Thunderball ★★★½

Hate to say it but… kinda mid. 

I think it’s trying to be a lot of different things at once, and unfortunately they just don’t all work out. The plot feels a bit disjointed and Bond feels a bit lethargic. There’s less wit and almost of all of its goofiness seems to be unintentional (killing a guy by pushing him into a pool filled with what appear to be like, toddler sized sharks.)  On the plus side though, the setting was gorgeous (I want everything in James’s suite in Nassau,) Claudine Auger was stunning, I always love Q’s little gadgets, and the climax kinda rocked. It’s not a bad movie by any means, just not my favorite.
