Blue Thunder (5-Feb-1983)

Director: John Badham

Writers: Don Jakoby; Dan O'Bannon

Music: Arthur B. Rubinstein

Producer: Gordon Carroll

Keywords: Action/Thriller

Police pilot Roy Scheider is assigned to test a new helicopter equipped with all the latest stealth and surveillance tech. He learns that Malcolm McDowell is involved, whom he knows from Vietnam -- not a good sign; looking into it further it seems the intentions behind Blue Thunder may not be as advertised. Tight action/thriller with good helicopter action sequences.
