Thunder - Eine Legende ist geboren! (Bundesrepublik Deutschland)
Thunder Warrior (USA) (video title)
Thunder Warrior III (USA) (video title)
25 years after the move "Thunder" by Larry Ludman (Fabrizio De Angelis), Beat Records releases the complete remastered score (with some never released before tracks) both of "Thunder" and "Thunder 3".
These are two excellent works of Francesco de Masi whose atmospheres range from western to thrilling with romantic dives and arrangements that go from big orchestra and sometimes mix a classic style with electronic synts. Everything done without never abandoning the elegant and sinphonic stile that always distinguished the great Roman author compositions.
These works of the early 80s position themselves in a period in which italian cinema was going to disappear. Anyway, as a man who is going to die has a glimpse of vitality, also for cinema was the same: "Thunder" and "Thunder 3" as well as "Fuga dal Bronx", "Cobra Mission" and "Mad Dog" represented good action movies that had nothing to envy to other more famous products and depict how the professionality and great talent of Maestro de Masi was capable of giving life to products of great quality.
A curiosity, Thunder 3 was the first CD ever released by Beat Records (catalogue number CDF071) in the far away 1986.
