The Man from U.N.C.L.E.- 100 Word Review

Ritchie’s remake of the Cold War television show is a highly entertaining, action-packed romp.

A CIA Agent, a KGB Agent and a nuclear scientist’s daughter, Gaby, unite to combat an international terrorist organisation led by the wicked Victoria.

Like Sherlock Holmes, Ritchie directs the action with fast, energetic pace. The art design captures the style of the 60s, complemented by Pemberton’s funky soundtrack.

Cavill and Hammer work off each other effortlessly, both oozing charm and bravado. Vikander’s sassy Gaby and Debicki’s sultry villainess are excellent additions to the world of espionage.

An exciting spy thriller, almost better than James Bond.

    2015 was a hell of a year for spy flicks. I preferred this to the Bond offering, even! Great review.
