An "unofficial" James Bond film, starring Sean Connery and directed by Irvin Kershner (The Empire Strikes Back). It follows the events of Thunderball, with two nuclear warheads stolen by SPECTRE and used in a blackmail attempt against the nations of the world. Bond is sent to investigate the only lead, a sister of the pilot who performed the operation. The film was the result of an odd legal situation whereby Kevin McClory, who had co-written Thunderball with Ian Fleming, was allowed to retain the rights to that film's story and the characters who appeared in it. This included SPECTRE and Blofeld, who consequently were retired from the official Bond films.

It was in competition with the official Octopussy, which came out the same year.

This film uses the following tropes:

 Nigel Small-Fawcett: (yelling) Mr Bond! I say Mr. Bond! Nigel Small-Fawcett, British Embassy, Nassau."

James Bond: Nice to meet you Nigel.

Nigel Small-Fawcett: Sorry I'm late, but as you're one of these undercover jollies, I took the precaution of not being followed.

James Bond: And that's why you shouted my name across the harbor?

Nigel Small-Fawcett: Oh God, did I? Oh I'm sorry! Damn! Damn! Sorry I'm rather new to all this!

 Bond: "Not perfected yet"!

 You're quite a man, Mr. James Bond, but I am a superior woman. Guess where you get the first one?

 Small-Fawcett: M says that without you in the service, he fears for the security of the civilized world.

Bond: Never again.

Domino: Never?

(The soundtrack begins, "Never, never say never again, never, never say never again!" as Connery winks at the audience.)
