Re: Blue Thunder vs. Airwolf

Much as I enjoyed the Blue Thunder movie, i'm not sure Blue Thunder could even hurt Airwolf. Airwolf's capabilities still exceed modern helicopters (supersonic)

I enjoy watching Airwolf on hulu but I do wish they had had a bigger budget..but it does have my all time favorite TV theme

yeah it does take some of the fun out when of things when the stock footage gets way too obvious and they are uncreative about.

Prime example when the missiles are fired - cockpit shot of finger on the button, cut to missile firing from left tube. nextime it's cockpit then cut to the missile from centre tube and repeat.

It wasn't a porn film. It was a science fiction/action-conspiracy thriller with an excellent storyline and an an outstanding cast.

Not to mention a film with a serious message behind it.

Re: Blue Thunder vs. Airwolf

Both are superb in their fields, but Airwolf would have the edge in a head-to-head encounter.
Unless Scheider surprised him by flying the loop-the-loop.

Re: Blue Thunder vs. Airwolf

Never watched "Airwolf" even though I liked Jan Michael Vincent's attitude. "Blue Thunder" I saw as a sneak preview at a 5000 seat theater--totally sold out with a line around the entire building! Roy Scheider kicked ten kinds of ass back then! One of the first modern action flicks, IMO.

I love Blue Thunder and never quite got into Airwolf. But If I recall Blue Thunder was extremely vulnerable to missiles. Airwolf had a ton of them and was so much more advanced then Blue Thunder. I hate to say I think Airwolf would win.

Airwolf could do that too. Maybe they could dogfight upside-down?

Re: Blue Thunder vs. Airwolf

I think the logical progression of this thread is: Who's more badass? Frank Murphy, Stringfellow Hawke or Mitchell Gant?
Personally, I'm thinking Gant, but it's pretty close.
