Gran Turismo is a fantastic live-action representation of the hyper-successful video game franchise and the racecar drivers it would eventually inspire. Taking the underdog story to video game simulation and racecar driving, this film smartly reaffirms the odds stacked against a kid who’s played video games his whole life and how those skills will translate in an actual super car. For all the simulation in the world, there’s nothing like being in a real car to race some of the world’s greatest tracks in several different weather conditions. However, there’s also something to be said for the obsession with detail that many gamers possess and the hundreds of hours they log customizing these racecars with up-to-date schematics and data.
