** A segment of the "Vault Of Death" score can pretty unsettling, going from quiet to loud and back again, before building up to a loud LastNoteNightmare. The contrast in volume especially dramatic when the score accompanies a scene where an explosive is about to blow open a bank door in said episode. This musical segment is also used in ''City Of Fire'', ''Brink Of Disaster'', ''Cry Wolf'', ''Danger At Ocean Deep'' and ''Path Of Destruction''. ''Give Or Take A Million'' edits out the dramatic parts at least.

* 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.




to:

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The decision to emphasise the TokenTrio of children, also making them YoungerAndHipper. Likewise the formula appears to be more akin to the ''Film/SpyKids'' movies.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: The other four Tracy brothers have barely any lines or screen time, with the focus being on Alan and the other children.
* UncertainAudience: The movie is based on a children's series from the 1960s. The filmmakers made the odd choice to market it more as a typical 2000s adventure film - when that generation of kids probably had no idea what ''Thunderbirds'' was. What's more is that the series was British, while the film was American.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The end credits song by british boyband {{Music/Busted}} "Thunderbirds are Go" is one of the few things of the movie that's remembered fondly.

Added DiffLines:

* ValuesDissonance: The sexism depicting the major female characters has become glaring:
** For instance, Tin Tin is rarely much more than a DistressedDamsel
** Even Lady Penelope gets this. For instance, she is prone to EekAMouse panics. It's even worse in "The Imposters" when she goes on a field mission in a rural area and she exudes feminine stereotypes like wearing high heels in a swamp. Would it have been beyond the imagination of the writers to think of have her wearing tailor made combat fatigues and custom machined weapons?

** Also the beginning of "The Mighty Atom" becomes this when you think of just which reactor went at [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chernobyl_disaster Chernobyl]].
**"Terror in New York City" also applies to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iran_Air_Flight_655 a certain incident with the US navy]].
