Man from U.N.C.L.E., The (12A)

Man from U.N.C.L.E., The (12A)

Action, Adventure, Comedy

In the early 1960s, CIA agent Napoleon Solo and KGB operative Illya Kuryakin participate in a joint mission against a mysterious criminal organization, which is working to proliferate nuclear weapons.

The critical consensus

Stylish but poorly scripted spy caper starring Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer.

***(*)(*)Karen Krizanovich, The List, 11/08/2015

The high-octane thrill of Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock films has been replaced by boring, hot guys suavely saving the world in this remake of the 60s TV show.

**(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 11/08/2015

Cavill and Hammer are made for each other, but the film can’t always find the pyrotechnics to match their chemistry.

***(*)(*)Helen O'Hara, Empire Online, 10/08/2015

Verdict: All style, no substance.

**(*)(*)(*)Toby Young, Daily Mail, 14/08/2015

When it takes a breather from the OTT action, Ritchie's period caper revels in double (and triple) crosses, Cold War intrigue and vintage kicks. Fun, but not quite the old-school Bond it wants to be.

***(*)(*)Josh Winning, Total Film, 11/08/2015

Lightweight but stylish in a high-kitsch fashion.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 14/08/2015

The vibe is strong with this one. The rest... not so much.
