Based on the 60's TV show of the same name, "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." is charming fun time at the movies this august that promises to wash the bad taste out of everyones mouth that saw "Fantastic Four". Starring Henry Cavill as American Agent Napoleon and Armie Hammer as his Russian counterpart Illya Kuryakin, the two must work together on a mission to stop an international criminal organization from gaining nuclear weapons...if they don't kill each other first.
PROS: The Acting in the movie is top notch. Everyone in the film gives an amazing performance. Henry Cavill on screen character is as charming and slick as Cavill perfect hair. Only second to Armie Hammer hot headed, badass Russian character. Cavill and Hammer have great chemistry together and the back and forth dialogue and situations between the two is fun to watch and very enjoyable. Alicia Vikander sexy female lead is holds her own in the film for the most part and Elizabeth Debicki character also brings a few surprises of her own to the film that just adds to the 60's old school vibe Guy Richie brings to the film.
ACTION: While not as high octane as other spy films such as Mission: Impossible or James Bond, U.N.C.L.E. does brings its own brand of old school action to the big screen. Stylistic and well shoot, the action while appearing in moderation is very enjoyable and doesn't go over the top.
CONS: Without Nitpicking, the only true cons to the film worth noting are the film is rubbing against the 2 hour marker. While not a bad thing, the movie does have a few slow moments in some scene that may make viewers fade in and out of the film. Also, the film is not a super action heavy flick like other spy movies and focuses more on the characters and advancing the over all narrative, and the ending may feel about 10 or 15 minutes too long.
OVERALL: "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." can be best summed up as a witty good old school spy movie with great chemistry between the two lead male cast. The Acting was very good (for an august movie) from everyone, the action was well shoot stylistically, the plot was easy to follow and well executed. Over all a good time at the movies. I personally rated the movie "Worth Seeing at Full Admission" Check out "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." in theaters August 14th.
