Southern drive-in "Hard Times" clone ..........
30 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Thunderground" is a fast moving "Hard Times" clone. The bare knuckles characters are not unlike Charles Bronson as the fighter and James Coburn as the manager in the depression era film "Hard Times". "Thunderground" substitutes hobos riding rail cars, with Paul Coufos as the fighter and Margaret Langrick as his teenage partner. Michael Ironside is supposed to be in this movie, but I'll be damned if I could tell you where? I will tell you that M. Emmet Walsh and Jesse Ventura are in it, but their parts are small. Overall, "Thunderground" is surprisingly enjoyable, oozing with Southern atmosphere, totally acceptable character development and acting, making it the perfect film for a lazy night at a Southern drive-in. - MERK
