The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

Posted on August 15, 2015


The Man From U.N.C.L.E. – CIA Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill – Superman) and KGB Ilya Kuryaki (Armie Hammer – The Social Network twins) are paired up to locate a scientist who has the technology for the A-bomb. Each has his own special skill set which makes for an effective team. But they don’t like each other and constantly try to one up the other. Solo takes a semi for a swim. Ilya flies a motorcycle. Hugh Grant looks decidedly middle-age as boss man Alexander Waverly. Elizabeth Debicki is the wicked Victoria.

It is pure fun. Lots of action, lots of laughs. No bad language, no bad violence – one guy gets fried in an electric chair, but he totally deserved it. Cavill and Hammer are easy to look at. Gaby (Alicia Vikander) is pretty cute too – loved the scene where she does a little dance to soften up the tough Ilya – and she gets to wear these fab Jackie O-like clothes from the 60’s. Go see it. I cannot wait for the next one.
