Storyline

Danger faces unsuspecting tourists in Las Vegas as Colonel Nelson, who goes mad when he is accidentally electrocuted by the very super secret U.S. military tank he is testing, Iron Thunder. He now believes he is in the middle of an actual war and the city of glittering lights is his target. In a desperate attempt to stop him from using the state of the art offensive and defensive technology on board, the head of the Iron Thunder project sends out a Special Forces team, headed by woman who has to deal with a crew that has its own ulterior agendas. Following Nelson's trail of destruction across the desert, they face off in a spectacular battle and force Nelson out of his tank. The battle continues on foot into the ruined Ghost towns of times gone by. Nelson is in his element, matching wits and weapons with the less experienced soldiers. Iron Thunder is about military technology gone wild and the price humans must pay to survive in the 21st century. Written by Harmony Gold

Richard Hatch and a catchy title do not a movie make.

Iron Thunder was obviously made on the budget one usually reserves for porno movies. Super secret next generation tanks that rattle and squeak like an old Sherman? Hatch in a green jumpsuit sporting a pot belly to rival anything seen at the family picnic and effects that were just plain laughable. Add to this dialogue that was totally inappropriate for the story ("Language, people.", whenever anyone used a cuss word), plot lines that seem totally ridiculous (Hatch wires a tank shell that kills a guy by causing the blood in his head to leak into the helmet he is wearing instead of exploding and killing everyone in the tank...go figure) and just a general lameness that pervades this movie in spades.

If you've got money to burn and need a cure for insomnia then by all means buy this movie and watch to your heart's content. My aunt does. She puts it on and three minutes into it I am left to agonize over it as she has already fallen asleep.

If not then might I suggest the excellent "Blue Thunder" instead. It packs more bang for the buck and has a cool chopper too. Who knows? You just might become a JAFO too (watch the movie and find out).
