Gran Turismo (out Aug 10) should lure fans of the super-successful video game but as an engaging car racing flick, it’s a few laps behind the likes of Ford v. Ferrari and Rush. Based on a true story, it's the tale of a teenage racing gamer who makes the transition to professional driving in actual cars. David Harbour is the best of the cast with his performance as a straight-talking trainer / father figure. The rest of it feels a little phoney. Grade: B-.
