Get Smart : Good movie but not so great movie

Released on June 20, Get Smart has all the elements to make it a big summer entertainer; great star cast, funny story, action, romance, special effects and action. The recreation of the 1960s popular television sitcom is not a bad idea. One of Hollywood’s top comedy actor, Steve Carell played the character of an analyst dreaming to become a special agent very well. Anne Hathaway also played her part. However, there was still some thing missing. Despite all the efforts the movie did not do well at the box office. rcreader says:

There's something troubling, and maybe a little insidious, about the awfulness of the Get Smart film, because while watching it, it seems you can never quite pinpoint what it is you hate about it. (I succeeded when the jet pilot puked into his air-sickness bag, and then spilled the contents in front of us.) The actors certainly aren't bad: Steve Carell, Anne Hathaway, Dwayne Johnson, Alan Arkin, and others go through the motions amiably, if not interestingly, and even Bill Murray shows up for a cameo.

The story of Get Smart revolves around Maxwell Smart. He works as an analyst in an spy agency named CONTROL. Maxwell always wanted to be a field operative. Despite his high scores his boss does not allow him to become one because he believes that Maxwell can do more as an analyst. After CONTROl was attacked by an evil crime syndicate known as KAOS. Maxwell finally gets his chance to work as a field operative with “lovely-but-lethal” Agent 99. Together they fight evil.

Marvel Studio is planning to recreate Avengers on the big screen

One of the most anticipated movie of 2008, Iron Man, has been released and the result is known to all by this time. Iron Man is one of the most successful movies of 2008. However, the action is not going to end here. The man of Iron was followed by the great green fury Incredible Hulk. Though the movie did not make a big splash but at the last scene of the movie, Iron Man (Tony Stak/ Robert Downey Jr.) appears and says, “What if I told you we were putting together a team?” This means there will be more fighting and more action for marvel comic fans. However, they have been prepared for this for a long time. Earlier, Marvel Studios announced to develop a super-hero team. Each of the characters will first appear in solo movies and then they will be united in one big movie. Iron Man director Jon Favreau said that Marvel’s plan was to team up the heroes for The Avengers. Sun reports:

Favreau says the team’s lineup has changed throughout the years, “but the ones Marvel is talking about now are Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Ant-Man and Iron Man. I would love to see that.”

A scene following the closing credits of “Iron Man” introduced Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, who will be instrumental in bringing the heroes together.

Marvel Studio’s president of production, Kevin Feige confirmed that he was working toward developing movies where the heroes will come across each other and sometimes they will team up to fight powerful enemies. Kevin and Zak Penn are working together to unite all the members of the Avengers by 2011.
