Okay, if you have not watch Thunderbirds (live action) by Jonathan Frakes (Commander Riker from ST:TNG) it’s worth a peek. If you are or were a fan of the show, there are still a few elements to have the feel of the original show much like watching Speed Racer movie compared to the anime series. And yes, there will be things to drive you batty.
One of the most odd thing to watch or listen to in this case is Bill Paxton. While I always love him in any role, being the leader of the Thunderbirds while speaking like Robert Wagner can be distracting. Same goes to watching Timothy Olyphant – Agent 47 from the Hitman movie from 2007. The delivery of the Wagner is suave and yet, even in a dire straits its not frantic.
Another piece of information to note as to why you should view this is because of Sophia Myles who plays Lady Penelope. When I saw her in this film, there was an eerie resemblance to Yvonne Strahovski – Sarah Walker from Chuck. (Another must see geeky tv series.) But I was wrong, Sophia was in Doctor Who – The Girl in the Fireplace -Madame de Pompadour. Take a look below and you be the judge.
As you’ve read, you have some reason to what this movie. Let me know what you think of Thunderbirds.
