    You can`t stop the thunder
    Certificate: 15
    Running Time: 102 mins

    Release Date:

    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 race car driver Cole Trickle`s career until he turns to a beautiful doctor (Nicole Kidman) to regain his nerve and true courage needed to race, to win and to live.

    "Another summer blockbuster movie" called Days Of Thunder and Ridley Scott`s brother Tony Scott working with Tom Cruise once again.Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise stars in a racing movie, which is same kind of as Top Gun, but not as good.I don`t want you be bored, so quickly to the transfer.
    The video is the weakest part of this dvd and it looks quite old sometimes.It`s strange how so "new movie, made in 90`s" can have this kind of transfer.Paramount wasn`t as sharp and they have used to be.The audio is luckily quite nice, with engine roars and need for speed effects, by the way great Hans Zimmer`s score.Features includes only trailer.This was also one of the must have to the Tom Cruise collection, sadly they didn`t success with transfer.
