Summary

At the height of the Cold War, CIA agent Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) and KGB operative Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) are made to participate in a joint mission against a mysterious criminal organization.

Is The Plot Interesting?

There were moments in The Man From U.N.C.L.E. I found really funny but to me the movie was too long. It carried on when it really could have ended half an hour before the actual ending.

Is The Acting Good?

I thought Armie Hammer’s accent was really good and added to some of the more comedic moments. Armie Hammer also worked well with Henry Cavill and Alicia Vikander. The three of them together was just brilliant.

Is The Directing Good?

Guy Ritchie is great at directing these types of movies. His directing style in The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is very clear and straightforward in my opinion. It works perfectly for this movie.

Is The Cinematography Good?

The editing and cinematography were quite good, the transitions in particular were interesting and inventive. They went well with the movie’s tone and style, adding a lot to the movie.

Is It Worth Watching?

I do think The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is worth renting but I don’t think I’ll be buying the DVD any time soon. I did definitely have fun watching this movie and I’m sure you will too.

3/5

[about having to get mugged] A Russian architect would have fought them, a Russian agent would have killed them!
