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.

Tom Cruise tries to do for NASCAR what he did for the military in "Top Gun". However, he just doesn't pull it off. He doesn't make it sexy. The story line here doesn't evoke emotion. It tries. But no luck. There isn't even the "Oh I hope they get together" either. They didn't develop the relationship between Kidman and Cruise. I think they had the opportunity to really show how NASCAR is a sport and how you have to really know driving, the track, cars etc to be good at it . . . that it isn't just luck on a tank of gas with tires still on. Dunno. Just seemed kinda slow. They did try to capture the culture of the circuit with the "son of a *****" every other word. That was true to the crowd. But that was about it. Maybe it was enough for the NASCAR fan. Who knows? Not for me. You do get to see a young, handsome, shaggy haired sun kissed Tom Cruise. Kidman was young and pretty too. But if you have watched "Officer and a Gentleman" or "Top Gun" you have seen the plot for this movie. Same stock plot.

Also from what I recall (maybe incorrectly) from watching NASCAR races (my father making me as he watched them and controlled the TV or forced to sit and watch when he dragged me to one of his friend's to watch a race) you don't go around the track slamming into cars etc. You get flagged and if enough rough housing you get kicked out. You definitely lose. Dunno. What I recall.

Overall not Tom's best.

░░░░░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!
