Classic 80s awesomeness Posted by: from: on I bought this after hearing a movie podcast in which it came up during a discussion. As an 80s movie addict there are very few I have not seen, this was one. Best buy sells it so cheap on blu ray I blind bought it. I was blown away at how well this movie holds up for its age. The action, f\x and performances are all on point. Very happy to have this in my collection.

It still entertains over 30 years later. Posted by: from: on Blue Thunder flies again in this budget priced edition. The plot involves Los Angeles helicopter cop Frank Murphy (Roy Schieder), who is given the opportunity to pilot "Blue Thunder", the LAPD's new tactical copter. But during his investigation of a Los Angeles Congresswomen's death, Murphy discovers he must run for his life when he finds out about a group of people who want to use Blue Thunder for a far more sinister use. The film also stars Malcolm McDowell, Candy Clark, Warren Oates and Daniel Stern. The Pros of this Blu is a great looking transfer. The Cons is that there is no lossless DTS soundtrack, just a Dolby Digital 5.1 one. Also, since this is a budget priced title from Mill Creek Entertainment (licensed from Columbia Pictures), it is a movie only version which autoplays when you put in the disc. Anyway, what more can you say, it's Blue Thunder for eight bucks, which was the incentive for me to buy this. If you're not a DTS fanatic, and don't care for bonus materials for a film, I recommend Blue Thunder.

a classic revisited! Posted by: from: on I have been looking forward to seeing this movie again after so long seeing it on cable here and there years back. Imagine my surprise seeing this on the shelf in blu-ray! I bought it and haven't regretted it. Blue Thunder gets the blu-ray treatment giving it great picture (considering the age of the movie) and a major improvement in sound. If you like Blue Thunder, and own a blu-ray player, this is a no-brainer buy.

I finally found it! Posted by: from: Cape girardeau on I remember first purchasing this several years ago when it first came out on VHS and I literally wore the tape out. I had been looking for it for a long time and was elated to find it on Blu-Ray. This is an excellent action film and one I plan on watching a lot in the future.

Great film. "Golden Oldie" Posted by: from: Quakertown, Pa on High-tech helicopter steals the show from the human star, Roy Scheider of JAWS fame. Has some scenes not for the under 17 age group. Good luck trying to figure what JAFO means -- it's what Scheider calls his young co-pilot.

Classic 80s Movie Posted by: from: on Blue Thunder is an interesting movie in that it's part action/part suspense that just happens to center around a really high tech helicopter. This is good stuff and worth picking up if you're a fan of 80s movies.

Classic Movie Posted by: from: Kempner, TX on I liked this movie back when it came out on VHS. It is still worth a watch if you haven't seen it before. The "modern, state of the art technology" displayed in this movie is about 10 years old now though.
