Disappointing War Picture
8 July 2011 | by GManfredSee all my reviews

Still trying to figure out what 'everything is thunder' means. It is uttered by the hero of the film, but it's difficult to guess why or what he means. It is uttered during one of the many protracted lulls in the action - in fact, all the action is in the very beginning and the very end of the picture.

Douglass Montgomery is an escaped WW1 POW who makes his way to Berlin. There he meets Constance Bennett, and there the action stops, as the picture falls flatter than a pancake. It is a very unlikely and hurried romance as they fall in love, exchanging unusual dialogue in an as unconvincing a love story as you are likely to see. Some slight tension comes from the detective chasing him, played by Oscar Homolka, but he is underutilized.

The pacing is very uneven, as mentioned, and the picture has an unsatisfactory ending, unexpected and anticlimactic. Montgomery is a weak lead and Miss Bennett has a thankless role, and it needed a stronger director. "Everything Is Thunder" could have been a much better picture under different circumstances and in different hands, and is recommended with a caveat; don't expect too much.
