The Man from U.N.C.L.E. was pure, good entertainment. With decent character development, amazing actors, excellent cinematography, and an unforced set-up for future films, this movie really had it all.
A TV-to-Film remake, set in the early 1960s, shows CIA agent Napoleon Solo (Cavill) and KGB operative Illya Kuryakin (Hammer) participate in a joint mission against a mysterious criminal organization, which is working to proliferate nuclear weapons. Not being the biggest fan of Man of Steel, and having not seen Hammer in anything since The Social Network, I didn't know what to expect from the main actors in this movie; however, Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer put on one of the best duo performances I've seen in years, equally stealing the show. In a style of Bond meets The Odd Couple, this is a fun film for the fans of espionage movies. Sure to be the first of many and another win for Guy Ritchie.
Action, deceit, character development, and good storytelling make this a surprisingly fun film worth the watch. However, the nearly two hours of watching felt long towards the end, which is never a good thing. And, Alicia Vikander's character, while supplying the surprise ending, didn't impress me as much as I had hoped. Despite that, I truly think that this will become a franchise in its own right, much like Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes. I highly suggest seeing this movie in the theaters.
