THUNDER FORCE (Netflix Release USA 2021)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì 

Thunder Force—superheroine action movie—serves up two superheroines, acted by Octavia Spencer and Melissa McCarthy. Different spin on an old storyline somewhat works due to the casting but the story needs some rewriting of dialogue and the movie itself needs tweaking on its pacing to work well. The conclusion’s last ten to twenty minutes work on the absurd but concludes well. From beginning to ending, it’s obvious that the film designs itself to be a television series and that focus becomes so difficult to ignore that the movie’s force becomes lost. Young audiences who love superhero/superheroine comics most likely will enjoy this movie.

? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. Strong attempts to invoke comedy make the movie a lazy afternoon, easy-on-the-mind watch.
