User Reviews

Appalling, cheap and lamer than a 3 legged racehorse.
30 January 2018 | by lord_presidentSee all my reviews

Why make a version of a classic story when the first thing you are going to do is throw the source material in the woodchipper? The lore was muddled, the costumes dreadful (nylon fleecy fabric and on screen zippers), the jokes laboured, the fights even more laboured and Thunderbirds has a less wooden cast. It's hard to see where the money went, ANY money.
