Thunderbirds (2004) Having narrowly averted a major disaster on an oil rig, the Thunderbirds have just returned home to their secret base when TB5, their space based station, is critically damaged in a suspected meteor strike. Unbeknown to them, the attack on TB5 is a deliberate ploy by international master criminal Aristotle Spode to get them off the island. He takes over the island and forces Brains into submission, using the power of his mind. But Spode has overlooked one key factor: Alan, Fermat and Tin Tin are still on the island.

Movie Quote(s):
  • The Hood: [controlling Brains telepathically] Like a puppet on a string!
  • The Hood: Who will rescue the rescuers?
  • [last lines] Jeff Tracy: Thunderbirds are go!
  • Virgil Tracy: Haven't you got homework to do or something
  • Alan Tracy: Keep backing up... I've got a plan. Alan Tracy: [Alan pulls out a rock catapult, aims it at The Hood and misses] Tintin: That's your plan? The Hood: It's not me you're angry at, Alan. Alan Tracy: It's not you I'm aiming at. Alan Tracy: [He shoots again hitting the console behind the Hood. The floor beneath Alan, TinTin and Fermat collapses] Alan Tracy, Tintin, Fermat: Ahhhhhh The Hood: Get Them!
Movie Trivia:
  • As the young Thunderbirds prepare to launch towards The Bank of London with Lady Penelope, an insert shot shows a hand grabbing a lever. This hand is held up by strings, a quick reference to the style of animation used in the Thunderbirds television series. Also, this is in a complete reversal to the series, as all shots in the TV show were of marionettes, except when there was an extreme closeup of a hand or foot, at which point was replaced with a person's hand or foot doing the required action (pulling a switch, stepping on the gas pedal of a car, etc.)
  • To promote the film, British distributors UIP took over Trafalgar Square with a 3/4-scale model of Thunderbird 3.
  • The five brothers were originally named after five of the "Mercury Seven" - John Glenn, Scott Carpenter, Alan Shepard, Virgil Gus Grissom, and Gordon Cooper.
  • The Hood's two main assistants are named with architectural terms for vertical (Mullion) and horizontal (Transom) pieces used in the construction of doors or windows.
  • The Hover Bike used by Alan to tow Tin-Tin and Fermat is modeled on the same equipment used by the Tracy brothers in episodes such as "City Of Fire" and "Attack Of The Alligators!" from the original series.
