4.0 out of 5 stars "Yeah Baby, Yeah!", 18 May 2010
This review is from: Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I guess it was inevitable - having the funniest spy on blu-ray was just going to happen, and this, the second instalment written and starring Mike Myers (Shrek just to name a movie) sees Austin having to rescue the world from Dr Evil once again.

How will he do it, he's not got his mojo? That could be a problem for Austin, but he's got a new foxy assistant - Felicity Shagwell (Heather Graham) on his side, and the duo are prepared to go to hell and back to defeat Dr Evil, and his baby clone.

This is good fun for 90 mins, not to be taken too seriously. Mike's obviously brilliant in this but he's not as good as he was in Wayne's World, which for me was his best role ever. Heather's good as the sultry Ms Shagwell, but really this film has little substance otherwise. It's all a bit of harmless fun, to be enjoyed when you're feeling a bit down and need a pick me up.

This blu-ray is pretty good for what it is, the picture is crisp and the sound has both DDS and TrueHD. Sadly, there are no dubs (a blessing really). There are a lot of deleted scenes and 3 featurettes about the movie, and 3 music videos from Madonna (Beautiful Stranger), Lenny Kravitz (American Woman) and Dr Evil and Mini Me (Just The Two Of Us), which is entertaining.

Altogether this is a good disk, the film is pleasant enough, but really I would recommend renting this - as I can't see myself watching this many more times. I have not seen this movie since around 2000 so I haven't had the feeling I should come back to it sooner.

Have a look.
