1960s-set spy comedy starring Mike Myers as secret agent Austin Powers who is on the verge of catching his arch nemesis Dr Evil (also Myers) when the latter has himself cryogenically frozen. Powers follows suit, only to be revived thirty years later when Evil has emerged to threaten the world once more. Teamed with Vanessa Kensington (Elizabeth Hurley), the daughter of his original partner, Powers has to get over his culture shock in time to stop his old foe's plans for world domination.
If you don't think Austin Powers is one of the funniest movies of the 1990s, maybe you should be packed into a cryogenic time chamber and sent back to the decade whence you came. Perhaps it was the 1960s--the shagadelic decade when London hipster Austin Powers scored with gorgeous chicks as a fashion photographer by day, crime-fighting international man of mystery by night. Yeah, baby, yeah! But when Powers' arch nemesis, Dr. Evil, puts himself into a deep-freeze and travels via time machine to the late 1990s, Powers must follow him and foil Evil's nefarious scheme of global domination. Mike Myers plays dual roles as Powers and Dr. Evil, with Elizabeth Hurley as his present-day sidekick and karate-kicking paramour. A hilarious spoof of 60s spy movies, this colourful comedy actually gets funnier with successive viewings, making it a perfect home video for gloomy days and randy nights.

Why could they not get the extras from the 10th Anniversary editon on there?
Does explain why both sequals were out before the first film. As they are hoping people like myself will buy this one regardless to complete the trilogy.
Looks like Dr Evil may have had his revenge after all....
I also especially remember when Elizabeth Hurley (all men say wow) when she came out with the silver outfit on as I think as I got a few other men probably got from their Girl Friends the jab in the ribs for maybe ignoring them whilst looking & thinking why can't I trade her in for Elizabeth Hurley.
Good movie you have to own it.
This is not the best of transfers, obviously not remastered as the film weave on the titles at the beginning is pretty awful. That said the picture quality itself isn't too bad, and the sound is very good.
One problem though is that there are no subtitles on this film, something you sometimes find on lower budget discs but why this one?
I also bemoan the lack of extras, looks like they're waiting for the 20th anniversary but by then it'll be a 4K release!
Austin is then released, and thawed back into action to once again battle Dr. Evil where he wakes up somewhere in Nevada and steals a nuclear weapon to hold the world to ransom.
After Austin is woken up to stop Dr. Evil he gets a new sidekick Vanessa Kensington, his ex-partner's daughter.
They go to Vegas to stop Dr. Evil's plot to control the world for 100 billion dollars.....
It's clear that Myers has a love for England and the sixties, as this has so much intense referencing and in jokes, it commands you to watch it several times just to get all the jokes, and this is why it works so well.
The plot is second fiddle to characters, its a perfunctory maguffin that showed up in most spy films of the sixties, Myers concentrates on the characters most of all, and they are fantastic.
The titular character is a little tired thought to watch now, but its nothing to do with the film, its just pop culture has wrung the comedy out of Powers so much, you do cringe whenever he says one of his catchphrases.
Dr Evil though is still timeless, because he is just so straight faced and the clumsiest character you'd ever likely to meet.
It's pretty left field stuff, from surprising cameos, to in my opinion the funniest thing of the film, showing the personal life of a henchmen, brilliant and totally unexpected.
Watch this and then watch Danger! Diabolik, the film it homages the most.
Good stuff, but referenced within an inch of its life, which tarnishes it a little.
