There is an old made for TV movie called "Thunderboat Row" if you can find. Best boat movie thus far.

I don't care about his beliefs but that "Battlefield Earth" almost got me to quit watching him.

I have to say JT can play any role. I don't care about his lifestyle I've actually met him numerous times at my gym when he is in Miami taking flying certifications and he is a really cool dude.
Can't wait to see flick. Grew up during the cocaine cowboy days

I think, next to George Clooney, JT is the most overrated actor in Hollywood.

Thanks for posting that, I don't care about Travolta much but this movie will be one I'd like to see.

I read the book "Blue Thunder" by Thomas Burdick a few years ago and couldn't put it down. Hopefully this movie will be just as interesting and factual.

Bump, watching it now On Demand. The action scenes are super cheesy and the outboards and boats from the 90s-2000s peppered into scenes from the 60s-70s are annoying, though general public will probably never notice. Interesting story but so far, poorly executed.

Fiance's Dad has 35 magnum so I would like to see this one. Hopefully it will have lots of old boats in it. I don't care who acts the parts, just interested in the story and boats.
