During the swinging 60s Britain's top secret agent, Austin
Powers, is cryogenically frozen. Over 30 years later he is
thawed in order to thwart Dr Evil - who has also been frozen
for 30 years. Now Powers must save the world from the diabolical
fate Dr Evil has mapped out for it...
spy movies are pretty long in the tooth by now but this movie
takes a new twist on the formula. Myers is brilliantly funny
as both Austin Powers and Dr Evil. Liz Hurley is wonderful
as Myers 'Power girl'. She is funny, sexy and elegant all
at the same time.
DVD presentation comes with a number of useful extras. This
includes two alternative endings (which, thankfully were cut
from the final movie) and commentary by Mike Myers and director
Jay Roach. There is also a collection of deleted scenes which
are worth viewing.
Bond fans this is a must watch movie - it borrows so much
from the early bond films - which will leave you with a warm
glow inside. If you have a sense of humour you'll love it.
