In the midst of the dark and gritty movies that have characterized the 2000s, it’s nice to see Superman and the Lone Ranger team up for a 1960s spy throwback.
Napolean Solo (Henry Cavill) is a suave, carefree thief turned spy, tasked with extracting Gaby Teller (Alicia Vikander) from East Berlin for the CIA. During the escape, Solo and Teller evade KGB agent Illya Kuryakin and report back to Solo’s superiors, only to find out that the KGB and CIA have reluctantly teamed up. Solo and Kuryakin are forced to work together to stop a wealthy couple from using Teller’s father to build their own nuclear weapon.
“The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” brings nothing new to the table in terms of its structure. Two good guys with conflicting personalities are forced to work together to take …

After Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation took everyone's breath away, I've no doubt that people expected The Man From U.N.C.L.E. to bow its head and disappear as though it never existed. Its less-than-expected box office receipts and mildly positive reviews suggest as much.
That is a shame because The Man From U.N.C.L.E is quite a charming and laid-back spy movie that is about as joyful about just being a spy movie as Spectre was trying to insist that it was much more than that. What U.N.C.L.E. gets that sadly James Bond seems to have forgotten is how much enjoyment can be derived from the glamour and intrigue of high stakes espionage fiction.
It certainly doesn't try to reinvent the wheel or anything but the mood is light, the action is exciting, the cast is having fun, and the …

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (2015) PG-13 Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) and Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) team up with the help of a beautiful woman (Alicia Vikander) to stop a mysterious international criminal organization led by Victoria Vinciguerrra (Elizabeth Debicki). This is a Guy Ritchie film, and it looks it. It’s very stylish (in a good way) with lots of creative action sequences and witty dialog. There are also some great running gags, including Solo and Kuryakin having such a fashion war that they could be contestants on Project Runway. I liked Alicia Vikander in the role of the German mechanic who can hold her own with the boys, though I wish she had done more action scenes. Both Cavill and Hammer play their roles with perfection. I especially liked Hammer’s tough, Russian …

So this movie is basically about Superman and The Longer Ranger teaming up to save the world from evil doers, but in 60's style... should be interesting at least.
The Man From U.N.C.L.E is set around the early 60's, as CIA operation and a KGB agent join forces to take down a mysterious organization seeking to profit on nuclear proliferation.
So I just seen The Man From U.N.C.L.E and it was okay. Now Guy Ritchie may be a mix bag for most people and he kind of is sometimes, but I got to admit that Ritchie really injects a feel of energy and style into his movies that really makes them quite enjoyable to watch. And once again Guy Ritchie doesn't disappoint when it comes to action scenes and it's sense of style, but the one thing that Guy Ritchie doesn't do well on is it's story and …

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is epitome of style and thrilling actions. This movie is not fast paced- it super paced that keeps you at the edge of your seat from the first scene. Top it up with a lot of humor and a bit of suspense and you get this outstanding movie from Guy Ritchie.
The Man from U.N.C.L.E. never loses its plot, from scene one, till the end. An extremely well-written screenplay and outstanding direction makes this a masterpiece. Guy Ritchie has already shown his capabilities in previous movies that he has directed and he does it again, and this time, with a lot of style and humor.
The stunts are outstanding, there isn’t much fighting and killing but the chases are done with style. The 1960’s setup does not limit the …

'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' is a surprisingly restrained, yet stylish, old-school spy flick from Guy Ritchie. The director's penchant for fast-talking heavy accented criminals and slo-motion visuals is less apparent here. However, his witty character interactions and vibrant cinematography are still very much intact. Great attention to detail helps harken back to the spy films and television shows of the 60's. It's an accurately nostalgic presentation. The plot and characters feel very reminiscent of that era, as well. Focus is maintained on the dynamic between the three main players. Cavill, Hammer, and Vikander's scenes together are fun. Their forced cooperation and eventual team building is justified through each individual being a reliable asset. They also have many sharp …
