    Synopsis


    Get Smart
    40-Year-Old Virgin star Steve Carell steps into the telephonic shoes of television's most beloved bumbling detective in this big-screen adaptation of the hit 1960s-era comedy series created by Mel Brooks. The evil geniuses at KAOS have hatched a diabolical plot to dominate every living man, woman, and child on the planet, and their plot gets under way as they attack the headquarters of the U.S. spy agency Control. As a result of the attack, the identity of every agent working for Control has been compromised. Realizing that the only way to thwart KAOS' evil plan is to promote eager but inexperienced Control analyst Maxwell Smart (Carell) to the rank of special agent, the Chief (Alan Arkin) reluctantly teams Smart with Agent 99 (Anne Hathaway) -- a veteran super-spy whose beauty is only surpassed by her lethality. With no real field experience to speak of and nothing but sheer enthusiasm and a handful of fancy spy gadgets to help him accomplish his deadly mission, Maxwell Smart his new partner, Agent 99, will be forced to faces malevolent KAOS head Siegfried (Terence Stamp) and his loyal army of minions in a decisive fight that will determine the fate of the free world. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, David Koechner, Terry Crews, and Ken Davitian co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      really great, not what I expected at all

      Before I watched this film, I read the reviews of the press and most of them weren't great. I am unfortunately one of those guys who will put himself off watching it because of those bad reviews. I'm gutted I did as this film was simply the personification of brilliance from start to finish. It's slick, stylish and downright comic excellence. Even for a film like this, the special effect and general action would put even James Bond to shame. It's exciting, quite emotional at times, cool at others and just downright silly at the times that are left. Steve Carell plays Maxwell Smart, a secret agent who desperately wants to get on the field. The government agency he works for known only as CONTROL are infiltrated by an evil agency known as KAOS which compromises the identities of all the current field agents. So in order to battle this force and still stay a secret, the chief of CONTROL puts smart on the field and assigns him the title of agent 86 partnering him with the much more experienced Agent 99 (Anne Hathaway). Max looks up to his close friend and one of the best agents on the field, Agent 23 (Dwayne Johnson). He is the James Bond of CONTROL and it's no surprise that Max wants to be so much like him. This is just a really light hearted and fast paced film. I guess it could just be labelled a comedy, but that would just ignore the other great aspects of the film. The action is done really well and isn't the tacky type comedy we have come to associate comedy movies when they feature action. Some of the sequences are genuinely unique and truly edge of your seat. The chemistry between Hathaway and Carell is great and one scene in particular expresses the comedic chemistry between the two. The laser room scene which is somewhat of a cliché for spy movies is superb in this. Carell is the usual silly guy we have come to know and love, his ridiculous expressions and perfected comic timing are all present. It's also very pleasant to see the wonderful Anne Hathaway in a leading role where she isn't the damzel in distress, or the naive teenager. The Bill Murray cameo is also something quite special as agent 13, he's only there for a moment and has about three lines but it's always great to see Bill Murray on our screens. It also seems quite a wrestler fest as well, obviously with the inclusion of Dwayne Johnson as agent 23 but also WWEs The Great Khali as the cliché middle eastern, giant bad guy. Johnson doesn't take his character too seriously, which is something he always manages to shine in playing but manages to pull out the acting stops when he has to enter into the action man role. An awesome movie all round and is definitely worth it just for the sky diving scene and the laser room.

      A fun comedy that's surprisingly strong on action

      Get Smart is a really fun movie. It certainly feels like a summer movie event, and the production values go in accordance to that. The actors and the overall goofy tone may the film a really fun action-adventure-comedy. The story is that of Maxwell Smart (Steve Carrell), an inetlligence analyst for CONTROL, a government agency that opposes the evil forces represented by KAOS, led by the villainous Siegfried (Terence Stamp). When the list of CONTROL agents is compromised, and only the unbeatable Agent 99 (Anne Hathaway) remains. She is partnered unwillingly with Max, who has always wanted to be an agent, and together they have to stop KAOS ans make the Chief (Alan Arkin) proud. It's definitely a goofy film, and the comedy is never overlooked. Max definitely bumbles his way through some situations, but surprisingly he knows what he's doing quite a lot of the time, which was refreshing. Also, the humor and the action both work, which made the whole experience wuite a bit of fun. Overall, though I can't compare it to the popular series, which I unfortunately never saw, this is an enjoyable film which I recommend to both lovers of comedy and action.

      surprising very good and charismatic if you know what I mean for once we get to see Dwayne Johnson aka the rock in a bad guy role which is part one of several that makes this movie worth seeing. I remember the original series if you knew the series this is no comparison the story is more focused on say a 2008 then the 1960's setting in ways this is disappointing in having anything to do with the original series but for a good movie night experience you wont be disappointed. Great cast too Alan Arkin's performance is note worthy.

      As you would expect, the 40yr old virgin makes this a very interesting movie. If you like comedy movies that do not take things too seriously this is a great movie to watch. These "smart" agents are not so smart after all but it's up to them to catch the bad guys. There is one part where there on top of a building, the person that their chasing grabs a rope and swings himself thru the window of another building, so the 2 agents try doing the same but instead of entering thru the same window they hit the building wall (very funny!) and as they hang on for dear life Will Farrell says, "whatever you do don't look down!" But the woman still does and then lets go of the rope, turns out they were just 2-3ft above the sidewalk..lol

      A funny movie...

      I was a fan of the TV show and naturally went to see this in theaters. It is a genuinely funny film. The video is great, but the audio leaves something to be desired. There have been great dolby digital tracks that have out performed some TrueHD tracks. Unfortunately, this isn't one of them. So the audio is nothing to get excited over. This Blu-ray set has tons of special features. In fact, it is a 3 disc set. One disc is devoted exclusively to Digital Copy, and the other to a rather elaborate Blu-ray-exclusive DVD game. All of the special features are in standard definition, which is a shame. All in all, fans of the movie will like this one.

      I think that "Get Smart" was one of the greatest action films of all-time and it was also one of my favorite action films of all-time. Anne Hathaway was really amazing in this film. I have seen and enjoyed this film several times and I also think that "Get Smart" had a lot of entertaining, exciting and enjoyable action, humor, mystery and suspense including an exciting and original storyline.

      Great Comedy for Everyone

      We went and saw this in theaters, and both my girlfriend and I had a great time. This movie had some great acting to move it along, and although the plot wasn't all that special and somewhat predictable, it didn't ruin the movie in the least bit. Most of this was due to the humor that Carrell provides the entire movie. It worked well with the other characters he surrounded himself with since he was the bumbling idiot while everyone else were the top in the field. The action was alright, nothing special, but its a comedy and not an action film in the least. Definately a movie everyone can enjoy.

      from the start to finish just like a episode of the tv series. getting all the gags doors, telephone booth, cos, shoe phone "one of the 1st cell phones", agents, and catch pharses..missed it by this much. I was superied by all of the big actors and comedians in the the movie doing cameo appearance.. i almost missed Bill Murray as Agent 13 . and the war room .. they did a good modern day version of the tv show into a movie. steve carell excellent in the roll of maxwell smart he played it great well worth the price and a very re watchable movie
