I read about this film in the newspaper and it said that if you liked Johnny English then you would love Get Smart. So I did see Johnny English and I liked it so I went to see this. Did the newspaper lie to me??
Well as you can see from the 5 stars that I have awarded it, Get Smart was no let down!! In fact it is one of the best films that I have seen all year. The film begins with Max (played by the very capable Steve Carell) as an employee of the secret agency, Control. Max desperately wants to be an agent and over his years working at control he has learned from the best and takes his test, he gets a perfect score but he has very little field experience so he isn't promoted, his fitness has also been an issue in the past but he got in shape to be an agent.
Max gets promoted when the identity of all of their agents is discovered by their enemy KAOS and the boss of control has no choice but to promote Max. He becomes partners with agent 99 (played by the lovely Anne Hathaway) who thinks that he is incapable of being an agent and takes an instant disliking to him.
So here they are on an aeroplane en-route to their destination. They really are complete opposites as agent 99 has loads of field experience but Max critics her for being a total field agent and vies versa, she critics him for being a total book worm and that it only takes an instant to be killed and she believes that Max doesn't realise that. There are some reel humorous moments in the film like when they break into a mansion to get to a party where one of the K.A.O.S members is. It really shows that Max is a reel James Bond wannabe.
The main plot of this film is that K.A.O.S has made nuclear weapons and give them to terrorists and are threatening to give them the launch codes unless Control meet their demands. Overall I really love this film and would definitely watch it again. Steve Carell and Anne Hathaway are simply superb and the story line is also really good, I won't spoil the rest, so as you can fully enjoy it like I did, Enjoy, and super film with some excellent humour!!!
+ Some sensational actors.
+ Decent story line.
+ Good ending.
+ It all just seems to work.
