Director John Flynn's Rolling Thunder (1977), written by Paul Schrader and Heywood Gould, is a classic 70s revenge film. William Devane plays a former Vietnam POW who returns after seven years of imprisonment to a son he didn't know and a wife who wants a divorce-he is having trouble . He is rewarded none community. Some bad people want to relieve him of his new earning sand with a new car and money from his San Antonio home. They destroy his hand and kill his son and wife after making off with the money. He is dedicated to hunting them down and when he does, he enlists his former fellow POW Tommy Lee Jones to help him get revenge in a whore house in Laredo, Mexico. Apparently Schrader thought the film was to sentimental and not as edgy as his original screenplay. I thought it was a well-made revenge flick-very much a product of the 70s.
