Product Details

Product Description


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. But without Top Gun's go-go soundtrack and visual feats, Scott merely ends up with a Tom Cruise vehicle that's out of gas.

Cruise plays (what else?) a cocky, upstart stock-car racer who faces down ruthless racing opponents. Nicole Kidman, Robert Duvall, Cary Elwes, and Randy Quaid do the laps around this movie's tiresome track with Cruise, while director Scott attempts to propel the action along with his trademark visceral, gritty but glamorous visual style.

Days of Thunder is notable, however, as a turning point in Cruise's then one-dimensional career. After this film--having tired even his most devoted fans by playing a bartender, an air force pilot, and a stock-car driver--Cruise was forced to take on real character parts. --Ethan Brown

Product Description

Jours de tonnerre (Days of Thunder) est un film américain réalisé par Tony Scott, sorti en 1990. Cole Trickle (Tom Cruise) est un pilote de talent mené par l'impérieux besoin d'être le meilleur. Découvert par Tim Daland (Randy Quaid), Cole va faire équipe avec un entraîneur légendaire, Harry Hodge (Robert Duvall) pour gagner la course de Daytona 500. Mais un terrible accident se produit. Cole, avec sa voiture no 46 percute son meilleur ennemi sur la piste Rowdy Burns (Michael Rooker), voiture no 51, et ils partent tous les deux pour l'hôpital. Ils deviendront par la suite de très bons amis. Avec l'aide de la belle doctoresse Claire Lewicki (Nicole Kidman), il va ré-apprendre à se concentrer, retrouver le courage nécessaire pour courir ainsi que l'envie de gagner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tom again March 7 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Another one for my collection. I think this is one of my favourites. So much drama and in the right places. Awesome job. Is there any movie Tom can't do?

I loved Tom Cruise & Niclole Kidman in this movie. Romance, Action and some light-hearted funny stuff led by Robert Duvall.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fix Review July 3 2004
Ok i have not seen the movie here but i just wanted to correct the review posted by amazon.com. The movie Top gun was not about the United States Air Force in any way shape or form. It was Navy all the way

3.0 out of 5 stars Unrealistic Yet Somewhat Entertaining Feb. 22 2004
By Chris
First of all, the Amazon.com reviewer must not know anything about racing, as this film has nothing to do with the Indy 500, and neither does NASCAR (except for racing at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the annual Brickyard 400). That said, the movie, though it features lots of unrealistic driving (err, crashing) scenes and less-than-stunning acting, still isn't the worst way to spend a couple hours if you've got the racing bug. As pointed out by other reviewers, Robert Duvall gives a great performance as Tom Cruise's crew chief who comes out of retirement to bring Cole Trickle (Cruise's character) to the top of the NASCAR ranks. Cruise's own performance is sufficient, given the character, as is Randy Quaid's. Nicole Kidman seemed to be trying too hard to be emotionless in this movie. Maybe the writers/directors told her to, I don't know. The racing scenes where the drivers aren't running each other into the wall are decent enough, and the car sounds are pretty good. If you want a great racing movie, try "LeMans" or (when it comes out on DVD) "Grand Prix." I really wish we had a truly great modern racing movie, especially about Formula One or CART/Indy car racing ("Driven" doesn't count--it sucked). Maybe someday...

4.0 out of 5 stars Yeah Jan. 24 2004
By A Customer
Dude I have never seen this movie but what i will say is this. The Editor who said Top Gun was a US Air Force movie is an idiot. You obviously did not watch Top Gun because then you would have realized it was a Navy movie. In my book you have lost all credibility, and should lose your job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet racing action Jan. 3 2004
If you don't even think about all the technical errors made its a great movie. They have real drivers in it like Richard Petty. They created a great version of a hot young driver trying to become the best driver. Cole also seems to resemble Tony Stewart being a hotshot rookie. Its obvious Cole wasn't based on Jeff Gordon but a hot young rookie which Jeff Gordon resembled. People can compare him to Jeff and other hot rookies like Jimmie Johnson. If you love NASCAR you'll love this movie. Memorable parts and quotes.

Man oh man.
Where do I start? How about with the script? Now that that's taken care of how about the acting? The acting was absolutely atrocious. I believed that Tom Cruise was a Nascar driver for about a tenth of a nano-second. He sounds nothing like a Nascar driver, he doesn't plug sponsors like crazy, and he sure as hell doesn't look tough and weathered from racing. Nicole Kidman breaks out an unforgettable performance, but this movie did come after "Far and Away" so she had no where to go but up. Robert Duvall is far from the days of Lt. Col. Kilgore and it really saddens me. The man was such a hard ass in "Apocolypse Now" and now he loves the smell of pit fumes while eating Crunch bars while his flamboyant driver makes left turns all day. Who can forget John C. Reilley in this one. This was long before the days of "Boogie Nights" and Reed Rothchild.
The plot. Um....let's see. Nope....not here.
I'm tired of ranting about this movie. This movie sucked. Tony Scott sucks. Top Gun sucked. Tom Cruise sucks....most of the time (except for Minority Report and Jerry Maguire and Vanilla Sky). Carey Elwes is just hilarious. He tries to hide the British accent, but he just can't do it.
Bottom line: This movie comes near me I'm going to put it into the wall.
