A South American construction project is nearly under way, and the final testing of the newly invented Crablogger -- a powerful forest-clearing machine -- has proven successful. To celebrate the event, and to go over plans one more time, the project leader takes the Crablogger crew out to eat.
Had they noticed the deplorable conditions inside the kitchen, the men would surely have passed on dinner and gladly gone to work hungry the next morning. The foreman wisely orders the steak, but the Crablogger crew each chooses the house special. Apparently the only thing special about it is its ability to cause food poisoning.
One man gets violently ill before work the next morning, which makes him the lucky one. The other two seem fine and proceed with the project, but it isn't long before they succumb to their illnesses. They both pass out at the controls, leaving the massive machine to gobble everything in its path.
When it's determined that the Crablogger is headed straight for a new dam, International Rescue is called to the scene. They arrive in time to cut through the machine, but lack the knowledge to initiate the shutdown sequence.
Penelope is called in to contact the Crablogger's inventor. She unfortunately encounters nothing but trouble along the way, whether it be from a stubborn security guard or an accident victim she feels compelled to assist. Will she be able to get the code from the Crablogger's inventor, who is by now at home fast asleep?
She'd better, because the fuel in his creation is potent enough to blow 50 square miles sky-high, taking Brains and Virgil with it. Can International Rescue stop the deadly Crablogger in its tracks?

On his way home to celebrate his third wedding anniversary, Thomas Prescott is forced into an unexpected detour after picking up a hitchhiker. Upon dropping the man at what is supposedly the home of the hitchhiker's doctor, Prescott finds himself thanked with an explosive device clamped to his wrist and not much time to remove it before it detonates. The hitchhiker informs his confused victim that the key is hidden in his office and instructs him to leave the device in a file cabinet once it has been removed. Racing against both time and the police, Prescott does as he's told, but he's trapped in an elevator while fleeing the now-burning building. International Rescue has been monitoring the happenings and decides that now is the time to spring into action. But have they sat on the sidelines too long? Will they arrive in time to pull Prescott from the bottom of the elevator shaft in which he's trapped, or will the fire prove too much even for International Rescue's advanced equipment? Adding to their troubles, will they learn why both man and building were targeted in the first place before the criminals can strike again? After plunging to the bottom of the burning elevator shaft, the man, though injured, is eventually saved by International Rescue. When it's discovered that the explosion targeted government files on gang activity, the FBI is called in, and International Rescue removes itself from the case -- for now. When a British agent named Southern infiltrates the gang responsible for the blast, he and two other men are dispatched to a plutonium storage facility with a familiar calling card -- explosives attached to their wrists. Once inside the heavily fortified building, Southern turns on his companions in hopes of capturing the operation's ringleader, but is himself captured by one of the facility's robot guards and locked inside with the bombs. Can International Rescue save the agent and get to the explosives before half of England is destroyed? And will the gang again manage to escape, free to continue its destruction?moreless

In the year 2010, billionaire and former astronaut, Jeff Tracy, took his five sons to an uncharted, tropical island. There, they built the headquarters for International Rescue; an organization dedicated to helping those in need, whenever disaster struck. They've come to be known by the name they gave their incredible machines: Thunderbirds. (Taken from the theatrical trailer) However, at the age of 14, and the youngest Tracy, Alan always felt left out when his older brothers would go on their rescue missions... until a mysterious villain, named the Hood, fires a missile on Thunderbird 5 to lure the I.R. away from Tracy Island and trap them on the fractured space station. With them out of the way, the Hood could track down Tracy Island and use the marvelous Thunderbirds to commit robberies making him rich and International Rescue hated. With his family in danger (both their lives and reputation), Alan must team up with nature-fond daughter of Jeff's servant (Kyrano), Tin-Tin, and the brainy, stammering son of Jeff's genius engineer (Brains), Fermat, to rescue the Rescuers and stop the Hood's evil plan.moreless
