three years since Austin Powers, that swinging international man

Evil and his accomplice Mini Me escape from a maximum-security
prison, Austin is called to action once more. Teaming up with
the mysterious Goldmember, Dr. Evil hatches a time-traveling
scheme to take over the world, one that involves the kidnapping
of Nigel Powers, Austin's beloved father and England's most
renowned spy. As he chases the villains through time, Austin
visits 1975 and joins forces with his old flame, Foxxy
Cleopatra, a streetwise and stylish detective. Together Austin
and Foxxy must find a way to save Nigel and stop Dr. Evil and
Goldmember from their mischievous mayhem.
Powers in Goldmember
appears in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1 on this single-sided,
dual-layered DVD; the image has been enhanced for 16X9
televisions. This was a solid presentation. Sharpness was
excellent. The film transfer remained sharp and detailed. I
detected no jagged edges or edge enhancement, I did however
notice a couple of signs of grain but over all, the image
remained spotless. Goldmember offered a colorful palette.
Colors were absolutely dazzling. Black levels appeared deep and
dense while shadow detail was thick but not overly intense.
is presented in both Dolby Digital EX 5.1 and DTS ES 6.1. As
usual, the DTS track provided a more superior bass response, but
both soundtracks were very similar. For the most part, audio
remained centered on its front channels. Effects came across
accurate and clear, with little prominence on the rear channels.
This was not a very active audio mix, but in itís own right the
soundtrack worked well for the film.

obviously will never get the same slap stick laughter we all
witnessed with the original Austin Powers, but for what itís
worth, Goldmember provides enough laughs to fill your
time. I found the cameoís sidesplitting and clever. The DVD
presents good quality picture and sound along with a nice roster
of extras. For those of you who are Austin Powersí fans,
Goldmember comes recommended. Itís a witty and brainless
film available in a splendid DVD package.
