Rolling Thunder - Preview
Preview by Jack Foley
ROLLING Thunder, the classic revenge tale directed by John Flynn, finally makes its Blu-ray premiere as a Double Play on Monday, January 30, 2012, courtesy of Studiocanal.
When Major Charles Rane (William Devane) returns home to San Antonio, Texas, he is given a true hero’s welcome. He and his friend, John Vohden (Tommy Lee Jones) have endured eight years of physical and mental torture in a POW camp.
The adjustment isn’t going to be easy. His wife has fallen in love with another man, and his son, whom he adores, no longer remembers him. In Rane’s own mind, he is a walking dead man – he died the day he was taken prisoner.
However, what Rane doesn’t know is that his experiences as a POW are nothing compared to the ordeal he is about to face. The unthinkable happens and Rane, subdued and more distant than when he returned, is forced to plan out his own justice, with the help of his friend Vohden.
But there is no sense of pleasure in his task; only the ice cold determination of a man who has suffered too much and refuses to be stopped.
Extras include Audio commentary with co-writer Heywood Gould, moderated by Roy Frumkes, and a theatrical trailer with an introduction from Eli Roth (which you can also see below).
