Cuba Gooding Jr.,
Cole Trickle enters the high-pressure world of Nascar racing. He's a hot driver with a hot temper, and this attitude gets him into trouble not only with other drivers, but members of his own team as well.Written by

City Chevrolet, a sponsor for Cole early in the movie, is a real-life Charlotte area dealership that is owned by Rick Hendrick, who prepared most of the cars in the movie. See more »
When Rowdy gets mad that Cole is going to pass him and Rowdy says, "I'm going to put him in the wall," which would have summarily resulted in Rowdy being black flagged for the race (and probably more than one race after that), cars that are traveling at 200 miles per hour do not bounce off each other and keep going straight ahead. Cole's car, or Rowdy's car, would have hit the wall, spun off the track, flipped or rolled multiple times, smashing into a thousand pieces and taking several other cars out with them. See more »

By all standards I shouldn't enjoy this movie.....
First of all this movie has Tom Cruise in it, which to be honest is the reason that I hesitated for so long to see it. Secondly It's about NASCAR for Christ's sake! The problem is, I did enjoy it. I believe its for the reasons that I mentioned that I actually did enjoy it. An escapist sort of entertainment that puts you in a place that you would really never even consider going. I was forced to rent this recently by a friend and after sitting about 15 minutes in to it I just let go and let the colors and sounds wash over me. This movie is the visual equivalent of a music video with dialog. Every scene is short and to the point, and if its forward momentum you are looking for in your movies then you've come to the right place. The entire duration of the movies length I kept thinking that I wish there were more movies made that took you to another world the way this one does. Tony Scott you've done it again sir, Congratulations!
