Tout y est : le générique fignolé, la voiture extravagante, le style, le succès auprès des femmes… Il ne sagit pourtant pas de James Bond, mais bien dAustin Powers, lespion britannique le plus psychédélique de lunivers. Cette troisième aventure écrite et interprétée par le très drôle Mike Myers, dans laquelle Austin affronte Goldmember, nest cependant pas le meilleur volet de la série.
Échappé de prison, le Dr Evil sassocie au terrible Goldmember (LHomme au membre dor) pour, encore une fois, détruire la Terre. Lorsquils enlèvent Nigel Powers (Michael Caine), espion de grande classe et père dAustin, 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 quil soit devenu une vraie star, comblé par lamour et largent, Austin Powers cherche toujours à susciter la fierté de son père, à linstar dIndiana Jones dans La Dernière Croisade. Afin dimpressionner son paternel, il tentera de forger une alliance avec un criminel pour en débusquer un autre, comme lavait fait lagent Starling dans Le Silence des agneaux. Et la liste sallonge. 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 dune comédie musicale) et que lensemble se laisse regarder assez facilement, on cherche en vain la substance propre de Goldmember. Car à force de clins dœil et de pastiches, cest Austin Powers lui-même qui finit par manquer de corps. --Helen Faradji
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 --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

"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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.Read more ›
