NASCAR in a movie never seemed entertaining
Tom Cruise can make any drama film exciting
Never thought I wanted to be the bad boy of nascar…
Watchable action movie with Cruise and Kidman in early roles
This movie is over the top cheesy but it’s still so good. Such a classic that never gets old. Go ahead and drop the hammer.
Great movie, plenty of action and some well placed humor. Great cast of characters
Top gun with race cars. Don’t care. Loved it & chemistry with Nicole Kidman is much better than with Kelly McGillis.
Haven't seen this in years it's a good Nascar movie, gives just a little insight to the life of a team good racing scenes.
Who plays a better hotshot *insert job title* than a young Tom Cruise. The racing scenes are great and Robert Duvall adds some gravitas.
Cruise does well as a young hotshot driver.
