This isn't a racing documentary, it's a well told story.
Most importantly, don't judge this movie by it's description, it's a lot more than an Audi documentary about how they tried to win some race. I fully understand how this movie can and possibly is perceived as boring without even watching it by most people, but I beg you to give it a chance.
Even if this is the first time you hear about 24 Hours of Le Mans, I guarantee the story will draw you in. It's not about a fast cars going around. 24 Hours of Le Mans is much more than that. You will be quickly introduced to just how much it takes to endure a 24 hour race with average speeds of 260km/h (160mp/h). It's all very personal, and even if you never heard the names of people it's about, you will very quickly start to feel with them and even understand the pressure they have to withstand to succeed, whether it's one of the drivers or members of the crew pit.
The rivalry between Audi and Peugeot was nothing but epic in 2011, and it's a very lucky coincidence that Audi decided to film this documentary that year. The 2011 Le Mans was so epic and the result so unpredictable, that it's almost unbelievable it really happened, and it's not a work of fiction.
I could go on and on about this movie, and how much deeper it is than it might seem at the first glance. All I'm going to say is, give it a chance, if you turn it off after half an hour, no one will blame you, but I honestly doubt you will.
