Thunderball ★★★

"Some men just don’t like to be driven."
"No, some men don’t like to be taken for a ride."

Rewatch Review: One of my least favorites from the Connery era and surprisingly one of the films I don't return to as often as the others, 'Thunderball' is a bit bloated in its runtime and not as explosive or engaging in its action sequences, though the dominating beauty of the locales and the great spy work throughout makes up for it. Connery really hits his stride here and puts out another great performance, as he almost always does, and the film still oozes a ton of classic elements and fantastic characters, particularly from the females. I hope one day the film clicks for me as being as great as others seem to feel it is.
