American spy working with a Russian spy is definitely an interesting plot. Enough action, enough humor, enough drama. Watchable!

I'm not sure why this didn't do better. For once, both Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer manage more than one-dimensional characters and you can't go wrong adding Alicia Vikander to the mix. It was fun, it had great action pieces, humor, a bit of sex appeal and overall was a decent spy action comedy. I highly doubt this will get a sequel, which is too bad, as the potential is great and in a world of gritty Bourne and Bond this throwback to a more easy-going time was a fine change of pace.

Brings back characteristics of old spy movies

Evan Wheatley - wrote on 10/21/2016

In the midst of the dark and gritty movies that have characterized the 2000s, itís 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 Soloís 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 Tellerís father to build their own nuclear weapon.

Remember when spy movies were allowed to be fun?

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

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. Itís 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 Hammerís tough, Russian …
