Racing flick, with heart

You've got to respect a movie that can make NASCAR look watchable. The chemistry between Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise was great in this movie, the racing footage was top notch and filmed at actual NASCAR events, and the story was compelling enough, although a bit of a cookie-cutter formula to it.

An average movie

By now, I have seen all the movies directed by Tony Scott and it is probably the worst one he has made so far. I mean, I have seen this movie like ages ago but I still remember that the whole thing was pretty boring... The biggest issue, in my opinion, is how can you make an exciting movie about a sport like Nascar racing?!? I mean, no offense, but you only have those guys making circles for hours... read more

"You and Rowdy have the same sickness, it's called denial and it's probably going to kill you both."

The racing sequences in Days of Thunder are fantastic. Everything else is borderline unwatchable. That's about all you need to know about this early Tom Cruise vehicle. (Excuse the pun.)

"26.03.2014 "You and Rowdy have the same sickness, it's called denial and it's probably going to kill you both." This is no Top Gun, but it's still a pretty fun Tom Cruise flick. It's such an incredibly late-80's/early-90's movie and i love those. The kind of movie that could never have been made in any other decade. This is a fun racing film, but nothing more than that."

A rebellious hotshot race car driver, Cole Trickle (Cruise) dreams of NASCAR fame and fortune. Recruited by car dealer Tim Daland (Randy Quaid), Cole is given the opportunity to drive for an underfunded race team, supervised by veteran mechanic and crew chief Harry Hogge (Robert Duvall). Cole and Harry initially clash due to their dissimilar racing philosophies, but Cole eventually adapts, which allows him to win a string of races and become a favourite for NASCAR, irritating the competi” read more

Films and the critics who hate them (743 movies items)

"Days of Thunder zigzags between exploiting Cruise's likable grin and charming vulnerability and portraying him as an emotional loser. It's an uncertain and unsatisfying mix. - Variety Staff, Variety In 1990 the people who brought you Top Gun -- Tom Cruise, director Tony Scott, and producers Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer -- figured out a way to take more of your money, and it involved stock-car racing. - Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader t's one thing to market a film solely on the stren"
