Customer Rating: Summary: Norton's Villain Flies High! Comment: When Michael Dudikoff's hero in "Black Thunder" asks Richard Norton's turncoat why he's in the middle of a hijack and ransom scheme for a zealously guarded fighter jet, Norton simply replies, "Getting rich." Versatile actor Norton delivers the line so craftily, and so convincingly, that no audience of "Black Thunder" will ever second-guess this bad guy's motivation. As Dudikoff's prey, Norton delivers a portrayal of the treasonous "Ratcher" (great baddie name)that lifts this plane chase movie off terra firma and out of the "formulaic action picture" category. Top marks for this fast paced movie with thanks to actor Richard Norton! Customer Rating: Summary: bloody americans... Comment: just reading the other reviews on this page just goes to show how stupid americans are, i mean, did they even watch this movie? Its the worst movie ive ever seen in my life! It uses recycled footage, it uses an Israeli Kfir fighter as the 'secret' fighter, it has bad acting, and so many other reasons why its crap. Customer Rating: Summary: Black Thunder Comment: Pretty good action flick! I especially liked the effects in this film! When the Jet "cloakes" it is amazing..........WOW! Customer Rating: Summary: one of Dudikoff's best Comment: "Black Thunder" is one of Michael Dudikoff's best films. This is what action films should be: just straight, all-out action without a lot of doppy romantic scenes and excessive language. The film rockets along at the speed of the top secret jet Dudikoff is trying to recover, and the film's over before you know it. If you're a fan of "military-pilot-trying-to-recover-stolen-top-secret-prototype-fighter-jet," then don't miss "Black Thunder." Customer Rating: Summary: good movie Comment: i've been a fan of Michael Dudikoff ever since i saw American Ninja and have watched his acting evolve. would love to see him in more films that has the potential for box office hits.
