I think even children will find this chatty film rather dull.

Audience Reviews for Thunderbird 6


The title might confuse more moder audiences as this is the sequel to the previous film. The model making is super cool and the puppets are super disturbing. I keep expecting Chucky to walk in on a scene. A very straight forward spy adventure. Kids will love it, parents will wonder why in the world super ex-astronaut billionaire dad Jeff Tracey (who apparently has the 1960's TV-movie Dad problem lots of kids and no Mom. Change his name to cartwrigt and it's Bonaza) would risk his sons on these hazardous missions, even stranding one son up in a JLA like space station alone to monitor Earth. I know it's not suppossed to be taken that seriously but the children are watching! And what's his deal with Lady Penelope? Romantic? Platonic? Is she really the Mom?

very entertaining and unlike the previous one this was meant ot be more of a talkie than an action one a bit of dragging on at the end is the only reason why i dont rate this 100% but a pleasure to watch if you remember the t.v. series
