Directed by Jonathan Frakes and based on the '60s British television series of the same name, Thunderbirds chronicles the intergalactic exploits of the Tracy family. Set in 2010, the world looks toward the mysterious Tracy Island when mere international security is not enough; the remote South Pacific island not only houses former astronaut and lifelong entrepreneur Jeff Tracy (Bill Paxton) and his five sons, but also serves as headquarters for the top-secret International Rescue organization. The unthinkable happens, however, when an insidious criminal mastermind known only as "The Hood" (Ben Kingsley) manages to get past the island's innumerable security measures and attempts to take over International Rescue. His goal: stealing the organization's five most advanced rescue vehicles, each of which was designed to accomplish a specific task, and using them for his own agenda. With Jeff and his four eldest sons deployed on a mission, there's only one person with any hope of stopping the takeover -- Jeff's youngest son, Alan (Brady Corbet), who vows to save his family and keep the Thunderbirds alive.

I saw this movie twice at the theater with my son and we still enjoy this movie every now and then. The opening is clever and cute. Lady Penelope's fashion is chic. The scenery, both London and Seychelles, is spectacular. It's an action-packed feel-good movie for the entire family. My husband, grew up watching the original puppet show, loves this, too. I'm sure this movie did much better in the rest of the world. FYI, Boston Globe gave this a 3-star, not bad. Special Features are also very well-made and interesting, including a music video performed by British popular group BUSTED. Please, please give it a try. We enjoyed this through and through.

Our boys are thrilled with this movie and have already watched it several times. Even as a parent, I have enjoyed watching it (several times). Thunderbirds is every bit as good as Spy Kids and Cody Banks! Our family says "Thunderbirds are GO!"

Thunderbirds is a great family movie! When I saw this movie I couldn't stop thinking about it. I know lots of people hate it, but it's a great movie. It's FAB!
