For those who don't know it, "Blue Thunder" is a new helicopter prototype that is secretly being tested by the government on its unsuspecting citizens. The helicopter is superior to anything ever built and it comes heavily armored. In the wrong hands "Blue Thunder" would be unstoppable. If you're a "Blue Thunder" fan then this DVD is the only version for you. This special edition version is presented in its 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen aspect ratio and remastered in high definition. The picture transfer and Dolby Digital 5.1 sound are truly outstanding. The 5.1 sound breathes new life into this 1983 aerial action classic and you get to hear "Blue Thunder" really roar. The movie stars Roy Scheider as the blue thunder pilot, Daniel Stern as his partner and Malcolm Mcdowell as the bad guy. This DVD contains bonus features such as commentary, theatrical trailer, storyboard galleries and making of featurettes. After comparing both DVD versions, this one was definitely the best. Thanks for flying the not so friendly skies!
