    When I was 7 or 8, I made all those models & had character figures. I saw the preview of the film in Japan, and looked good. I don't remember much as I haven't seen them for more than 30 years now, but still this is the movie I must see this summer.

    Isn't "Thunderbird" English program??

    I grew up watching these guys every year, because my dad was a career fighter jock and knew several of the pilots over the years. They are among the best in the world and put a new defintion to the word discipline.

    When I saw that it would be real actors and not the cool puppets/models I was pretty bummed out. Pass.

    Ooops... wrong Thunderbirds! My brothers grew up watching this show and I grew up watching the real Air Force T-Birds.

    Boy am I old!

    Yeah, it is REALLY too bad. Reviews in newspapers & magazines were pretty bad, and young moviegoers may not be interested in this OLD movie. (my kids said this when I asked)

    I just hope it'll do good on other countries.

    While I sighed in disbelief at the trailer, I think this will probably do well on video and make it's money back. Little kids will like to have it I think.

    I watched the original with the marionettes. I took my 6 and 8 yo boys to see the movie this weekend and they loved it. My 6yo ranks the Thunderbirds with PowerRangers and Rescue Heroes.
