In the early 1960s, CIA agent Solo and KGB agent Kuryakin are forced to put aside longstanding hostilities, the two team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organization, which is bent on destabilizing the fragile balance of power.
Action Adventure Comedy - This adaptation of the popular 1960s TV series is not only a fairly
lighthearted spy adventure like the original, but also set in the
'60s Cold War time period. Fans of leads Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer,
and Alicia Vikander will enjoy, but Hugh Grant has only a small role.
While content is fairly mild, violence and sexual innuendo make the
film of caution to parents.
PROFANITY: 4 miscellaneous profanities. SEX/NUDITY: Overheard sex and fleeting unrelated nudity. VIOLENCE: Fights and shootings with very little blood. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Tobacco and frequent alcohol. ACTION: Chases, fights, explosions. COMEDY: Constant dry banter; physical gags.
Roger EbertFull Review Average ...only intermittently engaging and amusing, and those portions of the movie that succeed are also frustrating. Because they're cushioned by enervated, conceptually befuddled, and sometimes outright indifferent stuff.
USA TodayFull Review Average While (some) moments give U.N.C.L.E. some spark, a forgettable and clunky plot and a dearth of really good spy shenanigans keep this Man from being as explosively groovy as it could be.
Rolling StoneFull Review Above Average Vikander makes her (character) a live wire. Her impromptu dance with Kuryakin that ends in a wrestling match is, well, something to see. So is the movie, when Ritchie ignores the tangled story-line and goes for pure escapist retro fun.
