Big screen spin-off of the cult 1960s television series. When weather control device the Prospero Shield fails, secret agent John Steed (Ralph Fiennes) is sent to investigate by his superior, Mother (Jim Broadbent). Steed at first suspects scientist Emma Peel (Uma Thurman), who has been filmed sabotaging the device, until he realizes that Mrs Peel has in fact been cloned by the man really responsible: evil industrialist Sir August De Winter (Sean Connery)!
A spy-spoof based on the television series of the 1960s which finds Steed called to the Ministry's secret agency to investigate the strange weather systems affecting the country.

Being a massive fan of The Avengers TV series, I managed to resist watching this film for 20 years. In the end, morbid curiosity took over - just how bad could it be?
The main problem here seems to be that the whole film is completely ill-judged. It's more like an unfunny pastiche - a hotchpotch of lukewarm random ideas from the 60s TV series, thrown into a melting pot with no real love or appreciation of what made the TV series so special.
Ralph Fiennes is miscast as a foppish & smarmy Steed, and never feels like a respected and likeable gentleman from 'the ministry'.
Uma Thurman fares slightly better, but there's never any real chemistry between them, and it just makes you long to see the original instead.
Why do they drink tea all the time? I don't remember that happening in the real Avengers!
Predictable views of tourist London only serve to add to the feeling that someone thinks this will all make it more 'English' & please a section of the American audience who maybe think England is still like how it was portrayed in 1950s movies.
Sean Connery does a good job as the villain bent on controlling the weather with his elaborate machine (nods to the episode 'A Surfeit of H2O' here), but the whole Bond-like epic climax falls flat, & goes down the drain faster than rain in a monsoon.
This whole ludicrous film feels contrived, unreal, charmless and cartoonish. The Avengers series never really played for laughs - it was serious, & the humour was very subtle.
This film’s only purpose seems to annoy & confound long-standing Avengers fans, and to bore & confuse contemporary cinema watchers who probably wondered what all the fuss was about...
