Thunder kicks yet more butt!
2 November 2008 | by HaemovoreRexSee all my reviews

Mark Gregory (yes, Trash himself, from Bronx Warriors) headlines as the eponymous Indian hero, Thunder in this, the third and final in Fabrizio De Angelis's enjoyable series. In this entry, our man is seeking revenge against some slimy scum bags (headed by the always superb and very sadly missed, Werner Pochath) who lay waste to a small Indian village before giving him a merry old beating.

Seeing, that the police chief (John Phillip Law) is reluctant to help, Thunder is forced to take matters into his own hands and promptly sets about in turn laying waste to the offenders businesses, invariably by blowing the premises sky high! Yes, the plot is about as non-existent as imaginable but nonetheless, this is highly satisfying stuff as the bad guys are systematically punished for their crimes. Interestingly for a film of this nature, no one actually dies, rather Thunder's methods are centred more on a form of financial retribution in order to balance the amount of damage the villains did to the village at the start (for which they subsequently point blankly refuse to make financial amends).

All in all then, good harmless fun and highly recommended for fellow B-movie fans.
