The third is fantastic... funny, disgusting, clever and uplifting! Mini-Me and Fat B****** are back with even better gags and the usual crude humour from the latter!!! But Mike Myers has triumphed in adding the hilarious dutch roller skating villain "Goldmember!" And the casting of Michael Cane as Nigel Powers, Austins father... or farja if you're Goldmember... is excellent!
In her first acting role, Beyonce Knowles is brilliant and beautiful, with some great one liners and wild hair!
If you are a fan of Austin Powers... you will adore this film. If you didn't like the first two, you may not like this one as the humour carries the same vein and most of the original characters put in an appearance! If you haven't seen the first two... you may not get it!
Don't watch this film too seriously! Have a few drinks, a huge bucket of popcorn, loads of mates and just enjoy it! If you get the DVD... don't forget to check out the special features and extra scenes... extremely funny!
One question... when's Austin Powers 4 coming out?
Opening with an action-packed pre-credit James Bond like sequence, with cameos from many of Hollywood's biggest stars gets the movie off to a funny if somewhat irrelevant start, which is great if you like movies within movies, not so great if you don't. From there we get back into the real action with Dr Evil and Myer's latest character Goldmember (a Dutchman with a gold penis and bad skin, which he likes to eat) plotting once more to take over the world. So far so good you might think but herein one of the problems lies: the character Goldmember just isn't funny and is positively poor next to all of Mike Myers other characters, including a disappointingly under-used and very flatulent Fat Bastard who makes a welcome but all too brief return.Read more ›
Myers returns as the International man of mystery-Austin Powers, Dr. Evil as well as a host of new characters such as Goldmember. Myers' comedic performance pulls off all the stops to ensure that Goldmember would be a huge box office success. The introduction of inexperienced Pop-diva Beyonce Knowles was a suprise to some, as is her outstanding role as Foxxy Cleopatra.
Austin Powers in Goldmember could have either been a huge success or a huge failure, however with charismatic performances from the leading duo [Myers and Knowles] as well as from British-acting legend Michael Caine lending his experienced services, and a host of cameo appearances from Briteny Spears to Tom Cruise, make the third installment of Austin Powers hugely entertaining and a comical masterpiece.
Three years since Austin (Myers) prevented Dr Evil's (Myers) insidious scheming, the demented genius and his miniature clone Mini-Me (Verne Troyer, on top form) escape from their maximum-security prison to commit more evil atrocities in various decades, this time teaming up with diabolical Dutch criminal-mastermind Goldmember (Myers), who gained his name after a bizarre smelting accident turned his family jewels into solid gold.
But there is more at stake for Austin, as Goldmember has kidnapped his 'farsher' - father: he has a Dutch accent, isn't that weird? - Nigel Powers (played by the superbly cockney Caine), who Austin has his own issues with.
The Evil family return, with Seth Green (Scott), Mindy Sterling (Frau) and Robert Wagner (Number Two) providing a favourable audience for Dr Evil's new and typically OTT plans.
Joining Austin this time is Destiny's Child singer Knowles, whose blaxploitation babe Foxxy Cleopatra fills her part (and then some!) admirably well, as Powers must go back to 1975 to save the girl, his 'farsher' and the world once more - all in a days work for Her Majesty's top agent.
As you'd expect, the picture quality is wonderfully vibrant thanks to the swinging Seventies-inspired colours and set designs. Even more impressive for a release of this nature is the inclusion of the DTS 6.1 soundtrack, which features discrete 6.1 decoding for those with a centre-rear speaker.Read more ›
