Theatrical release poster
- Tony Scott & Tom Cruise team up again with the same folks behind Top Gun, and it's pretty much exactly the same story line, with F14 Tomcats swapped for Nascars, and we love it!
- Nicole Kidman was looking mighty fine. Tom Cruise agreed, and married her on christmas eve of the same year this movie was released.
- Looking back now, this cast was awesome. Cruise, Kidman, Robert Duvall, Raindy Quaid, John C. Reilly, Michael Rooker. Happy days.
- A fantasic soundtrack, and a great early score from the master composer: Hans Zimmer.
Starring: Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, Robert Duvall and Randy Quaid. Directed by Tony Scott. You can't outrun the thunder.
Boy, you're very quick.
You oughta see me drive.
He's destroyed both my cars. He destroyed both my cars. He's fired. You're fired. You're all fired.
Now can you walk, or am I gonna have to carry you?
Walk? Hell... I'll race your ass.
[During a pit stop]
All right. While we're still under a caution, I want you to go back out on that track and hit the pace car.
Hit the pace car?
Hit the pace car.
Because you've hit every other goddamned thing out there, I want you to be perfect.
Tell me what you love so much about racing.
Speed. To be able to control it. To know that I can control something that's out of control.
