Reviews:  The deep love that young boys feel for planes, cars, and gadgets is the driving energy of "Thunderbirds", a live-action movie based on the British puppet TV show of the 1960s. Bill Paxton ("Near Dark", "One False Move") plays Jeff Tracy, billionaire ex-astronaut, who's turned his family of heroic sons into a crack rescue squad, zooming to danger and saving people using super-sophisticated vehicles. The youngest boy (Brady Corbet) hasn't yet joined the team and resents every moment he's not in uniform--but he gets his chance when a malevolent villain called the Hood (Ben Kingsley, slumming a bit from "Gandhi" and "Sexy Beast") traps the rest of the family on a crippled space station and turns the Thunderbird vehicles to his evil purposes. Expect bright colors, clumsy dialogue, and a less-than-thrilling plot, but many kids will enjoy the fantasy of a secret island, rocket ships, and flying cars. "--Bret Fetzer"
