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. 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.)

A rebellious hotshot race car driver, Cole Trickle (Cruise) dreams of NASCAR fame ... read more

"First viewing - May 17th Days of Thunder was not a film that I was interested in at the time of its release, though I do recall getting toys of the cars in it from a fast food chain at the time. When I saw the cast and that it was directed by Tony Scott, I figured it might be worthwhile. Eh, not so much. I mean, I wouldn't say it's a bad movie but there's nothing present to get me emotionally invested. The only character who gets fully fleshed out is Robert Duvall's, which is kind of a problem "

"March 22nd Directed by: Tony Scott Honestly, there's a lot of great stuff visually, it's helped by the fact that the 90's were cool, and I was watching the pan & scan LaserDisc; a lot of things look better when you cut the image into a square. Of course, other times it's distracting when half of someone's face isn't in the shot. Otherwise, this is an unusually slow paced sports drama with a lot of ham-fisted Nicole Kidman romance. Tom Cruise is a good lead for pretty much any film, he has star"
