    Review: Ron Howard's 'Rush' Starring Chris Hemsworth, Daniel Bruhl & Olivia Wilde

    It's only "rebels, lunatics and dreamers" that decide to get behind the wheel and race for a living, so quips Austrian driver Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl) in the early moments of Ron Howard's "Rush," and there's an undeniable logic to his observation.

    Ben Affleck may be on a roll in 2013, with Oscar-winning "Argo," and his casting as Batman in Zack Snyder's Superman-Batman installment, as well as the co-lead in David Fincher's "Gone Girl," but "Runner Runner" won't go down as another victory in his banner year.
