I’m not surprised the movie did so well during its debut. I’m not surprised at all. Christian Bale and Matt Damon are the two lead stars.

It’s hard to have a bad movie when you have talent like Damon and Bale leading the way. They’re two of the biggest names in the game for a reason.

Plus, people like films about speed and American power. While I haven’t seen the movie yet, the story it’s based off would seem to be all about that angle.

If you can load up the cast and make a movie about American cars interesting, then people will show up to watch it.

That’s just a fact, and the box office numbers back it up.

Anytime a movie like “Ford v Ferrari” crushes the awful Charlie’s Angel reboot, which this did by a mile, then it’s a win for America.

While I might not see this one in theaters, I’ll absolutely be catching it once it gets a digital release. It’s a badass all-American story. That’s all I need to know.
