Goofs

When the team is getting their orders for the second rescue of the Zero-X crew, Jeff declares that Thunderbird 2's #4 cargo pod carries air-to-air rescue equipment. This is a major goof. Pod 4 is specially equipped with Thunderbird 4's launch ramp. It can carry additional small things as well, but not the equipment Jeff stated. See more »

Classic Kiddie Movie Fun
2 August 2001 | by SchlockmeisterSee all my reviews

Oh, what a wonderful movie this was to me when I was a child of the sixties! Just enough British sensibility to be "foreign" and different, enough action and plot to hold my interest and, probably pretty important, the rocket ships and planes resembled my 1960s toys so it made me want to rush home and play with them, imagining very closely that I too was a member of the Thunderbird team. Seeing this again after all these years, it still retains some of that playtime magic and I can still see why it held my sttention as a youth. Recommended for the young and (forgive the hopeless cliche, but it is the only one that fits...) young at heart.
