Friday, September 17, 2021

Disappointing Having followed F1 for 25 years (including the Schumacher years), there was nothing really new here, especially if you've read James Allen's The Edge of Greatness. This is mainly a view of an OCD, narcissist who pushed work ethic in F1 to never-before-seen levels. It doesn't cover many of greatest moments of driving, many of most notorious moments, and tries to make us care about family life that heretofore was always kept preciously private. There's a dearth of information about his accident and the aftermath. Overall, I found it a boring documentary and all I can take away is that Michael is very lucky to have a family that love him and will do everything for him. Did it make me care more about Michael - no, every shred of humanity that they try to show is wiped out by every shot of his obsessive, workaholic, drive to win.

Essential viewing for F1 fans. Compelling look into the life of Michael Schumacher, and the key moments within the timeline of his career. There is contribution from his parents, wife, 2 children and brother, as well as former team mates and drivers.It gives us a good insight into the person he was, but glosses over some elements such as his crusade off the track over driver safety, and the work he did to set the foundations for Mercedes recent success.At the very least this is a wonderful reminder of the champion that he was, and it's a joyful experience watching highlights of some of his most entertaining races!

Underwhelming performance A bit of a meh Documentary about Michael Schumacher. Most of the runtime is just people saying how great he was at racing, which we already knew from the start. Even his prime years of racing are skimmed through fairly quickly, and you don't find out much about him outside his racing career. I wanted to learn more what Schumacher was like outside his career, but it's mostly archive footage and interviews about how awesome he was as a racer. Very little is covered about the issues and conflicts he had, and it felt kind of artificial and sanitised in many places.5/10.

Falls short of presenting a picture of the guy beyond what was already known Hanns-Bruno Kammertöns, Vanessa Nöcker, and Michael Wech's aptly-titled Michael Schumacher documentary, Schumacher, speeds through years and titles without diving too deeply into any significant details. It is a heartwarming and riveting reflection on the Formula 1 icon, supported by the Schumacher family and hugely benefits from their database of photographs and home movies, but it falls short of presenting a picture of the guy beyond what was already known.

Our german hero Nice drive through the Formula One career of Schumi, from his first start, the championships with Benetton till his first and very important title with Ferrari. Mixed with pictures and videos of him with family and friends and a very emotional ending about his accident and statements and insights of his family. Very well made.Even if you are only 6 years old or you have absolutely nothing to do with motorsports, everybody in Germany knows the name "Schumacher". He is our german hero. Thank you Schumi.
