The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

This was fun.

This movie is based on the old TV show from the 1960’s.  Henry Cavill stars as CIA agent Napolen Solo and he is forced to work with KGB agent Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer). They met at the beginning of the film and it was not friendly. They are teamed with an East German woman named Gabi (Alicia Vikander).

This is sorta like a Bond movie from the 1960s but without outrageous gadgets. However there is a not special henchman like Jaws or  Oddjob. Maybe one would have helped.

This is very stylish. Maybe it is more style than substance. However it was fun and Cavill was good, showing a charm that he probably won’t get to show as Superman. Hammer is good too. I thought Vikander was fine.

Apparently not a lot of people went to see it in America. Reviews are fairly good. I am not sure why people didn’t go. Maybe it didn’t look exciting enough. Maybe people weren’t interested in a period piece.
