    A fun afternoon for preteen moviegoers that has just enough charm, humor and game- for-anything actors to keep parents halfway interested as well. show more

    Fun at times and tedious at others, it's an action-adventure fantasy aimed particularly at gadget-loving boys. show more

    Philadelphia Inquirer

    It's clean and cheerful entertainment, blithely piggybacking on a beloved classic. No wonder Anderson washed his hands of this project - the filmmakers tampered with and trampled on his magic formula. show more

    Smartly written by William Osborne and Michael McCullers, Thunderbirds expertly targets kids. Yet parents won't be entirely bored. show more

    Kids are most likely to be entertained by this live-action offering, although baby-boomer fans of the series will appreciate how closely it hews to the show's foundation. show more

    Making a live-action version of Thunderbirds is like rounding out the edges on a Picasso painting to render it more realistic. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    A movie like this is harmless, I suppose, except for the celluloid that was killed in the process of its manufacture, but as an entertainment, it will send the kids tiptoeing through the multiplex to sneak into "Spider-Man 2." show more
