|The thrills never let up as James Bond dives into this riveting adventure filled with explosive confrontations and amazing underwater action sequences! Sean Connery brings his characteristic style, humor and magnetism to Agent 007 as he travels to Nassau to track down villainous criminal Emilio Largo, who's threatening to plunge the world into a nuclear holocaust.|
"...represents the series in its zenith and provides excellent entertainment even after more than three decades. Dragan Antulov, Rec.Arts.Movies.Reviews
"...remarkably good fun. It's retro enough to be amusing in the dull bits and timeless enough to be fresh and vital today. James Rocchi, Netflix
"Certainly among the top five of all Bonds, and still socko. Steve Crum, Video-Reviewmaster.com
"Sometimes the most dated parts of an old film can be the most enjoyable; so it is with Bond's fifth movie, Thunderball. Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
Editor's NoteBased on Ian Fleming's 1961 novel, THUNDERBALL is 007 at his best. The fourth film in the Bond series finds the super spy (Sean Connery) battling a powerful organization named S.P.E.C.T.R.E. and its nefarious Number Two, Emilio Largo (Adolfo Celi), who has threatened to destroy Miami with an atomic weapon unless a huge ransom is paid. Of course, James Bond has something else in mind: a full-on infiltration of Largo's boat, the Disco Volante. With double the Bond girls (with Claudine Auger as the luscious Domino and Luciana Paluzzi as the villainous Fiona Volpe), this favored Bond outing features captivating underwater action sequences that hold up to this day. THUNDERBALL was nominated for a Best Special Effects Academy Award in 1965 and is not be confused with the "unofficial" 1983 James Bond film NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN, which also stars Connery and is based on the same novel.
