Thunderball

1965 James Bond Movie Starring Sean Connery

Still my favorite Bond movie, it had the coolest Bond gadget of all, the personal rocket pack

I first watched this movie when I was young and was with a group of boys my age. We LOVED the opening scence where the naked women were swimming underwater with their breasts moving.

Watching the movie again I was struck by the quality of the dialog, at times Bond seems to be parodying himself. It is as if he doesn't take himself seriously, even when the danger is so grave and imminent. I consider this to be Connery's best performance as Bond.

Maybe it's waterlogged but it still remains awesome.
Following the mega success of Goldfinger in 64 had the world in Bond and Spy mania in 65.  How big was Thunderball?  Adjusted for inflation, Thunderball made anywhere between $515 to $800 million back in 65 in 21st century dollars.  Is the movie as good?  Eh.  It's not as good as Goldfinger but it's certainly not awful.      Bond is getting himself into shape at a health clinic while the evil S.P.E.T.R.E. organization's number 1 agent Emilio …

Bond heads to Nassau to track stolen nukes. A bit long maybe but the cool meter is pinned with plenty of great sets characters and gadgets.
