  Not a good sign: The marionettes from "Thunderbirds," the '60s British TV program for children, display more life and appeal than the flesh-and-blood humans who play the same characters in the live-action feature-film update of the series. Built around the do-gooder Tracy family and its fleet of high-tech rescue vehicles, this glorified puppet show is now a quasi-blockbuster with a bland script, art direction that's faithful to the original, and decent CGI enhancement. As the Tracys, Bill Paxton and a pack of interchangeable younger actors are, uh-oh, wooden. Even venerated actor Ben Kingsley can't do much with the underwritten role of telekinetic villain The Hood, whose liberal use of eye shadow is his most evil trait. Rather than key on team leader Jeff Tracy (Paxton) or other adults, the movie tries to emulate the success of the child-friendly "Spy Kids" flicks: It fixates on Jeff's pubescent son Alan and two of his peers as they scurry to save the incapacitated Tracy clan and the world from the Hood. Without Sophia Myles' frothy turn as pretty-in-pink not-so-secret-agent Lady Penelope, "Thunderbirds" would be useless for anyone over 12. With verve, beauty, a karate-savvy manservant and a truly convertible pink sports car capable of traversing land, sea and air, Myles is like the reincarnation of Emma Peel from the TV classic "The Avengers." Alas, she's only in a few scenes.
