Thunderball ★★★

I really love the evil board room meeting here. I like the on-going Spectre storyline in the original films. The plastic surgery stuff is also pretty cool here too. There’s just something about this that doesn’t work for me. Maybe the adventure isn’t as exciting or the jokes don’t work as well. the major problem is that we know the villains’s plans too early on for there to be any surprises. Bond is more of an asshole here than usual. The underwater sequences go on for too long and aren’t too engaging, though they are visually spectacular. It is worth watching since there is a solid amount of great stuff in here, it just isn’t as cohesive as I’d want it to be.
