Thn’s Guilty Pleasures Day 11: Thunderbirds

11 August 2012 3:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

In the 1960s it took the world by storm, and today it is still regarded as one of the best-loved and innovate television series of the 20th Century. The daring adventures of the Tracy Brothers and International Rescue, selflessly risking their lives to save others, showcasing the work of special effect master Derek Meddings with cutting edge technology and equipment which even now is out of our grasp in the really real world.

A film version had the potential to be a 21st century Towering Inferno, keying into the tragedies and disasters of recent years and providing hope and thrills to a new generation. So what went wrong?

It starts so well, with a fantastic revision of the series’ opening theme, the names of the cast integrated into a quirkily, retro-tastic style showcase, scored by wunder-composer Hans Zimmer. And then the Thunderbirds themselves roar into action at an oil rig fire. »
