The long-awaited sequel to Top Gun has apparently already been made; it is titled "Days of Thunder". Essentially, Pete "Maverick" Mitchell has become Cole Trickle and a NASCAR driver. That is honestly the only difference between the twoThe long-awaited sequel to Top Gun has apparently already been made; it is titled "Days of Thunder". Essentially, Pete "Maverick" Mitchell has become Cole Trickle and a NASCAR driver. That is honestly the only difference between the two films. As such, this one is incredibly enjoyable. The racing scenes are intense and very well done. The characters, much like Top Gun, are enjoyable and though quite generic, they are pretty well put together. But, sure, the similarities to Top Gun do hurt it because they did just take the same plotlines and re-do them, but since Top Gun is absolutely hysterical and over-the-top enjoyable, so is Days of Thunder. Plus, even as a non-NASCAR fan, I truly believe it was a great portrayal of racing and racers. For that, Days of Thunder is nowhere near as bad as many say it is, rather it is a very good popcorn flick that entertains in spades. Expand

If you're a NASCAR fan it may just be the best movie you've ever seen.

I enjoyed watching this movie, it felt like top gun on wheels, the lighting in some of the scenes was vary well orchestrated in this movie, especially in the garage scenes love to see the shadows and effects of the light through the fans, theI enjoyed watching this movie, it felt like top gun on wheels, the lighting in some of the scenes was vary well orchestrated in this movie, especially in the garage scenes love to see the shadows and effects of the light through the fans, the music from Hans Zimmer is pretty well done as well, there is some flaws with the movie, but the acting from tom cruise, Robert Duvall, Randy Quaid, is pretty solid, I thought Nicole Kidmans accent was not fooling anyone, but honestly the movie was fairly entertaining to watch the story was well put together.
