  3. Louise_Dietrich's rating of the film Thunderball

    how can a James Bond film be so bland when it had Tom Jones sing its theme song?

  4. film_lies101's rating of the film Thunderball

    First James Bond experience, I was underwhelmed to say the least. Why is a 90 minute picture at best, stretched to over two hours

  5. Ethan's rating of the film Thunderball

    Bond underwater and one of the more exciting entries for Sean Connery as the gentleman spy.

  6. James Mackin's rating of the film Thunderball

    My personal favourite Connery Bond film. He has a jetpack.

  7. Summer Buck's rating of the film Thunderball

  8. suede's rating of the film Thunderball

    5/10. Features a breathtaking, largely wordless atomic bomb heist in the first act ("Switch on the underwater landing lights!"), plus a few awe-inspiring sets such as SPECTRE's conference room in Paris, or the UK government's operations HQ in London. Unfortunately, a very lame middle act ensues. The final act returns with major submarine and marine action—but only at the price of major idiocy!

  9. Michael Harbour's rating of the film Thunderball

    At its best when submerged. The underwater stuff is great. When it surfaces, things get a bit ... silly.

  10. msmichel's rating of the film Thunderball

    One of the all time best Bonds. Exciting, suspenceful with some great set pieces. Claudine Auger as Domino, Luciana Paluzzi a great femme fatale and the beautiful Martine Beswick in a small part. Usual series strengths from composer Barry, designer Ken Adam and director Young. Prefer "Russia" and "Goldfinger" but still so much better than the non-Connery Bond films.

  11. Adam Slusar's rating of the film Thunderball

    Thunderball has its fair share of iconic moments, and a fine performance by Sean Connery, but what could have been an exciting climax is betrayed by overlong underwater sequences and not nearly enough suspense.

  12. Dzimas's rating of the film Thunderball

    Surprised to see such a low average rating. This to me is the quintessential James Bond.

  13. John Smith's rating of the film Thunderball

    A good bond film to say the least.

  14. Spencer Draper's rating of the film Thunderball

    the island charm infects this film and gives it a quality unlike any other Bond. Filled with so many unforgettable sights, exotic locales, a great villain, a driving plot, Young at the helm, Hunt editing, and one of John Barry's finest scores. This is what a Bond film used to be.

  15. Nancarrow's rating of the film Thunderball

    despite the troubled production, this is a stellar outing for mr jb. solidified the template for the series. i highly encourage any large format screenings as the scale of this is on par with the other grand jb outing's: YOLT, TSWLM & SF. claudine auger absolutely sizzles as domino; best group of women amongst the franchise. +JOHN BARRY. odd fact: during the final battle, the shark getting shot was unscripted

  16. Johnny DuBiel's rating of the film Thunderball

    This was a monster BO smash, and in many ways its easy to see why. Connery's most physical turn as 007, some of the most beautiful Bond girls, one of the better storylines in all Bond movies, and plenty of top notch action scenes should equal this being the best of the series; however, the pacing is completely off, primarily because the filmmakers fell too in love with underwater shooting.

  17. Pierluigi Puccini's rating of the film Thunderball

    Bondmania was at it's peak. Bond takes the fight with spectre to the paradise of bahamas. and beats them with the help of charm and a few under-water gadgets
