Thunder Force Reviews

April 12, 2021
Despite two talented actresses, Ben Falcone's wannabe comedy is tacky and tepid, a dismal drag.
April 12, 2021
Thunder Force is awkward, poorly executed, and overly familiar. There are a handful of gags that work, but they can't quite save the experience.
April 12, 2021
Thunder Force illustrates what happens when filmmakers take a moderately interesting premise and surround it with witless writing, cringe-inducing acting, stagnant action, humor-deprived comedy, and feckless drama.
April 12, 2021
Through too much of Thunder Force, McCarthy makes do with dialogue and situations that are serviceable at best.
April 11, 2021
The effort is slight, but "Thunder Force" will make you laugh out loud even though you probably know better.
April 11, 2021
Thunder Force is billed as a superhero comedy, but plenty of straight superhero movies are far funnier.
April 11, 2021
Thunder Force always goes for the cheap laugh, except without the actual laughing.
April 11, 2021
Barely flavored with any actual jokes.
April 10, 2021
Thunder Force has the germ of an interesting idea, but it all falls by the wayside in a mess of montages and schticky non sequiturs...a comedy with too few laughs, a genre skewering that never quite skewers...All in all, not so super.
April 10, 2021
A funny female friendship for much of the first hour becomes just so much nonsense in the second.
April 10, 2021
It might not leap any tall narratives in a single bound, but in the end it still saves the day in its own, relaxed way. Still super, even it if it's not spectacular.
April 10, 2021
An action comedy directed by someone without an eye for either action or comedy.
April 10, 2021
...Thunder Force is inoffensive, reasonably measured in its gentle parody of exhausted tropes, and confidently performed by the two leads. But it's also half-cooked and uninspired...
April 10, 2021
Thunder Force is a different type of gambit. Superheroics aside, the film fits neatly into the wheelhouse of director Ben Falcone
April 10, 2021
Ben Falcone and Melissa McCarthy films will continue till morale improves, it seems.
April 10, 2021
It's full of creaky jokes, baffling design choices, and sections that suffer from strangely poor production values. Even Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer, usually excellent performers, feel off their game in roles that should be fun.
April 10, 2021
After Superintelligence, Tammy, Life of the Party and The Boss -- all directed by Falcone for his wife -- this is another hit-and-miss effort, not quite hitting as much as it misses.
April 10, 2021
I found it hilarious, and it's 100% on the shoulders of Octavia Spencer and Melissa McCarthy. They're brilliant in it.
April 9, 2021
Thunder Force is light and fun entertainment, taking what other films would deem as "unlikely" heroes and saying they are far from it.
April 9, 2021
A comedic dud that's aptly titled, since it makes loud noises without really needing to be seen. The one thing unlikely to be heard during this Netflix superhero spoof is a whole lot of laughter.
