Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Connery hits cruise control with Thunderball, a lesser Bond film especially considering it followed Goldfinger – probably the most iconic Bond films of all. That’s not to say it’s terrible – the under water finale alone is worth the price of admission – but outside of that it’s pretty slow and uneventful with an unmemorable plot, forgettable villain and even a pretty average set of gadgets. It’s also the first Bond film that feels longer than its run time. So not Bond at his best and the start of the end for Connery.
Best Bit: The underwater finale
