4.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgia galore! FAB!, 5 Nov. 2002
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Thunderbirds Are Go - The Movie [DVD] [1966] (DVD)
Thunderbirds FAB was one of the first films I saw as a child at the cinema.
You can imagine my excitement back then - a chance to see a big screen version of my favourite television show in glorious colour (tvs back then were only black and white!)
Now, you can watch the movie on the small screen. All the elements of the show are there - the Thunderbird launch sequences, the gadgets and gizmos and a few added surprises to including Cliff Richard and the shadows.
The bigger screen you have, the better, because the film was shot in superwide screen format, but it has been cropped for DVD unfortunately and ruins the directors setups from time to time.
A bit more effort could have been put into the restoration: The picture is a bit dodgy from time to time and the sound a bit wobbly.
Overall, its an enjoyable romp and worth adding to your Sylvia and Gerry Anderson collection. Watch the film with the directors and producers commentary on to learn just how much effort went into making these puppet spectaculars.
