Editorial Reviews

"...comes on like thunder! It's a winner!" - Joel Siegel, WABC-TV/New York "****Best movie of the summer!" - Steve Kmetko, KCBS-TV/Los Angeles From the engine roar and fever pitch of professional stock car racing, Days of Thunder explodes with the most spectacular racing action ever captured on film. Tom Cruise plays race driver Cole Trickle, whose talent and ambition are surpassed only by his burning need to win. Discovered by businessman Tim Daland (Randy Quaid), Cole is teamed with legendary crew chief and car-builder Harry Hogge (Academy Award. winner Robert Duvall) to race for the Winston Cup at the Daytona 500. A fiery crash nearly ends Cole's career and he must turn to a beautiful doctor (Nicole Kidman) to regain his nerve and the true courage needed to race, to win and to live.

This is a great movie for any Nascar fan. Make sure you totally disregard the "editorial review"
"With Days of Thunder, director Tony Scott tried to do for the Indy 500 what he did for the U.S. Air Force with Top Gun."
Days of Thunder tried to do for the DAYTONA 500, what he did for the US NAVY in Top Gun, Anyone who can't get that right, should not be reviewing movies..

First of all... The movie is quite good, with great performances from Robert Duval, Tom Cruise, and Nicole Kidman. The film has great racing footage (with a few inconsistencies) and is all in all, a good movie... Now let's talk about the DVD... This is one of the best sounding DVD's that I've ever put in to my home theater! The sound in the 5.1 surround sound will absolutely have you looking around for the race car!!!!! As "Cole Trickle" first gets in the car at the vacant raceway, test driving "Rowdy Burns'" car, you will absolutely be beside yourself!! The sound is unreal! You will love this DVD just for the fact of showing off your home theater to friends! The picture has a few flaws, but nothing too noticable! (mainly aspect ratio) That's what gave it the 4 stars instead of 5. Buy this DVD for your theater... You won't be disappointed!!!

Okay, let's talk about plausibility for a minute here. People who don't like this movie seem to talk about the fact that the plot is implausible. How many movies today have plausible plots? Are you telling me that I shouldn't like Aliens because the plot is unreal? Yes, this movie does not have Academny Award winning acting or a thick and deep plot, but it serves the purpose it was made for -- to be a thriller. It combines suspense, action, and fun, and although it's not the best in any of these, it combines them seamlessly into an extremely fun ride. Personally, I just don't want to watch an epic everyday, and if you're looking for a REAL fun ride -- this is THE movie.

If you go into this movie knowing that it's a "Top Gun" action packed need for speed kinda movie, than you'll be thrilled. If you expect Oscar performance than you'll be disappointed. This is a great movie for Lead Footers - good soundtrack and camera work that gets your heart pumping, especially if you get the DVD format matched with a decent Dolby Digital surround system. Perfect compliment to my DVD collections!

░░░░░TOP GUN WITH CARS░░░░░

I re watched Days of Thunder tonight. I like the movie. I really do. It's a bit of a caricature of NASCAR more than a realistic portrayal of it, but I'm totally fine with that. I don't care that Cole Trickle is the only driver or pit crew guy in the movie that isn't a southern bumpkin. I get what they are going for. I know it's not accurate but I don't care. It's an entertaining movie.

What bothers me about it is that it's Top Gun on wheels. Think about it.

Tom Cruise is the best of the best pilot / race car driver.

He gets the chance to fly / drive with the best pilots / race car drivers in the country.

He's a cocky jerk who thinks he knows it all and doesn't need to listen to the rules laid down by the wiser Viper / Harry Hogge

He proves he belongs flying / driving at this level after some rough early problems.

He meets a beautiful and far more mature combat flight instructor / doctor who's professional nature makes her want to keep Maverick / Cole Trickle at arms length. But he's so edgy that Charlie / Claire just can't resist and fall in love with him despite great risk to their professional reputations.

Then in a horrible crash he loses Goose / Rowdy Burns.

After that Maverick / Cole Trickle has trouble re-engaging. He gets back in the F-14 / Stock Car but is hesitant to push the envelope anymore.

Suddenly as he's flying / driving around in circles there's a crash. Other planes / cars are on fire. Smoke is everywhere. Maverick / Cole Trickle needs to focus right now and get his head back in the game.

He pulls it together, finds his nerve, and flies / drives right into the pack of enemy MiGs / other race cars. He comes out successful!

This movie basically demystified NASCAR racing for me. Quite a challenging sport. I was surprised that I actually enjoyed the movie. The relationship between Harry and Cole changes from frustration to understanding. Basically Harry became a father figure type for Cole, in my eyes. The cop scene was hilarious. Nice comical input which carries out with the doctor (which, as Cole, I thought was the same girl). I hate how Cole(Tom Cruise) gets side swiped by Burns facing the opposite direction, and then flips back around with ease. Who does that? Then Cole got into a nightmare of a wreck with Burns. I couldn't believe he survived that. Or that any of them survived that. That car was wrecked. Totaled, especially on the driver's side. Incredible stunts. The wheelchair race scene was hilarious. Burns and Cole raced every chance they got. "Male bonding". The drag racing was quite thrilling. ...and then we take a long pause to have a look at Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman's budding romance. The sponsor, Tim, becomes a douche bag. Cole and the replacement guy, Russ, have a spat on the track, which destroys both cars. Now Cole is faced with a decision leading to the final climax. We are invited into a touching scene where Cole convinces Harry to allow him to race the car again. Words are exchanged with a scuffle of "male bonding". This is reminiscent of my adolescence, when I would try to get the car keys, and convince my parents I was a responsible driver...minus the bonding. Everyone gets back into gear and get's ready for Daytona. Cole and Harry knew the right formula for a perfect victory. My question is: could driving like that really be pulled off in actual races? I'm not so sure. Wouldn't every race car driver strive for a perfect ending such as this?
