Thunderbirds was FABBy Candygirl (12 reviews) from N. Wales , 05 Jan 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]what wasn't there to love about this film, okay so Anthony Edwards could have been replaced with a plank of wood and noone would have known the difference but I had looked forward to this film for forever and I wasn't disappointed. Brady Corbett was brilliant as Alan Tracey and the Thunderbird machines looked FAB. Jonathon Frakes did a superb job, I can't wait for the sequel.

I have no ideaBy a customer from Milton Keynes, England , 18 Jul 2007Didn't rent it, not sure why I was sent it, didn't watch it!
ThunderbirdsBy John Edlin from High Wycombe, England , 10 Jun 2007The film should have been about the characters we all grew up with and not have been based around their children. This I believe spoilt an otherwise brilliant film.
ThunderbirdsBy a customer from England , 06 Jun 2007The special effect were not bad but i expected more and the story is not very exciting.
Bring back the PuppetsBy a customer from London , 13 Apr 2007Disappointed with this film, some good FX, acting was poor, this could have been a good film.
Like T4 on valliumBy a customer from Bath, UK , 10 Apr 2007This is a stunningly awful movie for anyone who grew up with the original series.
Story? Typical American 'kids save the day' plot.
Acting? What acting? These are less than average Saturday morning teen TV serial style actors.
Casting? Huh! The head of the family must have started having children when he was about ten to have fathered the five boys. And the five boys look like a boy band. I doubt if any of them is old enough to drive a bicycle, let alone TB2.
OK, it's based on a dodgy animated series so it won't aspire to being high art. But it could have gone the route of either bang up to date action movie with great effects or it could have tried to emulate the rather wobbly feel of the original. This movie does neither and heads straight down the middle of the road to complete banality.
If you rent it let the kids watch it on their own. Don't be tempted to waste your own time on it.
