Jeremiah Chechick directed this $60 million adaptation of the whimsical 1961 British TV spy series, imported to the United States five years later for ABC airing (beginning 3/28/66), followed by The New Avengers (CBS, 1978-79). In the feature-length version, secret agent John Steed (Ralph Fiennes) and Emma Peel (Uma Thurman) face a meteorological menace as they track sinister super-villain Sir August de Wynter (Sean Connery), threatening to blitz Britain with blizzards and other extreme weather. Vocal cameo by Patrick Macnee (the original TV Steed). ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

One of the worst movies I have ever seen. I don't know if it was the director or writers who butchered this movie, but the bad dialogue was amazingly poorly delivered by a cast that generally is at least B+, if not in the A range.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME.
At the beginning of the move a man dodges a falling flower pot. This is the most exciting part of the movie. I cannot say just how bad this movie is. If there is one tiny silver lining, the stars costumes are neat. Sean Connery in is full Scottish regalia, Uma is in tight tight pants, and Ralph is so damn cut you want to pinch his widdle cheeks. Save it for "crappy movie night"
horrible, a waste of time, and an insult to the acting skills of those in movie. they blew $60 million on the filming of this when we could have all gotten more satisfaction with that money being used to feed the hungry
