Format: DVD
I grew up with Thunderbirds and for me at least Thunderbirds was about the machines and the rescue *not* the people and it was a *serious* business. Even though I was a child, I expected those machines to be driven by adults not children, and even though the program was made 'for children' it made few concessions to its audience.

Which is just about everything that makes the film such a failure. Where are the machines, where are the slow-mo lingering shots of TBird2 on its launch ramp and blasting off and all that other stuff. What we get is a film about teenage angst in the Tracey family which is emphatically *not* Thunderbirds. There are occasional sniffs of what the film could have been, but they all point up just how dire this effort is. If you're old enough to remember films made by the Childrens Film Foundation, then this owes more to those films than to Thunderbirds.

The people who made this film should have remembered that there were five stars of the original series. They were the Thunderbirds, their guest stars included whatever else happened to come crawling or sliding out of a TBird 2 pod. Human beings, their wants, needs and emotions coming a not very close third.

I'd find it hard to believe that anyone who's ever watched and enjoyed the TV series finding anything of merit in this film.

It speaks volumes in our fast-moving world that the original Thunderbirds television series still looks futuristic after nearly 45 years.

Against that, this Americanised live-action version is already looking a little dated after only five.

Of course, maybe the buyer of this DVD doesn't care about some ancient history and just wants to know if this film is worth getting.

Fans of the television series will know that what mattered was the saving of people in danger ("We're gonna die, Joe! we're gonna die!" "NO! Here come International Rescue") and the procedures to launch each of the Thunderbird craft, especially numbers 1 and 2.

Neither of these elements features in the film - a monorail crashes into the Thames and we experience hardly a creak nor a twang (cf National Theatre of Brent) from the perspective of those trapped. The launches are perfunctory affairs.

Instead, we find that the baddies are led by a sleepwalking Ben Kingsley as a decidedly non-Oriental Hood and, in a shameless display of ignorant sexism, Rose Keegan (Transom) is introduced rear-end-first as "foxy" (supposed to be good) but it is then revealed she has "bad teeth" (I quote - "eeuw") (which is supposed to be the reaction). Why does she try to get it on with Brains? Why should we care?

On the one hand, the Tracy brothers look a bit like a toothpaste advert (even Alan is wearing a brace) but on the other they are irredeemably scruffy. Even the International Rescue uniform has become a kind of grey overalls...

And the focus of the action is Tracy Island.

In fact, this film's central character could be Bill or Ted but is actually Alan Tracy, who is involved in a chase caper across Tracy Island.

My son loves it, I wanted the original puppet series!
Good escapist nonesense for the young and the toys are great to re enact the film. If your 30 plus though, get the original series instead!

One serious question "Did the writers even the watch the original Thunderbirds series?!!" I mean, many adaptation of television series are not the most faithful like Inspector Gadget, The Flintstones and Mr. Magoo but this, this was just awful. For any strong Thunderbirds/Gerry Anderson follower, you will feel slapped in the face.

The film was almost simply aimed at pre/early-teens. The characters seemed ridiculously young for their parts. Nearly all the characters in the original series were adults but here, I am sure that Lady Penelope was played by a 12-year-old. The CGI was a mess. The space background looked low budget and the rockets itshelves has lost a lot of its uniqueness. The plot, I am not even going there!

This is nonsence. If you are fan, then avoid at all costs. Instead, get the original puppets films from the 60s. This will only infuriate you.

As a huge fan of the Thunderbirds series in their original form, I was looking forward to the release of this film. I have to say I was bitterly disappointed. In fact it's the only time I've actually walked out of a film theatre in the middle of a film. Awful does not describe it well enough. It is absolutely dismal. I am a great fan of Jonathan Frakes (who directed this movie) in Star Trek, The Next Generation, but in directing this shambles, what was he thinking??? This film could best be described as a ridiculous unfunny comedy attempting to pillory the original series. If I could give this 0 stars I would. Don't waste your money on this insult to Gerry Anderson's original creation. You're better off buying the DVD set of the whole Thunderbirds series.
