Thunder Run Reviews:

The weak budget, the synthesized soundtrack, the emphasis on action scenes over script...it has to be a Cannon studios action movie from the 1980's!Forrest Tucker was one of the key action stars for Republic Studios in the 1950's. In many ways, Republic was the Cannon of its day. Like Cannon, it specialized in weak budget action films, occasionally luring a large star from another studios (John Wayne, for example) and eventually overextending itself with pricey flops (i.e. "Jubilee Trail" and "Fair Wind to Java") and going bankrupt. Almost 30 years after leaving Republic to do a series of movies for the British Hammer studio, Tucker's theatrical swan song would be his lone action effort of the 1980's."Thunder Run" is harm by its weak budget and inexperienced director (Hudson was doing his first feature), but many action sequences deliver the goods; terrorists chase Tucker through the desert, Street Warrior-style, in VW beetles equipped with heat-seeking missiles; Tucker jumps over a moving train in his 18-wheeler; "space age plastic" and some well-placed Molotov cocktails are among Tucker's defense mechanisms; and the chief terrorist is played by Dharma's TV dad (with a scar on his face, so we'll know he's the terrible guy).MGM/UA has been slowly, but surely releasing Cannon's 1980's output on DVD, but this classic slice of cheese has yet to be released. Hurry up, MGM/UA! This one is not to be missed!A fun chase film and a fitting farewell for veteran action icon Tucker (Cannon would do the same for other long-time action icon, Lee Marvin, in THE DELTA FORCE the same year). 7/10


Bullhead City, Arizona. It was nice to see Hollywood coming to town. I'll admit this film is terrible but some of the folks I went to high school with are in it. Dennis Deal, the General, was our high school basketball coach. The bar scene, where the two guys receive in an argument over a woman (isn't that everytime the case?), those guys are brothers and the bartender that breaks it up is their father. Funny, eh? Anyway, I told it's terrible and it is but I receive a large kick out of watching it. I can mission out all the territories they go in the movie. The final destination is really Davis Dam on the Colorado River. Anyway, watch this movie, laugh at how terrible it is and, if you're from the 'Head, it'll mean that much more to you.


Probably hardly anyone has even heard of this movie, and that's all right, because the only folks who would care about it are truckers and hot rodders. As far as the plot goes, let's just tell there's a secret government operation here, topics to terrorists and internal corruption. Forrest Tucker was a boy many folks today are not familiar with, but he had a lot of roles and was a common name. And then we have John Shepherd, who is not a familiar name but is worth checking out. His hero drag races a Chevy pickup, apparently one of the fastest in existence, and it seems the women flock to him two at a time. There's also a stage with the "Cotton-eyed Joe." Anyway, Forrest and John are trucking plutonium in a high-tech customized semi with the Chevy on board, just in situation they need it. The Kenworth conventional tractor has a 8V-92 Detroit, apparently the greatest powerplant for this mission. Actually for the greatest part of this entire movie: Where White Line Fever gives you a truck tractor jumping through the air, Thunder Run gives you a entire semi!! Soon they have to abandon the rig and test the Chevy to escape from a 12V-71 Detroit-equipped Kenworth cabover which gets wrecked. Anyway, they receive like $250,000 for the run, and John asks Forrest what they're going to spend it on, and, like a true man, Forrest tells "On anything we damn well please!"
