This is a very underrated film and my favorite Connery Bond film.

Good, but can get boring at times.
Yes, there's a load of editing problems, a lacklustre final act and a couple scenes that are laughable but I still like Thunderball. It's an intriguing spy thriller and it's the only time where I believed that SPECTRE was a secret, serious organisation It just screams BOND to me, it has what I love about the franchise (the women, the gadgets, great sets and locations etc.). Ive heard complaints about seeing SPECTRE's plan before Bond finds it out but, to me, it adds more of a threat and it's more believable that Bond is on the back foot. And hell I even like the underwater sequences (minus the final fight). An underrated Bond film that I will always defend!
I really like Tom Jones theme, but Johnny Cash's alt is the one I enjoy more. Of course, it wasn't fitting though. Sounded like a western theme.
