Thunderbirds DVD Review

The Tracy family is always on alert - ready to save peeps in danger at the drop of a hat. But one member of the family, Alan Tracy, is still too young to help out with any of the Thunderbird missions. Will Alan ever get a chance to spread his wings and prove that he's not a little kid anymore? Find out with Kidzworld's review of Thunderbirds!

Thunderbirds - From TV to the Big Screen

The Thunderbirds movie is a remake of a British TV show from the 1960s. Ask the 'rents about it - chances are they watched the show when they were younger. This time around, the flick is live-action (the show's characters were puppets, not people), and they're faced with an important dilemma. The Thunderbirds' arch nemesis, The Hood, was thought to be dead, but he's back and he's about to take on his biggest crime yet - robbing the Bank of London!

Thunderbirds - High Flying Fun

When The Hood sets up a diversion so that he can sneak onto the Thunderbirds' secret lair in the South Pacific, the only one able to save the day this time is the youngest of the Tracy clan, Alan Tracy. He and his two friends, Fermat and Tin-Tin have been grounded for Spring Break for playing around with one of the Thunderbird aircrafts, so they're the only ones around when The Hook invades the Thunderbirds' base. Despite everyone's doubt, Alan and his friends know exactly what to do when The Hood arrives. They launch into action and hold down the fort until the rest of the Thunderbirds are able to return.

Thunderbirds - Crash and Burn

For the most part, Thunderbirds is a solid flick. But, there were some cheesy parts that might annoy you. Jeff Tracy (played by Bill Paxton) pulls a lot of typical dad lines out of his hat (you know, the "dad knows best" ones) that will have you rolling your eyes. Also, Alan's older bros may be nice to look at, but that's about it - the elder Thunderbird boys don't have more than two lines in the whole flick.

Thunderbirds - DVD Features

Jump aboard and join the Thunderbirds for some high-flying adventure with this great DVD. The movie is packed full of cool gadgets and crazy technology and the DVD takes a look at how they were designed and used in the film. The DVD also lets you gain access to top secret Thunderbird files - including rehearsal footage! Check out a music video from Britain's boy band, Busted, as well.

Thunderbirds - Bottom Line

The special effects are pretty rad in Thunderbirds and there are a ton of cool characters that you'll get to know. Lady Penelope, Jeff Tracy's right-hand man... er, woman, is totally great and Alan's buds, Fermat and Tin-Tin are a lot of fun too. Thunderbirds is a definite crowd pleaser - it's got action and special effects, as well as a budding romance between Alan and Tin-Tin. Take the 'rents or take your crush, either way you'll enjoy the Thunderbirds.
