The Man from UNCLE

{4.5/5} “Don’t ever make the calamitous error of mistaking my deliberate shortsightedness for blindness.”

The Man from UNCLE, released in 2015

Napoleon Solo works for the CIA, after having gone on a spree of art theft across Europe. He’s in East Berlin to grab the daughter of a scientist whose knowledge of nuclear weapons they don’t want to fall into the wrong hands. Now he must work with Ilya Kuryakin, a superhuman KGB agent, to find the scientist before he’s forced to build a bomb for a criminal organization.

It’s based on an old TV show, which I haven’t seen.

It’s lots of fun, starting with the opening scene. It’s about cool spies saving the world.

Stars Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander, and Hugh Grant. Directed by Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes). The playful music is by Daniel Pemberton. There are also some great 60s songs.
