The fourth James Bond film, Thunderball is the fourth in the series and the fourth for Sean Connery as well in the role of James Bond. Just as in the first two MGM wonderfully restores this film in the highest quality and best audio technology available.

In this film James Bond must again battle wits and brawn with the evil SPECTRE organization when in a plot to again destroy the world and kill millions of innocent people. This time they hijack a NATO plane carrying two neuclear weapons. With the evil Emilio Largo at the switch holding the world hostage Bond must thwart SCEPTRE in their attempt to destroy the world. While racing against the clock to take down SCEPTRE Bond meets and falls for the beautiful and dangerous Domino. The climactic battle against SCEPTRE on the ocean floor is fantastic, for it’s time.

Once again, while the technology this film is viewed on is the most modern the film itself is not. Made in 1965 with limited special effects used are clearly not the most believable but Sean Connery saves the film from too much cheesery. The Bonus Features on the disc are the same as had previously been released on the DVD version of the film so not much new there. However these new HD Bond films are a must have for the fans of the franchise.

Film: 7.0

Audio: 8.5

Video: 8.5

Bonus Material: 6.5

Overall: 7.8
