** "City of Fire" has the huge Thompson Tower go up in flames due to a simple accident and faulty fire-prevention equipment. Which is very reminiscent of [[The Grenfell Tower fire. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grenfell_Tower_fire]].

* NeverLiveItDown: Fans tend to give Lady Penelope a lot of flack for her [[WomanDrivers bad driving]] and her [[EekAMouse fear of mice]] despite the fact that these "faults" only appeared in one episode.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Sophia Myles's portrayal of Lady Penelope was received well, being recognised as true to the spirit of the original character. To a lesser extent, Ron Cook's Parker was praised too.

* CutAndPasteTranslation: The redubbed half-hour version from Fox Kids, as well as the truly hideous ''Turbocharged Thunderbirds''.

* SpiritualLicensee: Until ''WesternAnimation/ThunderbirdsAreGo'' came along, some felt that Creator/{{Nelvana}}'s ''WesternAnimation/RescueHeroes'' series ([[MerchandiseDriven designed to tie-in with]] Creator/FisherPrice toys) was the closest thing to a ''Thunderbirds'' cartoon.



* CreatorKiller: Creator/JonathanFrakes film directing career came to a crashing halt after the film tanked at the box office - all his subsequent gigs have been in television.

* IAmNotShazam: Hardly ever is International Rescue ever referred to as "International Rescue" (at least in dialogue, the name is still quite visible on some of the Thunderbird craft and various computer screens). The rest of the time, they're the "Thunderbirds", despite that being the name of the ''craft'', not the organization itself. Could be justified when one considers how [[{{Defictionalization}} a real-life International Rescue]] actually began operations some time after the original series ended, [[RealLifeWritesThePlot which might've caused some]] InUniverse conflict. Another reason might be that, in-universe, people just called them the Thunderbirds because they didn't know the IR name, and the Tracys and crew [[GotMeDoingIt then started using it out of habit.]] (Universal's marketing department didn't seem to get the memo- trailers and TV spots continued to refer to International Rescue.)

* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: Bill Paxton plays his part quite well when the chips are down, and Sophia Miles and Ron Cook both delivered solid performances.

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: While the redesigns themselves are deemed creative, but poor as redesigns, the Thunderbird vehicles were positively badass-looking in CGI; the oil-rig rescue scene was also impressive.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: In ''Thunderbirds are GO!'' the musical number sung by Cliff Richard (Jr.) seems out of place with the rest of the film. Even though it did happen in Alan's dream, it's out of place within that context too.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The end credits song by British boyband {{Music/Busted}} "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzqSOO6B_Fw Thunderbirds are Go]]" is one of the few things of the movie that's remembered fondly. Hans Zimmer's score was also excellent, as usual for him.

* RetroactiveRecognition: Arguably the only worthwhile aspect of the 2004 movie, for adolescent males at least, was Tin-Tin being played by a pre-''HighSchoolMusical'' Vanessa Hudgens.
