Fresh: The color is handsome. The scenery in the Bahamas is an irresistible lure. Even the violence is funny. That's the best I can say for a Bond film.

Rotten: Slightly bloated Bond, with too much technology for my taste and a climactic slaughter that's a little too mindless to be much fun.

A slickly performed and well-crafted action film. An energetic, thrilling and extremely fun movie. Connery`s Bond is slick, funny and never better or beat. It`s loaded with amazing scenery and beautiful locations as well as amazing under-water action sequences.

Here Connery returns for the fourth time as Bond, this time to battle S.P.E.C.T.R.E. and sharks. Thats right, this is the James Bond vs. Sharks movie(although he never actually battles a shark). Here Bond has to stop Emilio Largo aka Evil guy with an eye patch from detonating nuclear bombs in the ocean. The movie has the same charm as the previous three movies, it just doesn't quite meet up to their standards. The action is good, but the movie drags quite a bit. This is also the first Bond movie to go overboard on the gadgets. "Goldfinger" started it, but here they get crazier and crazier. Jet pack anyone? May be cheesey, but it's Bond darnit!Connery is still perfect as Bond, and he gets more tail in this movie than any mere mortal man can handle:-p Also, this has a fantastic theme song sung by Tom Jones. While not the best Bond movie, it certainly isn't the worst.

"Thunderball" may not be a crowd favourite, but I really got a kick out of the story in this film and how well the underwater action scenes presented themselves. The action is top-notch and I could easily re-watch this film for that reason alone. As always, the acting is fantastic by the entire cast, especially Sean Connery, and all the elements of a great Bond film are present. It is definitely not without it's overlong running time, but if you sit through the film and be patient, you will get was you deserve. This film has great direction and very solid effects for it's time. "Thunderball" is one of the better bond films I've seen.
