his favorite elements of the story.
One element that Tyler discusses is Neill Blomkamp’s directing. Having been out of the limelight for a few years and primarily directing science-fiction-based movies, Blomkamp hits a home run by integrating visual effects and character development. Blomkamp’s background in visual effects comes through in his movies as its integration is never overbearing or an afterthought. In Gran Turismo, the visual effects provide insight into Jann’s mindset and how he sees the racetrack.
This movie is a great watch for all moviegoers and fun for racing enthusiasts.
