Synopsis


Rolling Thunder
William Devane plays a rare sympathetic role in Rolling Thunder, though his behavior is just as cold-blooded and sharkish as in any of his villainous assignments. Devane is cast as Maj. Charles Rane, a recently released Vietnam POW who is given a hero's welcome in his Texas hometown. Things sour pretty quickly, however: Rane's wife has lost all love for him, his son doesn't recognize him, and there are those in town who consider him a "loser" or "baby-killer." All he really has to show for his ordeal in Nam is a cache of silver coins bestowed on him by the more sympathetic townsfolk. A scumbag gang of thieves decides to relieve Rane of his money; they kill his family, then torture and disfigure Rane to ascertain the whereabouts of the coins. Now living only for vengeance, the taciturn Rane heads to Mexico to exact his own brand of justice on the fleeing crooks. Tommy Lee Jones co-stars as Rane's best friend, Johnny Vohden, who unquestioningly agrees to help Rane in his mission of revenge. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    This is a good retro movie for fans of "revenge". I just wish it went into more detail and didnt leave as much to the imagination. The end really makes this movie however. The acting is good, the writing is even good. The Blu Ray is somewhat grainy and doesnt feel any better then a dvd. I would recommend this for fans of this genre, but not for everyone.

    William Devane and a Young Tommy Lee Jones are The Main Actors. Check out Roscoe P. Coltrane as a Villain. Action and it was Filmed in My City, somewhat.

    An fine example of great storytelling coupled with strong performances from great character actors. The film deals frankly with the effects of PTSD on a soldier who has returned from Vietnam to a world that no longer makes any sense.

    William Devane is excellent in this movie. Tommy Lee Jones also plays a very good supporting part as one of Devane's soldiers.
