Get Smart – Review

WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

In this loveable spy spoof, the good guys of CONTROL – under The Chief (Arkin) – are involved in a perennial battle to save the world from the bad guys of KAOS – under Siegfried (Stamp) telegram downloaden android.
Maxwell Smart (Carell) is a number crunching intelligence analyst for CONTROL, desperate to switch to the more exciting part of the business – becoming a field agent download koch games for free. But even though he passes all the tests, the Chief can’t bear to lose him from the back-room.
But when the identities of some of CONTROL’s top agents are uncovered in a daring KAOS raid on their headquarters, the Chief has no choice but to send the unknown Smart out alongside Agent 99 (Hathaway), a spy so beautiful that it’s surprising that she can’t just kill her enemies by giving them a heart attack with a flutter of her eyelashes gimp kostenlos download deutsch vollversion.

WHAT’S IT LIKE?

Get Smart is based on a long-forgotten Mel Brooks TV spoof from the 60s and feels, in many ways, like it belongs back in the past with its forebear amazon prime filme herunterladen und später ansehen.
It’s a rather quaint and old-fashioned spy spoof, tipping its hat more at Bond than Bourne – rather like Naked Gun parodied the cop shows of the 70s and early 80s more than it did its contemporaries herunterladen.
The performances are suitably knowing and the action – while often predictable and pedestrian – nips along briskly and carries you with it.
It’s not taxing and nothing like as imaginative as it could – or should – be adobe photoshop mac.
Most of the humour, of course, comes from the mismatch of Carrell’s lumbering buffoon and Hathaway’s unworldly elegance – but this leads to one of the film’s thematic difficulties – is Smart incompetent or is he – as his name suggests – smart imusic for free? The personality and characteristics of the main character flip around wildly to best fit the scene in question, which – while it’s meant to be a comedy – doesn’t help the dramatic side of the film come across with any degree of believability xbox one x spiele schneller downloaden.
The humour is more silly than clever, which narrows down its target audience considerably.
It’s perhaps telling that rather than talk of a sequel, they’ve already shot a spin-off feature about two of CONTROL’s techno-geeks – played by Heroes’ Masi Oka and Studio 60’s Nate Torrence nv bescheinigung herunterladen.
