Product Description

Amazon.ca

Tout y est : le générique fignolé, la voiture extravagante, le style, le succès auprès des femmes… Il ne s’agit pourtant pas de James Bond, mais bien d’Austin Powers, l’espion britannique le plus psychédélique de l’univers. Cette troisième aventure écrite et interprétée par le très drôle Mike Myers, dans laquelle Austin affronte Goldmember, n’est cependant pas le meilleur volet de la série.

Échappé de prison, le Dr Evil s’associe au terrible Goldmember (L’Homme au membre d’or) pour, encore une fois, détruire la Terre. Lorsqu’ils enlèvent Nigel Powers (Michael Caine), espion de grande classe et père d’Austin, ce dernier décide de se débarrasser des malfaiteurs. Il remontera dans le temps et trouvera, en 1975, une partenaire de choix : la féline Foxxy Cleopatra (Beyoncé Knowles).

Bien qu’il soit devenu une vraie star, comblé par l’amour et l’argent, Austin Powers cherche toujours à susciter la fierté de son père, à l’instar d’Indiana Jones dans La Dernière Croisade. Afin d’impressionner son paternel, il tentera de forger une alliance avec un criminel pour en débusquer un autre, comme l’avait fait l’agent Starling dans Le Silence des agneaux. Et la liste s’allonge. Les références au cinéma, à la musique et à la publicité, ainsi que les apparitions de stars (Tom Cruise, Britney Spears, Steven Spielberg, etc.) pleuvent. Même si de très bons moments émergent (comme le générique déployé à la manière d’une comédie musicale) et que l’ensemble se laisse regarder assez facilement, on cherche en vain la substance propre de Goldmember. Car à force de clins d’œil et de pastiches, c’est Austin Powers lui-même qui finit par manquer de corps. --Helen Faradji

Special Features

Not surprisingly, deleted scenes and outtakes are the hands-down highlights of Goldmember's abundant Infinifilm features. Mike Myers's throwaway gags are funnier than Pauly Shore's entire career, revealing how a relaxed set encourages a flood of inspired improvisation. The Infinifilm feature is a handy, alternative method of seeing (and hearing) all of the bonus materials in logical sequence, mostly comprising behind-the-scenes featurettes devoted to costumes, special effects, all-star cameos, make-up, and various "social and historical" aspects of the Austin Powers franchise. The Myers/Jay Roach commentary track is worth a listening for Myers's casual jocularity (and his decent willingness to give credit to others), but their Hollywood compliments, while obviously sincere, eventually grow tiresome. More enjoyable are the pop-up subtitles in the DVD's "Fact Track" feature, adding lighthearted factoids to enhance an already very funny movie. Taken together, these features emphasize the productive camaraderie of the Austin Powers team and the devoted seriousness that the filmmakers bring to their pursuit of the next big laugh. --Jeff Shannon

3.0 out of 5 stars An average comedy. Feb. 26 2004
Format:DVD
I love the Austin Powers series, but I feel like this effort was my least favorite of the three thus far. If you were to watch the first movie, then the second, and then finally "goldmember," you will undoubtably see how the characters become so overblown by the third film, drastically different then how they were in the first film. Take for instance Dr. Evil, who in the first movie was almost serious, and anything comedic was often very subtle, not trying for the laughs, but getting them in a unique fashion. In "goldmember," however, evil is completely out of character and it gets almost ridiculous at times. Although these characters are all funny, they've all gone through their own "personal evolution."
"goldmember" is filled with many memorable moments which is why I still have respect for the series. The opening of the movie is probably one of the greatest openings for a comedy I have ever seen. I'm sure many can agree to that. The whole part with Mr. Roboto is witty and smart, poking fun at our use of subtitles. The movie also has another great scene behind a curtain, which mirrors another scene in the second movie, where it looks like heather graham is pulling grenades, rats, umbrellas, and other objects out from Austin's behind. However, the scene in "goldmember" involves Austin and Mini Me in a hospital room during a rountine physical. I also have respect for Mike Myers himself, who plays the parts of 4 characters in Austin, Dr. evil, fat bastard, and goldmember. So all in all, an allright comedy. It has its moments, but it also has those moments that just go too far and are completely off base with what the first movie in the series was trying to illustrate. I've heard that a fourth picture is most likely in the works, which I hope they can turn around the series with a final movie that Austin Powers fans truly deserve.

3.0 out of 5 stars A step down from the previous films Feb. 11 2004
Format:DVD
INTRODUCTION:
The first two Austin Powers films were comedy masterpieces, so it's no surprise that the film makers wanted to do a third film. A third film is usually the film that will either prove to be one of the franchise's strongest, or it will be the one that ultimately ruins a series. Which category does the latest Austin Powers film, Goldmember, fall into? Read on and find out.
BASIC PLOT:
Thanks to a spy the British Ministry of Defense put in Dr. Evil's hideout, he is sent to prison. However, Austin is reluctantly forced to transfer him to a minimum security prison in exchange for information on his missing father's whereabouts. Austin takes a time machine back to the seventies where he rescues his father and teams up with a female secret agent, and then sets out to stop Dr. Evil's latest plan from being realized.
FILM OPINIONS:
After the first two films, this one was a huge disappointment. The basic plot is essentially the same as that of the last film. Also, Austin's girl from the last film is absent here, and her absence is never explained. This film does have some pretty funny scenes, in particular the subtitles and shadows scenes, but ultimately the film ends up falling flat in comparison to its earlier counterparts.
DVD:
Although the movie is subpar, the DVD is actually very good. There are a ton of deleted scenes, a commentary track, a behind-the-scenes featurette, and several other little bonuses. The bonus material isn't quite up to that of the previous film's DVD release, but it is still very good.
OVERALL:
This movie was disappointing to me, but it still has its moments. If you saw the last two films in the series and you want to see what happens next, you might as well see this film - just don't be expecting anything too special.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Moose Hole - Golden Laughs Jan. 28 2004
Format:DVD
The third and possibly last installment of the Austin Powers series pits England's favorite international man of mystery against his old nemesis Dr. Evil and his brand new partner Goldmember. The original Austin Powers grossed only $53 million but the movie became a cult favorite on video. New Line, the studio that produced the original, opted for a sequel. Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, released in 1999, grossed $205 million by the end of its run. With that success, New Line was more then willing to pay Mike Myers $25 million to come up with another sequel to the hit comedy series. Will the third installment continue the tradition of being better then the last or will it follow the path of most sequels this year and be a piece of trash?
The story goes that Austin Powers, International Man of Mystery, has finally captured his archenemy, Dr. Evil. But while Dr. Evil is in jail, Nigel Powers, Austin's father, is kidnapped by Goldmember. Goldmember is an evil Dutch scientist from the 1970's who has a huge obsession with gold. The obsession is so big that he even had his privates turned into gold after an unfortunate smelting accident. When Dr. Evil escapes and plans the destruction of the world, Austin must team up with old flame Foxxy Cleopatra and save the world and his father. The story for Austin Powers in Goldmember is well paced but much less so then Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. The film has tons of great moments within the course of the film but in between those moments the story slows greatly and for extended periods of time. It also gets a little confusing in the end with the involvement of Austin's family, which will not be revealed in this review, but it seems to work out. Some fans of the comedy series may be disappointed though by the revelations.

Uneven and forced humor. The 'plot' was choppy and jokes not creative- same old stuff. Really liked the 2nd and 1st, but this one stunk.
