Editorial Reviews

Movie description The Australian comedy THUNDERSTRUCK is a story of male bonding through rock 'n roll and a road trip across the Outback. Five buddies--Ronnie, Sonny, Sam, Ben, and Lloyd--all become friends because of their love of the hard rock band AC/DC. After a fun-filled night at one of the groups' concerts, the guys narrowly miss a fatal accident, and become convinced their devotion to the band saved them. Many years later, they've grown apart, but each one remembers the pledge made that night: to bury the first one of them to die by the grave of AC/DC frontman Bon Scott. When Ronnie is killed by a freak lightning bolt, the four remaining friends must reunite to take his ashes across Australia to Scott's gravesite, encountering a series of unusual characters along the way, and rediscovering the little things that had made them friends to begin with.

Okay-this movie is pretty over -the- top in terms of being improbable on every level.The characters are great, and the situations they create are hilarious.
If you like anything out of the norm.I think you will appreciate this movie.

I think maybe only an obsesive AC/DC fan will enjoy this flick. It was a little slow to start, but once it got going I really enjoyed it. The humor is more English, some people may not find it funny, but I laughed out loud for most of it. I definalty recomend it, but you may want to consider renting it first before adding it to your collection.

If you enjoy Australian comedies, you'll likely enjoy this one. However if you don't like AC/DC or you can't suspend your disbelief beyond some hysterically bad wigs, feel free to pass on this one. I got this for Stephen Curry and Sam Worthington, and neither disappointed. This is essentially a best friend road trip movie with an awesome soundtrack. Don't take it too seriously and you'll have a great time.

I picked this one up for $2.87 including shipping and really wasn't expecting much. It's actually pretty funny. The acting is not the greatest, and the plot is stupid but for $2.87 it's not bad. I will watch it again, and I have seen a lot worse that cost me a lot more.

Though I'm Australian, I'm not really that much of a fan of Australian film, or AC/DC. Still, I like movies about rock music, so I had a look at "Thunderstruck". It's a little bit better than I expect, but I wasn't really expecting that much.

The film is about five best mates from Sydney who love AC/DC and are in their own hard rock garage band. They go to a concert of theirs in 1991 and have a great time. While admiring a poster of Bon Scott, the late AC/DC member, the young guys avoid a run in with a car. They take it as a sign, take down the poster of Bon, and make a promise that if any of them does die, then the others would bury them next to Bon Scott in Fremantle, Western Australia. Twelve years later, their band and their friendship is all but broken up. One's now a drug dealer, one works in a supermarket, one still lives with his parents recording demos, one used to be a bouncer, and one's dead, hit by lighting. Yes, you could almost say he was "Thunderstruck"! The guys see this as a sign and remember their promise, reuniting, nabbing the ashes of their mate from his vain ex-wife and head across thousands of kilometres of outback towards Fremantle, to unite their dead friend with his hero. But will they make it?

As in many other Australian films, there are many cameo appearances from Australian celebrities. There's rock group Killing Heidi (playing themselves), there's Quentin Kenihan the wheelchair bound Australian director (who plays a paralympian with road rage), and there's late night host Roy Slaven (who plays a petrol station owner). There may have been some others I didn't recognize in there too.

One of the reasons I don't like Australian film that much is the way everything looks like it was recorded ten years before it actually was.
