No Bond like Sean Connery! Packs a lot of action!
Good movie and story. Has a lot of action. Never a better
James Bond than Sean Connery! Happy to have it on DVD so it will last. Plan to pass it on after I am gone , to my Grandsons!
Worth buying and watching !

Sean Connery lives the full life of a Secret Agent that protects the interest of England and her allies. Even when he is resting between assignments, he cross paths with suspicious activities which become clues to rescuing the inhabitants of all Europe.
The spice of life for James Bond is the women who are his friends or foes. But the thrill for the viewer is certainly the underwater battles replete with lots of air bubbles to recover the British Nuclear Bombs. The camera captures and shares every combat interactions that force the viewer to also gasp for air.
All ends well, and civilization is safe once again.

Great movie and great seller!
James Bond at his best. What else can I say? Claudine Auger is so sexy! The girl he starts dancing with at the Kit Kat Club is so cute! I wish she had a bigger role in the movie. I wish I had Sean's legs. He is truly the best James Bond ever!

Thunderball Ultimate Edition DVD
At the age of ten "Thuunderball" was the first James Bond movie I saw in a theatre, and it made a big impression on me. Over the years I have become fascinated with the effort that went into the underwater battle, from Lamar Boren's self-contained 70mm Panavision Camera, to the sharks set up by Ricou Browning and his team of divers. Since I saw this film way before you could buy a movie to take home in the form of VHS and later DVD, I must have seen it in the theatre at least 50 times, not including the times it was shown as a double feature with "You Only Live Twice". This is why the past versions for home viewing have been so disappointing, either from poor rendition of the water clarity, to the cut and paste mistakes in the soundtrack. The Ultimate Edition seems to have finally started from scratch and created the best version outside a movie theatre of this lavish production. I went straight to the underwater fight and was amazed to see actual definition in the grains of sand on the bottom (along with the dead frogmen) and visions of fights going on way off in the distant background. This was something that has not been seen in any previous versions (even the large laser disc was not this clear) and like a kid I must have tracked back about ten times just to watch the scene from beginning to end. My only complaint now is that the powers that be have also tinkered with the soundtrack and added many sounds that were not present in any version. The aquapara spearguns have a whole new sound, and the underwater sled (still an impresive creation from Jordan Klein) seems to have picked up a few extra gears for transporting atomic weapons. I guess the designers of this edition felt that there were too many sounds missing from the previous versions and decided to head back to the underwater foley room. Maybe this leaves room for the Final Ultimate Edition in HD or Blue Ray Disc to come out later this year. The newly exposed extra features were also delightful, especially Ken Adam's Home Movies of the location scouting that went on with all the production people and ends with a shot of he and his family on this fabulous sail boat reminding people that in life there is always hard work, but you still have to find the 'fun' things to do. The Boat Show Battle Reel was also surprising to see, since it contains an abreviated version of the underwater battle shot in reverse direction. All in all, this 2 disc edition was worth the price of purchase, since it provided a way to sample the 'new' versions of your favorite Bonds without having the buy the Box Set which seems to be comprised of two mediocre movies for every classic.Read full review
