This is an elaborate production, but all the jazzy sets and explosions in the world can't disguise the story's complete lack of urgency.
30
This new film version, sad to say, is a hollow shell of the original series.

ReelViews
This film is an absolute mess.

So how then do you duplicate a magic aura from 30 years ago? You don't.

Chicago Reader
The grasping novelty of the visuals doesn't rival the uncharismatic leads or the hopelessly, unironically banal plot.

L.A. Weekly
It's shockingly inert.
10
The film flails incoherently from set to set, trying to be kicky and madcap and pop, but with no sense of the show's casual acceptance of the absurd.
10
It's a film to gall fans of the old television series and perplex anyone else.

The A.V. Club
It's almost fascinating to witness just how lousy The Avengers really is.
0
It's a completely botched effort -- botched in its direction, its writing and editing.
