"Brilliant insight into a very gifted and genuine man"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Fantastic perspective by the director, as if I was along for the ride as Bruce's journey unfolded before him. I`m sure any car enthusiast, well anyone for that matter would appreciate the passion, ingenuity, and dedication this New Zealander Bruce McLaren his family and friends had for the sport of motor racing and design.

"an interesting film"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I thought it would be a more of movie about Bruce McLarens life re-enacted. But was more of a documentary with lots of his friends / other drivers / wife etc telling the story and lots of old film snippets. Despite it not being very flashy and dramatic, I found the story fascinating and really enjoyed watching this film.

Description

From acclaimed director Roger Donaldson, comes then incredible true story of the man behind one of the greatest brands in international motorsport, McLaren. A fearless racing driver, a visionary and brilliant engineer, Bruce McLaren was a humble New Zealander who became a superstar in the glamorous jet-set world of 1960s Formula One motor racing.

This is the story of a New Zealander who founded the McLaren Motor Racing team and showed the world that a man of humble beginnings could take on the elite of motor racing and win.

Critic Reviews

McLaren stands as more a celebration than sombre eulogy … and should hold differing types of appeal to various generations.”
 – New Zealand Herald

“Taking a leaf out of Asif Kapadia's award winning documentary Senna (2010), Donaldson offers a comprehensive account of the highs and lows in the man's short, yet fruitful career.”
 – HeyUGuys

McLaren is a fine documentary made by Ballarat-born NZ filmmaker Roger Donaldson.”
 – The Australian
