Ranking The Top 25 Best Tom Cruise Films Ever Made

23. Days of Thunder (1990)

They weren’t trying to reinvent the wheel with this one. Tony Scott teams back up with Tom Cruise to essentially remake Top Gun, trading out fighter jets for stock cars. It doesn’t quite reach the same heights as their first outing, but there’s still a lot of good here. The supporting cast is fantastic, bringing depth to what were pretty stock characters on the page, and every scene with Cruise behind the wheel is thrilling. It’s arguably one of the best racing films ever made.

Days of Thunder is dumb, loud and tons of fun.
