Thunder Force

Thunder Force ★½

Writer/ director Ben Falcone is the luckiest man on Earth: he’s married to uber-talented Melissa McCarthy, and can get funding for nearly every silly mess he puts on screen by virtue of his talented wife (or so I presume). 
Thunder Force is the latest in an exasperatingly long line of Falcone-McCarthy projects that toes the line between an awesomely bad B-movie, and slapstick, without succeeding at either. 
There’s talent on screen and ideas on the table that hint at potential, but Thunder Force is bad in every way imaginable. There are continuity issues, unconvincing acting from great actors (who are clearly phoning it), cringe-worthy dialogue and poorly staged action sequences. 
Melissa McCarthy deserves better.
