      Audience Member Ultimately, Black Thunder is nothing more than a B Movie with a bit of extra production value. You get the whole B movie package: Explosions, An ultra-masculine main character, stock-footage galore and a couple of hot chicks. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Thunder Riders Community Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Derivative action film notable only for the fact that the American Ninja himself - Michael Dudikoff - is in it! I thought he'd given up acting years ago! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member When the top secret prototype of the Nova Stealth fighter has been stolen, the Pentagon launches big alarm. There is only one man who can get back the plane; the test-pilot Vince Conners. Michael Dudikoff (of American Ninja fame) stars as Vince. There are quite a lot of factual errors in the film such as the sound of gunfire being the same for all kinds of guns, whether it be a handgun or an assault rifle. This did not bother me in the slightest. All be it a little cheesy, the film is full of action and I enjoyed it. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member A typical Michael Dudikoff movie. B. But it's better than some of the crap I've seen in my life though. :) Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Manage to entertain, not so bad for a B grade movie. Featuring SR-71 Blackbird is really innovative of them. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
