Get Smart – Movie Review

This one was funny. Steve Carell is a perfect Max, and the movie is very true to the original in a modern way… maybe too true at times, with a few too silly parts…

The cast is good…. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is fun as usual, Alan Arkin is playing great, Anne Hathaway was cool…. Dalip Singh was big enough for the role, but I feel a little awkward when I see him, looks like he can hardly walk… a little pathetic, a little felt sorry for him… and one scene Steve’s puking was a little too much… I find James Caan somewhat lame… but was great to see Masi Oka from Heroes.

Overall a real fun movie, made me laugh a lot, Steve Carell was true to the original character but still held it perfectly in his own way, not at all made you feel he’s trying to step into someone else’s shoes…

I highly recommend, you’ll have fun, you’ll laugh a lot, just don’t expect a deep message movie…
