If Thunderball's gimmickry seems to overreach at times, Actor Connery gains assurance from film to film, by now delivers all his soppiest Jimcracks martini-dry.

Slightly bloated Bond, with too much technology for my taste and a climactic slaughter that's a little too mindless to be much fun.

There's visible evidence that the reported $5.5 million budget was no mere publicity figure; it's posh all the way.

The fourth Bond, marking the point at which spectacular hardware began to dominate the series. Sleek and quite fun all the same.

The color is handsome. The scenery in the Bahamas is an irresistible lure. Even the violence is funny. That's the best I can say for a Bond film.

Two Bond staples, gratuitous sex and violence, are captured in Thunderball's underwater-photography scenes, and they still look incredible 25 years later.

In this, the fourth instalment in the series from the original team, you have a classic Bond film that wants for nothing but a trim.

Classic 007 -- not the best picture in the long-running series, to be sure, but a more-than-worthwhile diversion for the action-loving escapist in us all.
