THUNDERBIRDS: The Better Movie!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This movie, unlike its predecessor, "THUNDERBIRDS ARE GO", is an original, fun piece of nostalgia. If you enjoyed the TV show, this movie was a great gathering of the best characters for a full-length romp around the world.Brains invents something no one takes seriously - an airship. Yet despite the ridicule he suffers for his insane idea, the company built it. And it's bound to be a huge success with the wealthy who want to combine a cruise with a flight around the world.Meanwhile, Brains is given the task of creating a new rescue craft - Thunderbird 6. This means he can't go on the maiden voyage. So, representing International Rescue on the maiden voyage of the SKYSHIP ONE, Lady Penelope Creighton-Ward, her chauffeur, Parker, and a couple of the Tracy brothers, including Alan and the lovely Tin Tin, soon find that the crew of the ship have been replaced by saboteurs. (What would an episode of Thunderbirds be without some good old sabotage?)But the purpose of the pirating of the Skyship One seems to focus on Lady Penelope for some unknown reason.Stopping at some of the most exotic locales worldwide, Penny and the boys must discover why she's being recorded, and what the purpose of the pirates is.Seems a long way to go just to lure International Rescue into a trap, but hey, this IS a show meant for kids.Of course the real surprise is the ending, when Airship One seems to be unreachable to rescue the passengers aboard, as it gets snagged on a tower, doomed to fall to the earth, killing all aboard. But the jets of the large, powerful Thunderbirds threaten to topple the huge airship as they approach. Is there a way to rescue them? What will be the new Thunderbird 6?????This is an absolute MUST-HAVE for Thunderbirds and Gerry Anderson fans. If the 32 episodes they aired is not enough for you, please get this movie! You must also get THUNDERBIRDS ARE GO!, but keep in mind this one is more original, and more fun.Please enjoy. And if you do, post a review here.Sean."
Amazing 60's fun!

"A must see film from the 60's, this is the ultimate Thunderbirds experience. All the action of the series, with great character development. The special effects and music are what we have come to expect. Thrilling, funny, and in the end, meaningful.Why can't they make movies like this anymore?"
Thunderbirds Are Go!

(4 out of 5 stars)
"Gawd, I miss this show.I remember growing up. I have many fond memories of watching the Thunderbirds television program, but, surprisingly, most people my age never heard of it. They were too busy with SPEED RACER and MAGILLA GORILLA to take Supermarionation seriously, but I never missed an episode.THUNDERBIRD 6 is the video collection telling the story of Brain's ill-fated Skyship One; once again, the International Rescue team is the target of familiar puppetry terrorists, but they save the day ... but not without an ample supply of pyrotechnics applied to hundreds of miniature missiles, tanks, and fuel silos set for an incendiary climax. Supermarionation, cleverly mixed with live action photography, make T-6 the film to watch ... with some absolutely spectacularly aerial shows of the new Thunderbird 6 plane in action.One great flick that's as spectacularly entertaining as it is laughable (every watch a puppet shot through the heart fall from a balcony? you catch my drift)."
Brains comes into the Rescue!

"My favourite bits in the movie is - (i) when Brains tells the men that he makes an airship, and then they laugh their heads off, when I see TB1 & TB2 blow up the Black Phantom's base, and when TB6 is finally launched. This is one of the best Gerry Anderson Century 21 films ever since the launch of the TV series."
