(74) For some, Goldfinger was an unwelcome departure into campiness for Bond. Thunderball, then, is undoubtedly not their favorite film. Featuring a jet-pack and gadgets galore, it is most assuredly action rather than espionage. Though reasonably enjoyable, Thunderball anticipates the future problems of the Moore films. Its endless puns and corny SPECTRE sequences can become quite excessive. Still, with four films shot in the same number of years, sags in quality are to be expected.
