Thunderbolt and Lightfoot is given the 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen treatment, the majority aspect ratio of Cimino and he uses it well throughout the film.
Thunderbolt and Lightfoot's sound track is a digital mono track and it begs for a remastering as at times the volume can go from extreme loudness to extreme lowness.
Thunderbolt and Lightfoot make a good team as works well as a film but in terms of a DVD visually it's nice but it sounds like it needs improvement.

 Thunderbolt and Lightfoot (1974) - mistakes, nitpicks, trivia, locations   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Thunderbolt asks where they came from, Lightfoot says he has been saving them.
The night before, they escaped with only the clothes they stood up in and in Lightfoot's case he was dressed as a girl, the jacket (and the rest of his outfit he is wearing in the car) came from Goody (Geoffrey Lewis) who was killed the night before.
Lightfoot is a fast talking, quick thinking kind of guy, maybe he just found them in Goody's jacket and made up the story of saving them for a special occasion.

 Thunderbolt and Lightfoot
Thunderbolt and Lightfoot (1974) is a lackluster Clint Eastwood testosterone film.
Thunderbolt (Clint), a demolitions/munitions expert, and his sidekick Lightfoot (Jeff Bridges) are supposed to be loveable bank robbers, but that's only an illusion generated by the fact that one of their associates (played by George Kennedy) is such a creep that the lads look good in comparison.
Thunderbolt and Lightfoot is one of those post-Butch Cassidy pictures about "mismatched, kinda lovable, outlaw buddies", filled with the usual 70's prerequisites: a team caper, unnecessary nudity, generational conflicts, sad unresolved endings

 Intelliflix: Rent Thunderbolt and Lightfoot on DVD
John "Thunderbolt" Doherty (Eastwood) is a former thief whose razor-sharp wits and steely nerves made him a master of his profession, but he's about to reenter the criminal world with a new partner: Lightfoot (Bridges), a brash young drifter whose energy and exuberance give the veteran a new outlook on life.
After forming an uneasy alliance with Thunderbolt's former partners in crime (Kennedy and Lewis), they launch an amazing scheme that will test the limits of their endurance…and the power of their friendship.
Fueled by explosive action, fascinating characters and a powerfully moving climax, Thunderbolt and Lightfoot is an adventure of the highest caliber.

 DVDCC.COM: Thunderbolt And Lightfoot DVD REVIEW
Thunderbolt and Lightfoot doesn’t really go anywhere unique or original – when you get right down to it, the film is about a couple of bank robbers – but the movie is surprisingly entertaining due mostly to the two central performances.
Thunderbolt and Lightfoot was written and directed by Michael Cimino a few years before he would go on to make the infamous bomb Heaven’s Gate, and it’s completely free of the excess that plagued that film.
Still, Thunderbolt and Lightfoot is an easy going flick, and will no doubt please fans of the two leads.

 Thunderbolt and Lightfoot (1974) - A Review by David Nusair
Thunderbolt and Lightfoot doesn't really go anywhere unique or original - when you get right down to it, the film is about a couple of bank robbers - but the movie is surprisingly entertaining due mostly to the two central performances.
Lightfoot convinces Thunderbolt to rob one more bank, with the help of Red and another old associate.
As the slightly dimwitted Lightfoot, Bridges steals every scene he's in and his enthusiasm is a lot of fun.

 Thunderbolt and Lightfoot Movie Poster
Thunderbolt acquired his nickname because of his "legendary" high-powered military artillary expertise....that he uses in perpetrating crimes.
Lightfoot's real name is never revealed, not that it really matters, but apparently, "The Lightfoot" nickname arises because he lost a leg in Viet Nam.
Thunderbolt & Lightfoot isn't really a car movie, but so much time is spent in car chases in different vehicles, it pretty-well qualifies.

Thunderbolt and Lightfoot is one of those bizarre '70s films that makes you wonder how the thing ever got made in the first place.
Thunderbolt and Lightfoot is the stripped down story of a bank robber in hiding named Johnny "Thunderbolt" Doherty (Eastwood).

 Thunderbolt and Lightfoot (1974)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
I found 'Thunderbolt And Lightfoot' in the "action" section of my local video store, and a quick glance at the cover and blurb might make you think you're in for a buddy action comedy, like Eddie Murphy et al made in the 1980s and Jackie Chan is making now.
Eastwood himself is very good as enigmatic thief Thunderbolt, even better is Jeff Bridges who steals the movie as his young protege Lightfoot.
There's no way I'm going to argue that 'Thunderbolt And Lightfoot' is a forgotten classic, but it is a lot of fun to watch, it is unpredictable and interesting and features some fine performances, and that is a lot more than you can say for most subsequent Hollywood movies of this type.

 VH1.com : Movies : Movie : Thunderbolt and Lightfoot : Plot
Lightfoot (Jeff Bridges) meet cute when Thunderbolt jumps into Lightfoot's stolen car to escape a gunman.
The pair embarks on an oddball journey to get Thunderbolt's loot from an old robbery before his former associates, the sadistic Red (George Kennedy) and cretinous Goody (Geoffrey Lewis), get to it first, but all four are too late; the one-room schoolhouse hiding place has apparently vanished.
As the easy-going mediator between the two, Eastwood's Thunderbolt was a move away from his tough cop-westerner image; his audience accepted this then-atypical performance enough to turn Thunderbolt and Lightfoot into a moderate hit.

Eastwood is initially wary, possibly out of a lifetime of looking over his shoulder, but soon warms to Lightfoot, and seems to enjoy the camaraderie of the group, when they’re not at each other’s throats.
To have Thunderbolt and Lightfoot find the old schoolhouse, and then find the money was a very nice touch, heavy with irony as well.
Thunderbolt’s integrity and professionalism doesn’t allow him to fall apart at Lightfoot’s death, but he fulfills Lightfoot’s earlier wish to pay for a Cadillac with cash in a gesture that is very touching.

Thunderbolt and Lightfoot is perhaps most intriguing as the directorial debut of Michael Cimino (who also wrote the screenplay for the film).
No female characters are significantly developed, and almost exclusively serve as objects of lust for the men (as well as littering the film with the occasional nude scene).
There is some distortion in the scene in which Thunderbolt and Lightfoot hitch a ride, as they are forced to shout above the loud and bumpy car motor.

Eastwood is at the point of his career here where he was beginning to stretch his acting wings ("Thunderbolt and Lightfoot" immediately followed "Play Misty For Me" on Eastwood's resume).

Clint Eastwood plays a bank robber par excellence with a flair for explosives who is being hunted by his former partners, who think he has their loot from their last job.
Jeff Bridges almost steals the show with his portrayal of the young drifter "Lightfoot" who meets up with an older drifter the "Thunderbolt" (name given him by a newspaper after a robbery where the money had never been recovered).
The best dialogue is Lightfoot's hilarious final monologue, in which he doesn't see himself as a criminal anymore, but as someone whose done something to be proud of.

This was Cimino's only preparation as director for the epic undertakings of The Deer Hunter and Heaven's Gate, and is separated from them both in time (four years until The Deer Hunter) and in subject (a buddy love/honour among thieves caper).
The male bonding of The Deer Hunter is one connection, but Thunderbolt and Lightfoot still more or less merges with its production circumstances.
Having written the script, Cimino was given his first chance to direct by Eastwood (for whom he had previously collaborated with John Milius on Magnum Force).
