Thunderball (1965)

In THIS episode of Breaking Bond, we’ll be talking about 1965’s ThunderballStarring:Sean Connery as James BondClaudine Auger - DominoAdolfo Celi – Emilio LargoLuciana Paluzzi – Fiona VolpeDirected by Terence Young71% of the Earth is covered in ocean, but that doesn't mean that the same should be said of a film. And I don't know who came up with this idea, but speeding up the above-water action sequences doesn't make up for endless slow-paced molasses action --even if it involves harpoons. So throw on something comfortable. Like a pair of short shorts. Maybe get ready for a little bedroom blackmail. We're talking Thunderball this time, and we have feelings about it, y'all.

Brown, Jr.American CIA Agent James Bond survives an assassination attempt (by standing still), meets up with his British contact Clarence Leiter, and pretends to explain the rules of baccarat while Leiter explains Bond’s mission: defeat Le Chiffre at baccarat and force the Soviets to “retire” him. He has a run-in with his ex, Valerie Mathis (Le Chiffre’s current squeeze who still loves Bond—and vice versa), then beats Le Chiffre at baccarat with help from the Brits and Valerie Mathis – who Bond has been informed will die if he wins the game.Bond gets threatened with a cane gun (yep. A gun that looks like a cane), goes to his room, hides his massive check, and is confronted by Valerie—then Le Chiffre and his men. Turns out Val is with the French external military, but Le Chiffre tortures Bond to find out where he’s hidden the money and makes Valerie watch. After ambiguous torture, Bond wounds Le Chiffre, who tries to use Valerie as a shield, but she wriggles enough for Bond to shoot him dead.Breaking Bond #02 - Casino Royale - Climax! (1954)
