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. 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 and it... 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.)

Miika's Movie Diary - 2016 (134 movies items)

"24.1, Netflix Sähkökitara ulisee, taivas punertaa ja Tom Cruise romuttaa autoja radalla. Days of Thunder on niin korni, että sitä katselee ilomielin pieni hymynvire huulillaan. Koska elokuvassa on pakko olla pellin runnomista aina tietyin väliajoin, täytyy Tom Cruisen hermostua takana tööttäilevälle taksikuskille tai setviä Michael Rookerin kanssa erimielisyydet rantahietikolla rymistellen."
