Thunderball (1965)

3 Stars (out of 4)

Largo at Large

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Terence Young directed for the final time on the Bond series, with this adaptation of Ian Fleming's 1961 novel. In Thunderball (1965), Bond (Connery) goes to the Bahamas, trues to prevent the malevolent Largo (Adolfo Celi) from taking over the world with some nuclear warheads, and steals Largo's girlfriend, Domino (Claudine Auger); This movie is much bigger and longer than its predecessors, and includes a lengthy underwater sequence that, frankly, drags a bit. Nonetheless, this was the most popular Bond movie of its day, and remains among the highest-grossing of the series. It won an Oscar for Best Visual Effects. Tom Jones sings the title song. It was remade, more or less, as Never Say Never Again (1983).
