* DaChief: Bizarrely, M plays a strange British variation of this trope. Fortunately, the film acknowledges this M is explicitly not the same character as Bernard Lee's.

* BroadStrokes: Rather loosely follows the plot of ''{{Film/Thunderball}}'', with an update to the 80's and a motorbike for Bond to ride.

Added DiffLines:

* ProductPlacement: ''Atari'', of all things. A particularly ironic case of this at that, considering that this film was released in the year ''[[UsefulNotes/TheGreatVideoGameCrashOf1983 1983]]''.

An "unofficial" Film/JamesBond film released in 1983, starring Creator/SeanConnery and directed by Irvin Kershner (director of ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack''). It's a remake of ''Film/{{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, Domino Petachi (Creator/KimBasinger in her StarMakingRole), sister of the pilot who performed the operation. The filmmakers intentionally decided to have Connery play an aging James Bond -- though notably, Connery is actually ''younger'' than Creator/RogerMoore, who was still the current 007 in the official films at the time.

This movie was the result of an odd legal situation whereby Kevin [=McClory=], who had co-written the novel ''Literature/{{Thunderball}}'' with Creator/IanFleming, 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 also forced Creator/ElectronicArts to rename SPECTRE when they adapted ''Film/FromRussiaWithLove'' as [[VideoGame/DoubleOhSevenFromRussiaWithLove a video game]]).
