Thunder in Paradise

Genre: Action/Adventure, Comedy; Starring: Carol Alt, Chris Lemmon, Hulk Hogan; Director: Douglas Schwartz; MPAA Rating: PG-13

THUNDER IN PARADISE Terry ”Hulk” Hogan, Carol Alt (1993, Vidmark, PG-13, $92.95) With an eye patch, a bandanna tied around his head, and a lot of muscle and determination, Hogan’s soldier of fortune R. J. Hurricane Spencer speeds into Cuba to help a woman and her child escape political imprisonment. Later, the one-man platoon, whose voice has all the dramatic inflection of a computer, finds buried treasure and fights off a small army in a script so simplistic it might have been written by grade schoolers. The ”Thunder” of the title refers to a state-of-the-art speedboat-cum- seafaring weapon that Hogan talks to in a corny kind of way, as if it were human. Thunder’s enjoyable enough-on its own very dumb terms. C
