Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
From the engine roar and fever pitch of professional stock car racing, Days of Thunder explodes with the most spectacular racing action ever captured on film. Tom Cruise plays race car driver Cole Trickle, whose talent and ambition are surpassed only by his burning need to win. Discovered by businessman Tim Daland (Randy Quaid), Cole is teamed with legendary crew chief and car-builder Harry Hogge (Academy Award®-winner Robert Duvall) to race for the Winston Cup at the Daytona 500. A fiery crash nearly ends Cole's career and he must turn to a beautiful doctor (Nicole Kidman) to regain his nerve and the true courage needed to race, to win and to live.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It's one thing to market a film solely on the strength of its star. It's quite another to go ahead and make the film that way.
Fresh: There are plenty of soulless movies around. What's special about Days of Thunder is that it works overtime trying to convince you it's not one of them.
Fresh: Producers Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer have raised formula films to a science.
Rotten: Days of Thunder zigzags between exploiting Cruise's likable grin and charming vulnerability and portraying him as an emotional loser. It's an uncertain and unsatisfying mix.
I WAS SO PLEASANTLY SUPRISED! i thought, since its a relatively old and unknown movie it wouldnt be fantastic, but it shattered all my expectations. despite the bad media surrounding tom cruise, there is no denying that he is a good actor. robert duvall is phenomonal as well. and as for nicole kidman...like in every one of her movies, she shines SO brightly. now being a huge nicole kidman fan, you might think im a little biased, but watch the movie and see what i mean. great piece of film right here
Excellent movie, why can't we buy it?
Exceelent movie, why can't we buy it?
I'm gonna put him in the wall!
This is a great movie and it is really fun to watch. I'm not sure how legal it is in NASCAR to just put someone in the wall every time they get close to you but it certainly makes the movie more enjoyable!
