Customer Reviews

A great movie to watch while you wait for the Nascar season to begin.

If you want to show off your new DVD player, play this movie for your friends, they will be amazed at how great it sounds.

Anyone with an IQ high enough to know that the WWE isn't real will probably be insulted by the cheesiness of this movie.

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.

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.

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!

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?

What the heck...this is the Widescreen Collection, it should be properly made for a widescreen system.

I still love this movie but am very disappointed with Paramount and the production house that produced this disc.

As soon as I got my shipment I opened this and popped it in my dvd player. The actual video is 4x3 with black borders...not 16x9 anamorphic. Stay away from this, this is not how a widescreen movie should be made on DVD. This is an insult to the technology.
