WALKING THUNDER (Video Premier Release USA 1997)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì 

Walking Thunder—simple adventure film—can be watched superficially or it can be watched as an almost supernatural set of events that takes place to allow survival of a family left in the least likely circumstances to survive. The movie is clean enough for children and interesting enough for adults if adults take it to the higher interpretation. This is a strongly C-grade film that offers suitable presentation and does serve the entire family’s entertainment needs.

The storyline is about a boy who is given a family journal to read that details how his ancestors prepared for and survived a winter in the Rocky Mountains after being isolated from their wagon train traveling west.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Maybe. It is a simple bedtime story that can be chosen as a family watch. While this film will not achieve classic status, it is interesting as it explores the protection of a family that by all ‘normal’ circumstances would not have survived.
