Maxwell Smart (Steve Carell) is on a mission to thwart the latest plot for world domination by the evil crime syndicate known as KAOS. When the headquarters of U.S. spy agency Control is attacked and the identities of its agents compromised, the Chief (Alan Arkin) has no choice but to promote his ever-eager analyst Maxwell Smart, who has always dreamt of working in the field alongside stalwart superstar Agent 23 (Dwayne Johnson). Smart is partnered instead with the lovely-but-lethal veteran Agent 99 (Anne Hathaway). Given little field experience and even less time, Smart-armed with nothing but a few spy-tech gadgets and his unbridled enthusiasm-must thwart the doomsday plans of KAOS head Siegfried (Terence Stamp). - © Warner Bros.
I never saw the original TV series Get Smart. Thus, I cannot complained about the difference of those two. However, some said that the director seems to be torn between following to the original story and making it as it own. The result is an awkward straddling of the two.
- Anne Hathaway is beautiful than ever (and very sexy)
- The scene at the dance hall is awesome!
- Steve Carell has not disappointing me yet
It was like watching Inspector Gadget+Inspector Clouseau (from Pink Panther)+James Bond get together. Very funny with adequate action moves made the movie quite enjoyable. We laugh,
