Thunder and Lightning has just about everything in the action department but Dracula loping after Frankenstein’s monster, packing thrills and fast movement as stunt drivers have their day in some wild pic mileage.

Film picks up in tempo and ends on a socko note as David Carradine, an irrepressible booze runner, competes with girl-friend Kate Jackson’s pop in his chosen field.

Script laces comedy with the action, and director Corey Allen expertly maneuvers his chase sequences with stunting both with Everglade buggies and fast cars on the highways.

Carradine shows he has the stuff of which action stars are made, and distaffer Jackson lends a distracting note as an actress who doesn’t mind getting her hair mussed.
