Product Description

Product Description

Cruise/Duvall/Quaid/Kidman ~ Days Of Thunder

Amazon.ca

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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...

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.
Later,
Harry Houdini

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+.

For this longtime Nascar Fan, many parts of the Days of Thunder movie was ridiculous. There were many things that happened in this film that just doenst happen in the true sport of stock car racing.
Aside from these inaccuracies, Days of Thunder is a pretty entertaining film, with a likeable cast and just enough drama, action and humor to round it out nicely.
The DVD is far more enjoyable than the VHS version. The video is crisp, and the sound is phenomenal. 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. When the engines are first fired up, your living room will explode with loud rumbling engines. This is what DVD is meant for.
The DVD is lacking on extras. It has scene selections and the movie trailer and thats about it, but the video and sound really make this DVD worth buying without needing all of those extras.
Bottomline, Days of Thunder is a good movie, and a better DVD!! Its well worth buying!
Recommended!!

I stil find it hard to believe there is actually a film with the title "Days of Thunder." With it's neon one-sheet, soundtrack from the dawn of the digital era, and per capita more smoky-sunset filters than a "heartbeat of america" commercial DOT is an absolut classic of American big cajones cinema. The Hans Zimmer soundtrack is one of his best- very similar in sound to Thelma&Louise. AS for the story- well the story per se BLOWS, but the film does capture the spirit and motivation of stock car racing, or at least, thanks in great part to the really outstanding performance of Robert Duvall. What I find most interesting about this film is it's need to always one-up itself and the wafer-thin suspension of dsbelief. It has a terminal insecurity, much like Tom Cruise's character. Well and ofcourse this is touched upon in the movie in a really cheesy way. The film never really gets its message straight, and although ambitious, winds up being a triumph-over- adversity underdog yarn. But that's fine with me. As a buddhist tone-poem on juvenile male anger it's a lot more complex than Top Gun. Nicole Kidman, dressed in white throughout the film, tries to set things straight in this unhealthy environment, but in the end succumbs to the obvious pleasures of the racetrack, and accepts a dirty oil-caked kiss from Tom on victory lane. An as many people may remember this film is very special because it was picked by Premier magazine to be the #1 film of 1990, and wound up coming in at like #7 behind such illustrious company as the aboniable Dick Tracy.
