Ridiculous

"Thunderground" is a very silly film. It's about a would-be boxer and a kid who want to fight the ultimate bad guy: "The Man" played by Jesse Ventura. The acting is pretty bad except Ventura who knows he's in a goofy film, and he overacts with glee.

I'm happy when movies like this see the light of day and not disappear off the face of the earth.

"Thunderground" is a mixture of "Rocky", "Over The Top", and "Bloodsport". If you want to see hobos beat each other up and Jesse Ventura fighting in a remote forest, this is the movie for you.
