Buy it... if you appreciate fun, undemanding parody action scores that aren't afraid to blend genres liberally and overstate the silliness of their themes.

Avoid it... if constant battles in tone between orchestral heroics and irreverent metal guitar and percussion leave you with no inclination to extract your preferred mode.

Thunder Force: (Fil Eisler) Comedies involving Melissa McCarthy and her husband, Ben Falcone, are the kind of distraction destined to appeal to vast swaths of bored Americans at home collecting unemployment benefits during the pandemic. Never mind the truly awful quality of Thunder Force or that it ranks among the worst of superhero parodies. The movie dominated Netflix streaming stats for weeks on end in early 2021, supplying audiences with the notion that big girls can squeeze into superhero costumes and kick ass just as well as anyone. The plot of the movie proposes that cosmic rays in 1983 bestowed upon some people superpowers and turned them evil or otherwise neurotic. Such wonderful folks are deemed Miscreants. A respectable scientist played by Octavia Spencer invents a way to inject people with a serum that gives them the same kind superpowers, and, most predictably, her pesky and annoying friend, Lydia (McCarthy), accidentally injects herself with this cocktail. Over the following month, the scientist trains her troublesome buddy and the two ultimately venture forth as the still bumbling "Thunder Force" to solve the issue of the Miscreants and their dastardly deeds. In their way are an evil super-babe named Laser and a wicked mayoral candidate nicknamed "The King," whose goal, naturally, is to run the place into the ground. A variety of other ridiculous characters scamper through the narrative, including a targeted Miscreant with crab arms (Jason Bateman, humiliatingly) who Lydia inconveniently falls in love with. It's all silly, tongue-in-cheek shenanigans that culminate in a big bomb going off and a day being saved. Rock guitarist turned film music composer Fil Eisler has become the in-house guy for these Falcone projects, seemingly having fun at his work and showing promise with his music for the previous year's Superintelligence but mostly earning the bulk of his paychecks in the monotony of television series. In recent years, he expanded his horizons with a concerto for violin and orchestra.
