The Man from Uncle is as much of a bromance as a spy action movie! I give it an A-. Based on the 1960’s TV show of the same name, This Man from Uncle provides us the background of how the two unlikely allies find themselves working together.
UNCLE feels like an early James Bond movie with an extra secret agent. In fact, the original TV show had Ian Fleming’s blessing. He gave Napoleon Solo, his name which was based off a character from Goldfinger.
While the focus is on saving the world from nuclear weapons, Cavill and Hammer entertain, whether trying to one-up each other or wise-cracking with a straight face. The clothes and the cars provide the perfect backdrop for the nostalgic trip back in time to the 1960’s. The only downfall of the movie is the soundtrack…not enough 1960’s music to enjoy. If you’re giving us all the rest of the 1960’s…we’d love some music too!
Fans of witty high-brow comedy and exciting spy action will enjoy The Man From Uncle, no matter their age.
Also…not after credits scene but keep eyes peeled for some fun…David Beckham has a cameo!
It's all about the movies...
