  • Best bond yet!

    By Bond nerd
    For those who waste their money on Roger moore bonds, try Sean conary, thunder ball is my favorite bond film, nooks, evil villins, jet packs, and guns, it's a breath of fresh air!
  • Boring

    By Danny 007 spells bond
    B-O-R-I-N-G.This was a HUGE step down from gold finger the only thing this movie got going for is the villain and the spectacular yet underwhelming underwater fight sequences
  • Good film

    By The sens army
    Lots of underwater shots great sound and lots of good action scenes
  • Great!

    By Paul the Chemist
    Another fantastic Bond movie. I remember seeing this as a kid and cringing when I saw the spear go through the scuba-henchman's arm. I love the plane landing in the water scene.
  • Much better overall look and feel

    By Ocediis
    This Bond film looks as if it received better funding. The special effects are much better than in any previous Bond film. And the fight scenes are better produced and more realistic (very evident in the first fight scene of the movie). The overall production values are high, story is fascinating and kept my attention throughout, and the female lead is gorgeous. If I have one gripe, it is that the ending comes up abruptly. Other than that, this rates up there with my favorite Bond films.
  • One of the weaker 007 movies

    By Paul McCartney is Awesome
    I dunno. It just seems 'off'. Sean Connery was obviously preparing to resign from the role. And he seems bored. Also, the villain never gets to that expected scariness! Just not one of the better Bonds.
  • Sign of the Times

    By Drumgol
    280 million is all they wanted? Why not fix the Powerball for an instant agro, pure profit.
  • The third-best Bond movie (with Sean Connery)

    By 747whaledriver
    Only slightly dated with the use of a British Vulcan bomber, this is perhaps the third best Bond movie with Sean Connery (right behind GOLDFINGER and FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE). Well acted, with classic screens and resulting lines.
  • ThunderBall 007

    By Owen12345N
    This is Connery's Most wettest Bond and Best. Connery is back in the fourth installment and trust me you will be pleased!
  • Thunderball

    By Juancarlos Villaverde
    The best bond out there in his four movie. Which has an Excellent theme song.
