Days of Thunder Reviews

Days of Thunder does accomplish the job it sets out to do. It's sometimes funny, sometimes exciting and never too boring or offensive. In a disappointing movie season -- as this one has started out to be -- that can seem like quite an accomplishment.

Good writing by Robert Towne and a host of strong supporting performances complement the on-the-track visuals of director Tony Scott in giving us a sense of the leap of faith that is required by drivers at this level.

The nerve of these people, recycling that story. No, the shrewdness of these people.

Worse films than this have been smashes, so give it a spin.

It oughtn't be good, at least. Not with that script. And yet it's so much better than the combined quality of its elements.

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.

Completely preposterous (I had no clue that Nascar allowed essentially bumper car antics), but nevertheless entertaining.

Days of Heaven is a compelling adventure story and a riveting meditation on the soulscape of America.

Fun racing movie. Cruise in top melodramatic form with Duvall as an anchor.

The plot is like a comfortable old pair of blue jeans. It may not be very challenging, but you can feel right at home with it.

The flash is still there, but Towne has added a layer of substance underneath, and in generous enough helpings that you can let the picture vamp you, ravage you, without hating yourself afterward.
