Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002)
USA / English
"On July 26th the Secret Will Be Exposed "Upon learning that his father has been kidnapped, Austin Powers must travel to 1975 and defeat the aptly-named villain Goldmember - who is working with Dr. Evil.
The weakest entry to the Austin Power's series to me by far.
I liked the first two Austin Powers' movies quite a bit. Not so much
with this one, this one was okay as most of it we have seen before.
Granted, there was a humorous opening I did not expect and the closing
was the same, but the stuff in the middle was just same ol same ol. The
only two new facets in this entry are Michael Caine as Austin's dad
which is somewhat funny and Goldmember a new villain who is not funny
at all. Also, Austin has a new girl and Beyonce is the weakest of the
Austin girls by far. So the story, of course Dr. Evil has a plan
involving Goldmember, kidnapping Austin's dad and a new doomsday device
all doing most of the same jokes from part one and two. Sure some of it
is still a bit funny, but it is also old too. The story is not as
fluent either as it goes here and there making jokes at everything and
not seeming to be as well put together as the first two were. Then
there is the revelation at the end that makes little sense especially
considering the previous two movies. So just about everything in this
one is weaker than the previous two movies. Nothing really is better
here and for the most parts you are just revisiting jokes from the
previous installments as well. So in the end if this is the last one of
the series it goes off on a rather weak note, and I have not heard
anything about a sequel anytime in the future and how this one ended I
would not think it possible anyway so expect a good chuckle here and
there, but nothing new really worth seeing.
