Plot

Seven years after a daring bank robbery involving an anti-tank gun used to blow open a vault, the robbery team temporarily puts aside their mutual suspicions to repeat the crime after they are unable to find the loot from the original heist, hidden behind a school chalkboard. The hardened artilleryman and his flippant, irresponsible young sidekick are the two wild cards in the deck of jokers.

Critical Reception

” Thunderbolt & Lightfoot was overlooked back in the day, United Artists must have been insane not to push, or help sparkle such a strong piece of golden nugget that was laid amongst so many other rough pebbles.” – Paul -IMDB

“Cimino created the part for Eastwood and in doing so drew greatly on his actual personality‚Ķ For those people who know the real Clint Eastwood, no film part better conveys the style, the warmth, and the dry delivery of the man himself.” – ironside – IMDB
