Classic Trailer: Rolling Thunder (1977)

This trailer is wonderfully grainy and old-school; I love every second of it but I love the movie even more.

William Devane is perfectly cast as a recently released Vietnam POW called Major Charles Rane who is given a hero’s welcome in his Texas hometown. Things sour 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 “baby-killer.”

The movie co-stars one Tommy Lee Jones who plays Rane’s loyal friend Johnny Vohden; written by the great Paul Schrader Rolling Thunder is also directed by John Flynn who you’ll remember helmed Out for Justice, Lock Up and more.

If you’ve never seen Rolling Thunder now is the perfect time to check it out as it’s been recently remastered on Blu-ray.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.
