In 2015 spy movie success to get the attention of movie lovers start from Kingsman, Spy and Spectre. The Man from Uncle also prove that spy movie is still fun to watch
This film is set during the Cold War between America and Russia. CIA agent named Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) must work together with Russian KGB agent named Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) to prevent the very dangerous bomb for the safety of mankind.
Seen from the director of this film, which is Guy Ritchie, the film certainly will not disappointed. In accordance with the typical Guy Ritchie, lot of flashback back sound that good and other unique features. For more details, you may be able to watch his other movies like Sherlock Holmes. This film is also very fashionable and several times mentioned the clothing brand. It may sound less important, but for me this is one of the good points of this film.
The story of the film is quite light and not too heavy. Typical spy movie, there is always sophisticated gadgets and incredible action. This film slipped humor and make this movie fun to watch. Cold relationship between the United States and Russia are described clearly in this movie and it looks very funny when the America and Russia agent several times call each other nicknames like `communism 'and` cowboy'.
Chemistry between Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer is good as Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill in 21 jump street but with more serious and elegant version. They both can act and work together well Henry Cavill succeed free from his role as Superman and became cool American Spy. Alicia Vikander who plays woman mechanic also steal the attention in this film. This Swedish actress is able to compete with Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer in the film.
The Man from UNCLE is an adaptation of the TV series with the same title. I think this film is one of the great spy movie and is very exciting. Possible rival of this film is Kingsman that aired in February 2015
PS: if you watch carefully, there is a cameo from David Beckham as a projectionist (SPOILER ALERT)
