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.)

Rotten on Rotten Tomatoes (210 movies items)

"39% Consensus: Days of Thunder has Tom Cruise and lots of flash going for it, but they aren't enough to compensate for the stock plot, two dimensional characters and poorly written dialogue."

"watched: June 09, 2014 I don't know if I wanted to see this movie, but it was just on TV and I decided to try. It was not bad, definitely felt the chemistry between Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. Racing scenes were also pretty cool. I don't know why, but when Tom was young irritated me so badly..."

Movies i have watched in 2014 (193 movies items)

"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."
