Thunderball
Blofeld and his gang pinch a couple of nuclear bombs and threaten the world with doom unless they get $100,000,000. Bond has to do lots of underwater swimming and messing around with Felix Leiter, but manages to save the day in the end. Phew!
OK, I suppose, not so much action as in some of them, but has the good bit at the beginning where he has to go to a health farm.
Score: 7

Diamonds Are Forever
Bond goes under cover as a diamond smuggler, taking diamonds hidden in golf balls to American gangsters. Tiffany Case helps him out, and they end up defeating the bad guys
Bit of a dull Bond, this one. Read it in Queenstown NZ, at Nick and Allie's house.
Score: 6.5
