Nicolas De Toth,
A South American rebel leader in exile in Miami is given one last chance to overthrow his successor, a brutal dictator, by a multi-national mining group out to exploit his countries' mineral resources. PROBLEM: The leader's only son is held hostage by the dictator, and will be executed at the first sign of attack. SOLUTION: Recruit a team of deadly fighters, all experts in guerilla warfare, to free the boy and eliminate the resistance. Thus, the Thunder Squad is born. The Thunder Sqaud is an all action, all fighting, all thrilling adventure into the country of a madman! Written by
I watched this Umberto Lenzi 1985 action/jungle adventure last night. Its plot resembles the Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle COMMANDO from the same year (Italians ripping off popular cinema...nah!) with a young child being kidnapped by mercenaries. Of course, the Italians one up the Terminator by including 5 commandos led by the always reliable Antonio Sabato. After an initially slow half hour set up, THUNDER SQUAD really picks up with the group trekking through the jungle and shoot up lots of stuff. Lenzi throws in a bit of social commentary regarding genocide and political machination but never dwells on it if he feels a good explosion can take the viewer back into the land of the Thunder Squad. Familiar faces Werner Pochath and Ivan Rassimov pop up as two members of the elite squad. This was release in the US on video as WILD TEAM.
