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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the editorial review March 22, 2002
By A Customer
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..

4.0 out of 5 stars SOUND, SOUND, SOUND, SOUND!!!!!!!!! March 9, 2001
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!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Boxed up fun January 15, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining race car drama, which is actually good. October 31, 2002
When a businessman by the name of Tim Daland (Randy Quaid) needs a new driver for the chance to win the Winston Cup at the Daytona 500. Tim is recruiting his old partner-Chef Crew and Car Builder Harry Hogge (Oscar-Winner:Robert Duvall) to train, young ambitious race driver Cole Trickle (Tom Cruise)-who has the talent for and his burning need to win for his life on the race. When one race, Cole's has survived for a fiery crash, a young brillant doctor (Nicole Kidman), who saved his life. When Cole actually falls in love with the Doctor. Then he puts all his energy, heart and soul to prove himself that he's a winner.
Directed by Tony Scott (Top Gun, Enemy of the State, Spy Game) actually made a fun (If at times-slow moving) flick. From a story by Oscar-Winner:Robert Towne and Cruise. Towne wrote the screenplay, which he acutally avoid most the chichés but it's quite flawed because of Cruise's one-note performance. It's the Performances from the Supportive Cast and Action Race Sequences outshines Cruise's Role, which is actually a good thing. Duvall is Solid as Usual and also Micheal Rooker as One of Cruise's race buddies are the stand-outs in this. Cary Elwes, Fred Dalton Thompson and a young John C. Reilly are in small roles in this one. This was a Box-Office Hit in the Summer of 1990. This is not, one of Cruise's Best films but is one of the few Stand-Out films from Scott. Watch for the late:Don Simpson (which he also produced this film in a cameo). Panavision. Grade:B+.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great movie, great cast, fast action December 30, 2010
By LastWon
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Nascar films are tough because by nature the sport can be boring, but the cast and storyline here certainly engage the audience. The movie has great action and Tom Cruise's performance is great even if you aren't a fan of his. There are some classic one liners from Randy Quaid and other supporting cast and this is a must own for Nascar fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars I don't expect Filet Mignot when I order a hamburger January 10, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Steer Clear of the Wall November 30, 2010
By Lei
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?
