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.)

When Critics and Audiences Disagree (215 movies items)

"Critics: 38% Audiences: 61% Critics Consensus: Days of Thunder has Tom Cruise and plenty of flash going for it, but they aren't enough to compensate for the stock plot, two-dimensional characters, and poorly written dialogue."

"15.2. Mietin, mitä haluaisin lainata kirjastosta. Kävin päässäni läpi about kaikki Suomessa julkaistut mahdollisuudet ja varasin Days of Thunderin... Tony Scottin miehisiä leikkikaluja kuvaava Top Gunin henkinen jatko-osa, Days of Thunder, kertoo Tom Cruisesta, joka kruisailee kruisereilla. NASCAR-autot sanovat vroom. Suosikkikohtauksessani taksikuski kolhaisee Cruisen autoa liikenteessä, mistä seuraa takaa-ajokohtaus, jossa taksikuski ajaa kaasu pohjassa Cruisea pakoon heittäen per"

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.)

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

A Complete review of Tony Scott's work (17 movies items)

" Cast : Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, Robert Duvall, Randy Quaid, Cary Elwes, Michael Rooker, John C. Reilly What was it about? Cole Trickle enters the high-pressure world of Nascar racing. He's a hot driver with a hot temper, and this attitude gets him into trouble not only with other drivers, but members of his own team as well. My two cents: It is probably the worst movie Tony Scott has made in his career. The biggest issue, in my opinion, is how can you make an exciting movie abo"
