Though the buddy cop aesthetic is old hat, Cavil and Hammer keep the film afloat...

I enjoyed The Man from U.N.C.L.E well enough, and I suspect you will, too.

It all ends up sounding a bit like The Matrix's Agent Smith doing Roger Moore doing James Bond.

Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer are fine. They're FINE. They're maddeningly, generically fine.

The plot is disposable at best... but [Guy] Ritchie goes all out in reviving the Cold War sixties spy movie style and attitude, recalling Connery's Bond movie with tongue firmly in cheek.

This becomes a film feels like a cover version of a cover version. One that neither sends up old spy cinema nor adds much to it with its trans-Euro express of a plot.

A gigantic leap forward for the mannequin acting community.

Sophisticated and slick, Ritchie's film is far more appealing than his take on Sherlock. ... The dialogue is crisp and as elegant as the film's fashions, production design and Italian locations.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is Ritchie's first film in almost four years and if he is ever to be considered an auteur, which his initial rise promised, he needs to do something spectacular and soon.

The Man Fr om U.N.C.L.E. is pulpy and fluffy, but knows it is, and never sacrifices its joie de vivre. I'd like to see this cast together again - it'd probably be a lot of fun.

Positively in love with the deep-down roots of the genre and the era that spawned them.

Ritchie and company have turned The Man from U.N.C.L.E. into a highly entertaining, immeasurably stylish, and thoroughly enjoyable movie.

Slick, sexy and stylish... U.N.C.L.E. is A-O.K.

With significant performance and plotting issues, the film ends up being about as fun as you could expect and just a little bit more.

There's a bit of a plot twist but it has little impact because by the time it arrives, you just don't care about the characters. Instead, we have to settle for a few clever lines of dialogue, a lovely aesthetic and moderate entertainment value,

The movie is packed with action, wit and charm, with director Ritchie sticking to the roots of the original 60s series.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is not the action movie of the summer -- but it's the one I enjoyed the most.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is tongue in cheek. But still, it's slow going. For a Guy Ritchie movie, that may be the saddest thing to say.

The re-invention might have been better as straight-up thriller. More story and less comedy fails would have helped.

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.
