I really enjoyed watching The Man from U.N.C.L.E. It was well directed, the laughs were well done, and the acting was convincing. There was never a dull moment from this film.
I loved it. I guess because maybe I can relate to the old TV series which I really enjoyed. The acting was great and the whole plot of the movie and the European scenery were amazing. It kept you guessing all the time (in a good way) not knowing what was going to happen next.
The movie had a stylish take on the 60’s international espionage arena with interesting story lines. It was fun, chic, action-packed, with good suspense. It was an enjoyable movie.
In addition to solid talent in Henry Cavill (Man of Steel), Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger), Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina), Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby) and Hugh Grant (About a Boy), a most obvious star in this feature is director Guy Ritchie (Snatch, Sherlock Holmes) whose firm feel for quality action drama is establishing him as the go-to for quality, entertaining action-based storytelling. Ritchie excels noticeably in shaping the melodramatic moments these films like to create. Gorgeous photography depicting a scenic, vintage Europe from John Mathieson who is obliged to add filters for a period /vintage feel, dynamic camera work/montages matched with music from Daniel Pemberton all enhance and help express trademark Guy Ritchie storytelling. I believe that U.N.C.L.E. will sit between MI and Bond in the spy-actions for the year. I liked it better as an overall film than MI, though Rogue Nation had more action and twists. U.N.C.L.E. also doesn’t shy away from being campy, a feature taken from the old tv show the film is based on, I assume, I wouldn’t know. I predict it will do well with audiences and serve to reward Guy Ritchie’s career as he’s making quite an entertaining statement with this one.
I thoroughly enjoyed this film. It had wit, suspense and flair to it… I think the actors had great chemistry and made it work really well. I’d love to see a sequel.
