a b movie with interesting characters
10 November 2004 | by lord_powerSee all my reviews

Rolling thunder is a "B" movie about an x-army group and an engineer who are given the opportunity to head up a new "non lethal" approach at law enforcement. After having to steal their vehicles back to field test them the military reluctantly gives the group a mission to prove the projects worth. They have to break out a snitch from a militant group that the fbi is unable to touch due to lack of evidence.

The movie is decent for a B movie. The special effects aren't very good and the vehicles look cumbersome. The characters are exaggerated but somewhat interesting anyway(especially lewis and his "bar trick"). It almost seemed like the setup for a series or follow up movies although none have surfaced as of yet. It probably wouldn't have been bad as a series at least for the time period it was released.
