not really a ran fan .. i knew the drivers back in the day ... nowadays i am so lost. but i enjoy the thrill of winning, wowza from 1990 .. Nicole Kidman ... in her early days ... Robert Duvall .. is a genius. i own the soundtrack as well. such good tunes. i am drawing a blank on his driving buddies name ... darn ... man ....hate when u forget names (i look him up, Michael Rooker, love him, he is such a good actor, so funny and can be mean as well)... any who ... he is racing him to the restaurant ...that is hilarious ... is that a spoiler .. hope not ... so funny!! Randy Quaid is the big boss. John C. Reilly - love him. so many great folks.
I saw this movie in the theater when I was little boy and it just blew me away.A movie is suppose to help you escape in a new reality and this movie did just that.Breaking down the movie and getting into semantics, takes away from the essence of the movie.It's a movie about a race car driver, with a lot of natural talent and portrays a lot of character.Still one of the best racing movies even today, has a great deal of heart..
I viewed Days of Thunder in my adolescence and thought it a great movie. i ended up becoming an Air Force Pilot, and the characterization of race car driver psychology in the film is valid for military pilots as well in reality. This is a drama that is uniquely American. Nicole Kidman gives an excellent performance as a physician and prime romantic interest of Cruise. I think this film rivals 'Top Gun', and in its simplicity, may be Cruise's finest performance.
Daytona Raceway is a site to behold in person. If you have the guts, you can even take a ride in a race car (Richard Petty Experience) with a driver. It is scary but it is probably an experience you will never forget. Not for the faint hearted - no heart conditions. Anyway, I had seen bits and pieces of this movie before. I had to watch it through just to see how the drama was depicted and how the Daytona Beach raceway was featured. Now days I think the in car cameras are very good. The newer race cars have gone digital with sensors feeding back telemetrics to the engineers. This move shows the analog guages, how the tuning was done more by the seat of the pants.
Classic. Cruise is awesome. Many references to real life events of drivers, like the drive to the restaurant was an Earnhardt-Bodine story. Earnhardt was offered part of Rowdy, didn’t take it bc he didn’t wanna be the bad guy lol HIM! That’s all according to Dale Jr. himself.
No matter who you are you cant deny the truth that Tony Scott knew how to take us from 0-100. Adrenaline will be pumping and the story, while straight forward, was always an experience unto itself. Tony Scott, you will be missed. Thank you for the silver screen rush that came from your movies.
First there was Top Gun, then The Colour of Money next came Cocktails and finally there was Days of Thunder. There was a recurring theme to all these movies but ultimately as a motorsports fan Days of Thunder resonated the most for me. Great Movie, Fantastic Action sequences and this Blu Ray version makes my Surround Sound kit worth the money. Worth buying simply for the sound of that V8 echoing around the race track in the opening sequence at the test session.
1.0 out of 5 starsGiven this is supposed to be the region free version I would recommend caution. Or the DVD

The film I cannot rate, but the Blue ray does not play in UK Blu Ray players. Given this is supposed to be the region free version I would recommend caution. Or the DVD. Movie is classic fun! Top Gun with Gears. But not Top Gear, that is something else..
