Critic Reviews for Thunder Road

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4)

Driven by Cummings' transfixingly vulnerable performance, the movie not only justifies returning to the source: Shockingly, it does so without even using the device that seemed key to the short's success.

It walks so many fine lines between comedy and drama that the balancing act is exhilarating to watch.

March 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Thunder Road lands on a tragic development, but upends it with a single teary-eyed moment that hints - with no real evidence - that better things may be around the corner.

Cummings is a born filmmaker who plants seedlings of raw drama that sprout in unexpected and moving ways.

March 14, 2018 | Full Review…

As both writer and director, Cummings proves his mettle time and again, swerving madly from comedy to tragedy without missing a beat, proficient at both genres.

April 10, 2018 | Full Review…

Uncompromisingly challenging at times, Jim Cummings' feature-length adaptation of his award-winning 2016 short film Thunder Road offers a unique portrait of a tightly wound lawman on the verge of a nervous breakdown.
