The Avengers, the hip secret-agent series from 60's TV, is reinvented for the movies with a stylish blend of wit, fabulous retro fashions and effects-packed action. Ralph Fiennes is the very dapper John Steed and Uma Thurman is the smartly catsuited Emma Peel, two secret agents who fight crime with style. Sean Connery portrays Sir John De Wynter, an evil genius out to control the world with his high-tech weather machine. The madman poses quite a threat to mankind with his raging icestorms, scorching temperatures and mechanical buzz-bombing bees. But come cold heat or dreaded plight our two heroes never lose their cool. Tea anyone?
