* HamAndCheese: SeanConnery Creator/SeanConnery as Sir August de Wynter.



** Ralph Fiennes fighting a former James Bond is especially amusing with the hindsight that in ''{{Film/Skyfall}}'' he [[spoiler: becomes the new M]].
** Uma Thurman's costume on the poster looks rather similar to another [[ComicBook/BlackWidow female]] in a movie titled ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}''.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: The Ministry has an Invisible Man, and yet they simply hide him away in the filing room, instead of using him as an infiltration officer. For added WTF-ery, the Invisible Man is voiced by Patrick Macnee, the original John Steed.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: The film has Creator/SeanConnery and Patrick Macnee, portrayers of famous spies on the [[Film/JamesBond silver]] and [[Series/TheAvengers small]] screen respectively, and yet the two never share the screen together.

* [=Narm=]: ''Loads'' of it. Particularly the overly polite manner in which Emma and Steed face their adversaries, the intended gender confusion among the agency codenames, de Wynter and his minions wearing ''bear suits'', just to name a few.

* FridgeBrilliance: Yes, the bear suits are silly as hell. But then again, they've done a great job at distracting you from whatever de Wynter's conference was about, didn't they?

* CompleteMonster: [[EvilOldFolks Sir August De Wynter]] is the BigBad and an [[CorruptCorporateExecutive immoral businessman]] using the funds of [[NebulousEvilOrganisation Wonderland Weather]] for his own exploits. De Wynter is the [[DiabolicalMastermind head of]] the [[EvilPlan Prospero Project]], and discusses the matter with some of the world's top scientists. As a test of loyalty, De Wynter [[ManipulativeBastard tricks two of the scientists working with him]] into signing off, [[BadBoss knifing them to death]] immediately after. He also murders the scientists who helped him build his DoomsdayDevice [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness after they serve their purpose]]. Opposing the Ministry, De Wynter clones Emma Peel and has her [[EvilTwin clone]] wreak havoc, murdering agents to frame the real Peel. Previous experiments De Wynter was involved in invoived {{animal testing}}, resulting in [[BodyHorror horrifying mutations]] on those they were performed on. [[DirtyOldMan De Wynter]] also briefly erases the memory of, and [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil tries to rape]], the much-younger Peel. After the Ministry reveals him as the head of the Prospero Project, De Wynter gloats to the world's leaders that if the planet's weather isn't bought from him, he'll use his WeatherControlMachine to [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt ravage the world and kill millions, if not billions]], in a [[CruelAndUnusualDeath variety of horrific ways]], such as London [[KillItWithIce freezing to death]]. A [[{{Lust}} depraved]], selfish, [[Franchise/JamesBond Bond-esque]] {{mad scientist}}, De Wynter was a fitting archetype of the demented, shallow villains appearing in SpyFiction, and would happily [[OmnicidalManiac destroy the world]] just to [[ItsAllAboutMe satisfy]] his own {{ambition|IsEvil}} and {{greed}}.
