So what if I told you Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer were set to play a crime-fighting superhero duo? Well get ready because that’s exactly what we’re getting in the upcoming action comedy “Thunder Force”. Streaming giant Netflix has dropped the first trailer and I have to say it looks a lot like what you might expect – silly, over the top, and more than a little cringe-worthy.
“Thunder Force” is written and directed by Ben Falcone, husband to McCarthy and the person behind many of her movies. I hate to say it, but that’s not a good sign. I do like Octavia Spencer and I don’t know what drew her to this role. But who knows, maybe it’s just a goofy carefree romp worthy of a giggle or two. On the other hand, it could just as easily be Adam Sandler kind of bad. We will know pretty soon.
“Thunder Force” premieres April 9th on Netflix. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
