The original British television series, which starred a troupe of wide-eyed "supermarionettes", ran from 1965 to 1966; though visually appealing to children, it had a sophistication and charm that paid homage to James Bond. Yet, instead of a serious action movie centred around the family team, this new version of the Thunderbirds focuses on a group of adolescents who -- however unlikely -- are able to save the day. Thus, it is a huge blunder to create a story aimed at kids who have never heard of the Thunderbirds, whilst alienating nostalgic boomers with its preposterous storyline.
Star Trek: The Next Generation alumnus Jonathan Frakes directed, but once again demonstrates he is incapable of bringing any inspiration to a film. Even the opening credits are lacklustre...the pre-eminent puppets would have made more of an impact than simple cartoons. Further, we hardly get to see the Tracy's jungle island hideaway, or their custom-designed vehicles. Clearly inspired by such fare as Spy Kids, the screenplay is unimaginative and hollow -- what's exciting about a villain whose ultimate goal is to rob banks? Further, while the original program set events in the year 2065, the film takes place in the present day.
Corbet is eager in the lead role, giving the film much-needed vitality.Read more ›
