The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015)
Critic Consensus: The Man from U.N.C.L.E. tries to distract from an unremarkable story with charismatic stars and fizzy set pieces, adding up to an uneven action thriller with just enough style to overcome its lack of substance.

Critic Reviews for The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
The main problem with The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is its tone. We can't take this stuff seriously, yet Ritchie misses all sorts of opportunities to make the movie fun. The result isn't particularly satisfying as either adventure or comedy.
Guy Ritchie's The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is a massive disappointment that flat-out ignores the television show on which is was supposed to be based, replacing the fun and camp of the original with a generic and lazily-written actioner.
It's partly second-rate Bond and partly second-rate Mission Impossible: something to fill the time during the long months before the fall movie season.
The Man from U.N.C.L.E has some flaws, a dash of predictability and some questionable plot turns; but everyone involved brims with how much they're having.
Adopting a deliciously groovy vibe, Guy Ritchie turns the iconic 1960s TV spy series into a flashy action-comedy.
Audience Reviews for The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
A jaunty joy ride that seeps with Guy Ritchie ooze, it's stylish through and through, even when the narrative doesn't hold up.
Guy Ritchie tries to emulate nineteen-sixties eye-popping aesthetics from people like Ken Russell, Mario Bava, Roger Vadim, Norman Jewison, Sergio Leone, Jean Luc Godard, and obviously the hit TV show and the Bond Franchise. His dedication in that department shows, but what compromises the rest is a bland and unoriginal Moonraker like plot. Nevertheless, it's funny and stylish enough to worth the price of admission. Henry Cavill is a bit too mannequin to inspire charm, while Armie Hammer and Alicia Vikander share some of the best moments.
Guy Ritchie's The Man from U.N.C.L.E. takes a trip to the past with style.
Laying it on for a 110 minutes the combination of action and comedy blends well into a spy thriller with a nicely told story and amusing characters. The plot details do spring on surprises from time to time, but ultimately, things never get too difficult to follow or comprehend.
The action never blows it out of the water and the comedy never generates tummy aching laughter; however, they appear in appropriate quantities and in seemingly appropriate times.
Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer contrast each other nicely, with characters that don't blend well together at first glance. Alicia Vikander and Elizabeth Debicki are strong female leads to stay on top with the likes of Cavill and Hammer.
The Man from U.N.C.L.E excels from the story to the set pieces and the characters. Recommendable.
