In Thunder Force (2021), two childhood best friends become crime fighting superheroes after one invents a formula that can give everyday people superpowers. Written and directed by Ben Falcone, the film stars Melissa McCarthy, Octavia Spencer, Jason Bateman, Pom Klementieff, Ben Falcone, Bobby Cannavale, Melissa Leo and Kevin Dunn. YouTuber Jeremy Jahns shares his thoughts on the superhero comedy now streaming on Netflix.
The problem is, it’s a superhero comedy which is actually a boring superhero movie that doesn’t really make you laugh. It’s pretty much Tammy with super powers. And it’s a problem I see a lot in these Melissa McCarthy movies … she’s the same character she just has a new job in every movie.
Not too impressed with the film, YouTuber Jeremy Jahns finds the film to be just like every other Melissa McCarthy film, claiming she pretty much plays the same type of characters and doesn’t always present anything new. The jokes just kept going and going and going, according to the YouTuber, who says funny jokes and ad libbing can only carry a film so far with good writing, a good plot and interesting characters.
I feel like someone was like hey just adlib and you know do your thing. We’ll fill it in later, just ad lib and make jokes which doesn’t always work for a movie.
Overall, there are a few chuckles here and there, but the entire premise of the film didn’t make too much sense and it just wasn’t doing much, according to Jahns.
