  1. A smorgasbord of bad ideas, sumptuously over-realized.

    What's missing is chemistry: the right blend of seriousness and whimsy, and charmingly compelling interplay between leads Ralph Fiennes and Uma Thurman.
  3. 30
    This big-budget bore looks lovely but is so miscalculated that you can't help but wonder whether anyone involved had ever seen the original.
  4. So how then do you duplicate a magic aura from 30 years ago? You don't.
  5. 10
    The film flails incoherently from set to set, trying to be kicky and madcap and pop, but with no sense of the show's casual acceptance of the absurd.
  6. It's a film to gall fans of the old television series and perplex anyone else.
  7. 0
    It's almost fascinating to witness just how lousy The Avengers really is.

    Not to be confused with Josh Whedon’s more recent Marvel Movie the Avengers is a re-imagining of the classic English TV show that featured the effortlessly cool Patrick Macnee alongside his numerous sidekicks, that most famously included the stunning Diana Rigg.

    From the outset one has to wonder whether anyone involved with this film even bothered to watch the original 60’s version as it completely lacks the kind of wit and eccentricity that made it such a cult classic. I think its time Hollywood started to leave these types of things well alone.
