      Clever Reboot of a Vintage TV Show

      2015 will go down in history as the year of the reboot. We have been treated to several franchises from yesteryear that were cleverly updated or re-imagined: "Mad Max: Fury Road," "Jurassic World," "Creed," and, of course, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." One that might have slipped through the cracks happens to be one of the best: "The Man from UNCLE." This Guy Ritchie directed espionage thriller is less campy than you might expect, given Ritchie's pedigree and the 60s TV show that serves as the film's inspiration. It stars three very likable actors (Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, and Alicia Vikander) in a story that is strictly retro: Cold War spy stuff in East Germany, with the security of the world at stake, of course. But it doesn't play with the material tongue firmly planted in cheek; instead, it serves up its plot twists fairly straight but with a huge dollop of style. Ritchie knows how to film movie stars and cut action scenes to maximum effect, and his work here is impressive. If you're looking for diversion until the release of "Spectre" on home video, try "UNCLE." You could do worse.

      Quite the Ride.

      This movie is quite the ride with all the action. There's a fair amount of comedy in it too. I actually didn't know this movie was a remake until after I watched it. I haven't seen the original and therefore can't give a comparison review. This movie is not good for children or young teens. It's definitely a young adult up to senior aged viewer type of movie. Since Alicia Vikander, Armie Hammer, and Henry Cavill's careers took off; they've been showing up in a lot more movies. They really did well together in this movie. Some top acting performances in this movie by far. Having seasoned actor Hugh Grant in the movie was a plus as well. I like to think of this movie as James Bond meets Jason Bourne meets Austin Powers. This is due to the spy type story line, all the action, and light comedy. It's a must watch and must own movie.

      I'm relieved to say it's a bit of a mixed bag. On the one hand, it didn't quite deliver what we were hoping for...but on the other hand, it was still a good movie in an of itself. Sometimes the background music overwhelmed the talking. Set against the backdrop of the early 1960s period of the Cold War, the film centers on two secret agents. An American by the name of Napoleon Solo, and a Russian by the name of Illya Kuryakin. When a mysterious international criminal organization is bent on creating their own nuclear weapon, and thus, destabilizing the fragile balance of power between the nations, Solo and Kuryakin are forced to team up to stop them. With the help of the daughter of a vanished German scientist, it's up to the pair to put aside their differences and prevent a worldwide catastrophe.

      U.N.C.L.E. Says "Uncle!"

      I grew up watching The Man From U.N.C.L.E. tv series in the 60's. So, I expected a tongue-in-cheek thriller with the word "Affair" after the initial opening of the movie. Instead, the emphasis seemed to be on fashion rather than the main players, the plot, or even the music! Lots of people still remember the theme which is nowhere in this movie. I hope Guy will do a second U.N.C.L.E. movie giving the characters more latitude and less fashion scenes. The pace of the movie was good ala his Sherlock Holmes movies, but it needed more push. Superman and The Lone Ranger as Napoleon and Illiya were good if they only had better dialogue. I understand this movie was just a start, but I pray that the next movie will be more U.N.C.L.E. than a whimper!

      A fun spy movie set in the 60'S

      My wife and I went and saw this in the theater, not really knowing what to expect. The TV show was popular a little before our time, so we weren't really sure who the characters were or what the premise of the movie was, other than that it was a spy movie. I found it a little more lighthearted than a 007 film with some good elements of humor. I have to say this movie was well done. We enjoyed it immensely enough to own it on Blu Ray, and now we're trying to find an internet service where we can watch the re-runs of the TV show. Also, before seeing this I had not known who Alicia Vikander is, and after seeing this I must say she is a very talented up and coming actress. She was wonderful in this movie.

      Cold War Fun

      Directed by Guy Ritchie, this is exactly what I would expect. If you're a fan of the recent Sherlock Holmes movies then you know what to expect. The first thing that might be surprising is thst this is not a modern take on the original. The story is set in the 60s in the midst of the cold war. As one would expect, it's USSR vs. The U.S. starting out. The overall story is pretty typical and nothing new. The fun here is in the execution. Just as he did with Holmes, the journey is everything. Watching our main characters learning to work together and the banter between them makes what would be a text book cold war story one with watching.

      Entertaining film with Nostalgia

      This is a fun movie to watch. It's a Guy Ritchie film: so you know it's fast paced and likes to have fun with itself. It has nods to the TV series on which the characters are based: you have Napoleon Solo, Illya Kuriyakin and Mr. Waverly. From there you have all new characters who populate the tongue in cheek spoof on James Bond. Alicia Vikander is here to add glamour, and Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill do a nice job of playing the Russian spy vs American spy. I found this movie to be very funny in parts, and bears several viewings to catch all the details.

      Trying to cash in on a reputation

      I was looking for an "adventure" movie to watch on a plane trip and settled on this one. I had never heard anything about this movie - good or bad. I'm generally leery of movies or tv programs that use old show titles to hype their product, but I went with this anyway. Sorry I did. I found the movie to be confusing, lacking any logical progression, and as unreal as Captain America (which were entertaining movies and you know going in that they were fantasies). I enjoyed the original Man From UNCLE series when it was released years ago but this attempt at a prequel fell on its face.
