Maxwell Smart is one of the best analysts the super-secret agency CONTROL has ever had but he’s longing for something different. After years of trying he’s finally managed to pass the exam to become a field agent and he’s looking forward to his first assignment. Unfortunately, he’s so good at analysing that his superiors decide to keep him on his current post. When one day Maxwell arrives at the office to find it completely trashed, it’s clear that the forces of KAOS have raided the place. All undercover agents have been exposed and all current operations against KAOS are at risk. Even worse, rumours are flying around that KAOS is about to make a major strike against the US so imminent action is necessary. Luckily, nobody at KAOS knows Maxwell so he finally gets his shot! Together with Agent 99 who recently had undergone plastic surgery he’s sent to Russia where they have to find out what KAOS is up to.
Sound and Vision:
We didn’t spot any blatant compression errors and also the level of detail is pretty much ok. Nothing special to be said about the image quality as such so we can conclude it’s what we can expect from a recent release.
Also the sound does exactly what it’s supposed to with good use of the surround speakers and subwoofer, making it a good supporting track for the action.
– There’s two ways to watch the movie, the second being with alternative scenes and bloopers included
– The Old “I did it in the movie” trick
– The Right Agent for the Right Job
– Max in Moscow
– Language Lessons
– The Vomit Reel
– Spy Confidential
– Get Smart’s Bruce and Lloyd out of control
To be honest the extra’s are quite standard and those that aren’t don’t really add much. People that love watching bloopers and silly stuff may like them though.
Get Smart is a parody on spy movies and more particularly the old James Bond flicks. As such it does a decent job although the first half can only entertain with the storyline and less with great jokes. Halfway through we do get some good ones that brought a smile on our face or even managed to make us laugh out loud but overall those looking for slapstick comedy may want to look elsewhere.
Get Smart is funny but not in a way that will have you falling out of your chair. The movie is craftly made and contains a decent storyline while the cast does a good job but don’t expect something like Dumb&Dumber goes James Bond or you’ll be disappointed
