Audience Reviews for Thunderbirds

    This is a bad film, just bad. The filmmaker plays this out like some jokey throw back, but the tone is inconsistent. The characters are one dimensional and you can see why this film went through various directors over the years. Frakes has gone to director jail and I can't say all this is his fault, I'm assuming he was a gun for hire and this was not his vision. The acting is chewy and the ham factor is dialled up to 11, becoming tiresome to watch. A major letdown and just a bad film that has no real redeeming qualities. 10/04/2019

    Thunderbirds could have been a good movie, all it needed was say something to do with the series or a good script without simplistic dialgoue.

    When I was a kid, I used to watch the Thunderbirds, I thought the show was excellent, fun and Thrilling. I was a little skeptical about watching this film, as it looked like a kids film, and it also looked like the film makers didn't know what they were doing. Boy was I right. Ths film is Aan insult to the original series, and it's fans. They could've at least made a film that the whole family could love, but instead they made a crap film. With it's child oriented humour, the film is a faillure even by child oriented film standards. This film was amusing, but it wore off, and the fact that they 'reinvented' the look and style of the original series was just wrong. They could have at least try to make a film that the entire family could love, instead they simply made this film for kids, this was honestly a bad move. One of the reasons why is becase the original fans of the series were born in the 60's and grew up watching Thunderbirds, my dad grew up on it, and he made me watch it when I was a kid. Anyhow, the film is terrible because every actor here seems miscast for the part, the story is lame, and the actors are plainly silly. Ben Kingsly was a joke in this film, not even his talent could redeem such a horrid picture. I really was hoping for something terrific on screen. Instead we were given a total joke of a movie. The nostalgic feel of this film is absent. The only good thing that came out of this film is that it will reiinforce the status of the original series more. Watch the series instead instead of this filth. This is a film that should not have been made.
