A remake of THUNDERBALL that was made possible by some kind of contractual loopholes involving Ian Fleming's estate. Very dated now, but Klaus Maria Brandauer and Barbara Carrera have a great time; they're a lot of fun to watch. Otherwise there's not a lot going on here.
Sean Connery said he would never do Bond again but he did in this American reboot and remake of "Thunderball". He is the best thing with the film too as is the memorable Bond girls - Kim Basinger and Barbara Carrera and the villains too. It is a better film than some of the official ones but Rowan Atkinson is hugely embarrassing in a cameo role and the film has too many diving sequences to my liking.
Purest Bond - a man who always has a Martini at five, smokes in abundance, smuggles a hamper to Shrublands full of the finest food, has "too much red meat and white bread", drives a Bentley, rides a motorbike, engages in casual sex at every opportunity , competent at a wide variety of skills , beats the villain at his own game and leaves the service with M fearing for the safety of the entire world.
