VICIOUS THUNDER: REVIEW
Written by VHS
“Vicious Thunder” is the story of an infamous arms dealer named Charles Rainier who is caught in a sting operation by the FBI. At his court date the stage is set to put this menace behind bars once and for all. Only problem is Charles has a small army of female assassins’ hell bent on breaking him out. What follows is an all-out war in the courthouse that pulls no punches when it comes to excessive violence. Will the guards be able to keep these assassins at bay or will Charles be free once again to practice his diabolical trade?
Bradley Creanzo went above and beyond in the making of “Vicious Thunder”. His choice to use actual blanks vs. digital gunshots may have scared some away from his set, but it delivered in a HUGE way. The gun-play in this film is such a breath of fresh air. The recoil alone adds a level of realism that is missing from a lot of the films in the indie-action genre. Moral of the story, great risks come with great rewards and “Vicious Thunder” is proof of that.
