      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Gran Turismo's brisk action and feel-good underdog drama are undermined by its loose telling of the fact-based story, but this is still a generally solid racing movie.

      Jenny Nulf Austin Chronicle Gran Turismo is perhaps a more basic film for Blomkamp, but a welcome reminder that his breakthrough first feature District 9 wasn’t a fluke. Rated: 3/5 Nov 17, 2023 Full Review Dwight Brown DwightBrownInk.com Credit the visuals and pacing to Blomkamp’s savvy, cinematographer Jacques Jouffret’s keen eye, editors Austyn Daines and Colby Parker Jr.’s precision cuts and dazzling driving stunts by the real Jann himself. Rated: 3/4 Aug 30, 2023 Full Review Sara Michelle Fetters MovieFreak.com All of the racing is either over much too quickly, showcases no sense of drama or pace, or is completely devoid of anything approaching viscerally kinetic energy. Rated: 1.5/4 Aug 30, 2023 Full Review Sarah Knight Adamson Sarah's Backstage Pass I enjoyed the inspirational guidance of Jack Salter (David Harbour), as he guided the young, inexperienced driver to trust his instincts and believe in himself. Rated: 3/4 Feb 13, 2024 Full Review Ruth Maramis FlixChatter Film Blog I enjoyed the rapport between Madekwe + Harbour as underdogs in elite racing. The racing scenes are well-staged and use CGI in an effective way to showcase the video game elements. Rated: 3.5/5 Feb 2, 2024 Full Review Aglaia Berlutti El estímulo Gran Turismo: Based on a True Story, the melodramatic biopic adaptation of the video game released in a dozen countries before its arrival in the United States, disappointed international critics.

      Teresa W Not a gamer, but the show was entertaining. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/02/24 Full Review Karla Good Sunday movie, had fun and intense moments. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/15/24 Full Review Marlis H It was pretty good. I was surprised by the diverse age group of the audience that showed up to watch it. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/03/24 Full Review Frank T Way better than I thought it would be. A little bit cheesy in parts but it had some good emotional scenes and the racing action was pretty well done. The main actor did a wonderful job, as did the the guy who played Jack Salter. The fact that it was all (pretty much) for real made it all the more better. A worthwhile movie to see. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/14/23 Full Review Mia Edge of your seat ! Heart racing Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/08/23 Full Review Lamar I loved the movie I didn’t know it was based on a true story played this game so much as a kid can’t wait to watch it again Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/06/23 Full Review Read all reviews
