* NationalStereotypes: A major criticism of the film, especially in the UK, was that the American production team fatally misunderstood the symbols of British culture central to the series and instead based the characterizations heavily on American stereotypes of British people, depicting them as overly polite and obsessed with tea and the weather. The most notable example is the inclusion of an inexplicable tea dispenser on the dashboard of Steed's Bentley.

Do try your best to not confuse this with 2012's Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse mega cross-over hit, ''Film/TheAvengers2012''.

* DullSurprise: John Steed and Emma Peel spend the film reacting politely and bantering during dangerous situations instead of getting excited or freaked out by any of it.
