Editor's Note
Cole Trickle (Tom Cruise) is a young, cocky hotshot with little stock car driving experience and a lot of raw talent. Trickle's uncanny ability to make all the right moves on the racetrack wins him the backing of Tim Dolan (Randy Quaid), who wants to put him in a car. Eventually he wins the support of grizzled former driver Harry Hogge (Robert Duvall), a NASCAR legend who sees that Trickle has the potential to be a great driver. Determined to make it to the top, Trickle develops a healthy rivalry with veteran racer Rowdy Burns (Michael Rooker). Along the way, he romances Dr. Claire Lewicki (Nicole Kidman), a beautiful neurosurgeon. Hogge's mentoring (and a potential tragedy) leads Trickle through the dramatic process of self-discovery, which ultimately makes him a better driver. Directed by Tony Scott, DAYS OF THUNDER is reminiscent of his TOP GUN, the film that rocketed Cruise to stardom. Scott uses spectacular driving and racing scenes in this film, which was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Sound.

Expert Review Days of Thunder - Blu-Ray DVD Review
By: Josh Lasser Reviews
Published on: 12/26/2008 7:00 PM
Watch a Tom Cruise movie – be it from the present day or two decades ago – and you get the indefinable essence of a movie star. Be the film good, bad, or somewhere in between, there's Tom Cruise, shining and larger than life. There are certain aspects of his performance, of his personality, which bleed across from one film to the next. There are few performances in which Tom Cruise's character doesn't have a cocksure attitude, in which his character doesn't defy death. This Tuesday a classic Tom Cruise performance will wend its way to Blu-ray as Cole Trickle from Days of Thunder makes his first appearance in the high-definition format. For those of you who can't instantly recollect which Cruise vehicle that was, think Top Gun, but with cars. Or, thought of another way, it's the one where he first worked with Nicole Kidman, the one that started it the full review
