Bond and Domino.

This movie had a lot of cool underwater scenes, including a full underwater battle. My favorite underwater scene, however, was when Largo (the villain) traps Bond and a henchman underwater and set the sharks loose.

While not as memorable as Goldfinger (1964), this movie was still solid and fun to watch.

James Bond.

Instant Comments:
Title song sung by Tom Jones.
For someone who wants more money for impersonating this man, he already displayed two errors according to the woman. I feel like the likelihood of him dying would be high for her to make such an agreement.

Domino, Largo, and Bond.

Ha! The side of the missile has a some printing that says "Handle like eggs."
"Sort of licensed travel shooter."
There appears to be 9 Double O agents.
Lol. Will that map ever serve another purpose?
Codename: Thunderball.

Bullet proof.

"I couldn't miss, she has two moles... on her left thigh."
Ha! "What sharp little eyes you got." "Wait 'til you get to my teeth."
Ha. It turns out they do use this big map, but it seems inefficient to use such a big map.
[Nodded off to sleep around 5 o'clock. I woke when the one girl says, "And I have your little friend."]
[I resumed the movie at the 1 hour mark, when he's under the ship.]

SPECTRE headquarters.

"Perhaps you'd call one for me." "Of course. Pull!" "Seems terribly difficult. No, it isn't, is it?"
Ha! "Since you're here do you mind giving me something to put on." [He hands her some slippers]
HAHAHA! "Mind if my friend sits this one out? She's just dead."
"I think he got the point." Oh the endless death puns.

Domino and Bond.

Huh. What was he taking pictures of?
That must be so fun to drive at around 110 miles per hour.
Just when I was about to say, "I would just go for the oxygen supply," Bond comes in and cuts off the supply of two of the baddies.

Removing the goggles seems like the next best thing.
Also, the movie makes it seem like a numbers game. So really the agency should have just sent more men.
Oh wow. That's an awesome exit.
The credits do NOT mention You Only Live Twice (1967).

Cool ending.
