★★★★★ “The film is all at once a genuine, crowd-pleasing barnstormer and an identifiable personal theme park experience.” The Playlist ★★★★½ “A cop, A character study, An instant classic.” Rolling Stone 98% Rotten Tomatoes Thunder Road plays out as a series of snapshots from Jim’s (Jim Cummings) life, exploring his experience on the police force — he’s a decorated officer who isn’t shy about using his gun and often seems to be starring in some “Keystone” version of “Cops” — and also his testy encounters with his sneering estranged wife (Jocelyn DeBoer), his distraught sister (Chelsea Edmundson), his highly supportive African-American police partner (Nican Robinson), and his daughter’s teacher (Macon Blair), who explains to him that Crystal is a problem child, always acting out, a warning that Jim can’t take in because it would get in the way of his everything-is-fi ne posture. This is one of the first dramas to dig deep into America’s heartland crisis — the crush of the spirit that has emerged from a collapsing job market and drug addiction and the underlying loss of faith. In Thunder Road, Cummings creates an indelible character who is all tangled up in that disaster, but with a stubbornness that turns into something like valour, he wriggles free of it. He saves himself by becoming a human being. It’s a relief to stop laughing at him, only to realise that you may want to cry for him..
