UK DVD Z1 15873 does not feature Eddie Izzard opening his knife in his final fight - footage cut but present in other versions. The shot of the knife being opened is replaced by a reaction shot of Emma that is not featured in versions that have the knife opening. As a result the different versions do not have a different running time as the action goes back perfectly in sync after this moment. See more »
In London, the agent of the Ministry John Steed (Ralph Fiennes) and Dr. Emma Peel (Uma Thurman) are summoned by the Mother (Jim Broadbent), who shows a footage where the Prospero Project that controls the weather is damaged by Dr. Peel. They head to meet Sir August de Wynter (Sean Connery), who is a weather specialist, but soon they discover that he wants to rule the world, using his machine that controls the weather.
I saw "The Avengers" in the 90's and did not like this movie. Today I have just seen it again on DVD and I found again a silly and boring movie that wastes cast and budget. It is hard to believe that Sean Connery accepted to work in this turkey. My vote is three.
Title (Brazil): "Os Vingadores" ("The Avengers")
