Forrest Tucker, in his final film appearance, stars in this obvious rip-off of the MAD MAX films. We find Charlie Morrison (Tucker), a veteran truck driver who is now retired, in the middle of the desert trying to make something of an unproductive cobalt mine. He is aided by his loving

grandson, Chris (John Shepherd). Enter George Adams (John Ireland), an old buddy of Charlie's, who offers the vulnerable old trucker $250,000 to transport some plutonium across Nevada and Arizona to a high-security installation. Charlie takes the job, but little does he know that some incredibly

well-armed terrorists are out to steal the radioactive cargo. From here on the film collapses into a less-than-thrilling ROAD WARRIOR chase through the desert with Charlie and Chris trying to fend off the terrorists. Slow, stupid, and ridiculous, THUNDER RUN deserved the fate it got at the box

office. Dumped on the market with nary a whimper by Cannon, the film died a quick death and appeared on video shortly thereafter.
