Gran Turismo Movie First Trailer Neill Blomkamp

Gran Turismo Movie Gets Strong First Impressions From Critics

The upcoming live-action Gran Turismo movie from District 9 director Neill Blomkamp has received some strong first impressions from critics as reviews for the movie are due soon. The Gran Turismo movie is loosely based on the series of racing simulation video games from PlayStation, though it recounts the true story of a teenage player who managed to compete in real-life racing competitions as he rose to become an actual professional driver.

So far, critics seem to love the Gran Turismo movie, particularly praising its intense racing scenes, practical effects and strong direction from Blomkamp. Some have gone as far as to call it “one of, if not the, greatest video game movie ever.” The performances of lead Archie Madekwe and supporting cast David Harbour and Orlando Bloom were also praised.

Collider’s Perri Nemiroff stated:

“Gran Turismo is a solid adaptation! Really dug how they incorporated certain game visuals into the movie — and Neill Blomkamp’s style for the film in general for that matter. Lots of very effective handheld and more intimate camera work with real texture that makes it all feel visceral, and really brings you close to the characters and the action.”

Brandon Davis from said he was “hooked”, especially in the second half:

“The Gran Turismo movie is a winner. The shocking true story told here races laps around most video game titles as films. Found myself hooked, especially in the second half. Slick racing with creative nods for gamers. Great work from David Harbour & Archie Madekwe. Good movie!”

Coy Jandreau from The Reel Rejects said:

“Gran Turismo manages to combine the unbridled passion of the best sports films, the fun details & references of Video Game movies, and the aspirational drive & belief within great biopics. Then mixes them into one of, if not the, greatest video game movie ever.”

Gran Turismo races into cinemas on 11 August 2023.
