[Opens Aug. 25 in theaters.] Neill Blomkamp's intriguing, entertaining, factually inspired, action-packed, inspirational, well-acted, family-friendly, fast-paced, 135-minute biographical film based on the Japanese-created racing video game in which racecar loving, teenage store employee Jann Mardenborough (Archie Madekwe), who lives with his skeptical parents (Djimon Hounsou and Geri Halliwell) and younger brother (Daniel Puig) in Cardiff, Wales, finds himself competing in England with other Gran Turismo simulator virtual players (Darren Barnet, Pepe Barroso, Harki Bhambra, et al.) with a chance to attend a Nissan-sponsored racecar GT Academy promoted by a marketing executive (Orlando Bloom) and to train with a former racecar driver turned chief mechanical engineer (David Harbour) to become a real-world, professional racecar driver.
