THUNDERBALL (Theatrical Release USA 1967)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

Thunderball—
Sean Connery’s fourth James Bond movie—does not flag in its presentation of the James Bond character, but it does not work in the same class as Goldfinger and Die Another Day. There are slow spots in the storyline that are unusual to a James Bond story.
