Ranking the Bond films: Thunderball

Such a catchy plot — the terrorist organization SPECTRE holds atomic weapons for ransom — it’s been copied and spoofed for 40 years (see Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery). The underwater battle sequences don’t seem quite as spectacular as they once did (impressive enough back then to win a special-effects Oscar), but Bond in the Bahamas remains hard to beat and that flying jetpack is still one of 007’s suavest exits.
