Blast off into interplanetary adventure with the first feature-length film starring the International Rescue team: millionaire ex-astronaut Jeff Tracy, his five stalwart sons, the fabulous secret agent Lady Penelope and, of course, their incredibly futuristic fleet of Thunderbird rescue ships! When the might spaceship Zero X is sabotaged on its first take-off for Mars, International Rescue is summoned to provide security for the second launch attempt. But after the ship successfully reaches its destination, it is attacked by rampaging alien life forms! Once again, the brave and resourceful International Rescue team is called into action. Can the team help the damaged ship re-enter Earth's atmosphere and prevent a crash-landing with devastating consequences?

By M. Hart on September 5, 2004
Format: DVD
Between September 1965 and December 1966, British TV viewers had the opportunity to watch a program featuring a family (the Tracy's) represented by marionettes. The family members had devoted themselves to rescuing others (also played by marionettes) who had gotten themselves into various forms of trouble, usually due to some type of technical difficulty, weather or sabotage. Calling themselves "International Rescue", the Tracy family was more popularly known by the various high-tech vehicles that they used: the Thunderbirds, which was also the name of the TV program.

Consisting of 32 episodes (26 during its first season and 6 during its second), BBC-TV cancelled "The Thunderbirds" early into its second season. Knowing that their show had been cancelled, the show creators, Gerry and Sylvia Anderson, produced a feature length film entitled "Thunderbirds Are Go" that was released in British theaters 10 days before the final television episode aired on December 25, 1966. The film's fictional story was about the first manned space flight to Mars using a spacecraft called "Zero-X". On take-off, the Zero-X crashes. Two years later, an investigative committee concludes that the crash was due to sabotage. With the impending take-off of the second Zero-X mission, mission commanders decide to ask International Rescue for assistance with security. However, International Rescue has never provided security, as its mission has been limited to helping those who are already in trouble. After thinking it over, John Tracy (voice of Ray Barrett) decides to assist.

My son (age 6) came across another T-birds movie at the video store & wouldn't stop talking about it, so I looked here & discovered Thunderbirds Are GO. Well, my kid now thinks I am the coolest dad in history. He's watched it faithfully twice a day for a week--I'm begining to worry! When I found that it was a 34 year old film I was astounded with its quality of character development and technical accuracy (I'm an aerospace journalist)--much of the story is plausible if we could ever afford it! The dream sequence is hilarious. I especially like "Brains" a 60's era Nerd who helps the Thunderbirds. All he needs is a pocket protector.
I hope someone makes a new release of the other T-birds titles.

As a child, I enjoyed Gerry Anderson's other supermarionation productions; Supercar, Stingray, and most notably Fireball XL5. When Fireball went off the air, I was despondent until the release of the Thunderbirds. I watched the television broadcasts religiously. Thunderbirds Are Go and Thunderbird 6 are fantastic movies that are now being enjoyed daily by my four year and myself. My only critisism is that the full complement of craft are not represented in either of the feature length productions. Anyway, I'm happy to see the television broadcasts are being released February 27, 2001. That is my birthday and my son (and daughter) have promised me this special gift. F.A.B. Here's to living in the futuristic past. ~T

You are lucky to have a chance to get this film. First, quality videos of all the Supermarionation pieces are few and far between. If you have had to rely on bootlegs, you won't want to miss this chance to see a crystal clear version! If only it had been letterboxed!
The famous dream sequence is worth the price of the video alone. Lady P is perfect, never more ravishing than when she whisks him away -haven't we all versions of this dream? I know I have.
I also think the camera work is very good. And the music, God! Also amazing. Buy it while you still can.

Zero X is man's first mission to Mars. Unfortunately, sabotage destroys the first attempt and so two years later International Rescue is called to oversee the successful launch. Later after a dangerous encouter on Mars the crew of Zero X is again in danger when one of the support wings is damaged and sends the craft crashing to earth. International Rescue is again called to save the day and the lives of ther men. I can say that Thunderbirds Are Go is one of the few movies I have seen over and over again. But then I've been a fan for years. When one considers the technical detail of the show alone, it is impressive - the first movie to be filmed in Supermarionation. Derek Meddings got his experience as SFX man in these programmes. Consider also the impact of the rerun in non-US countries of the original serties after over 30 years Thunderbirds has a great following, perhaps only after Star Wars and Star Trek. Children from all ages will be fascinated by these life-like toys and dolls (okay puppets). Should you buy it? F.A.B! END

Just to briefly correct the reviewer from Massachusetts on July 2nd, this film does NOT use footage from Captain Scarlet as Scarlet was filmed AFTER this - the only link being a Zero-X mission. It is good to see a TV series transcend so well to the big screen, the effects work (considering this was filmed in 1966) is A-1, Zero-X is a stunning piece of hardware and the Martian Rock Snakes scenes are some of tne most eerie and spectacular in the picture. Pure escapism!
