Daily Express: Swedish beauty Alicia Vikander dazzles in The Man From U.N.C.L.E

From the British Daily Express site:

Gorgeous girls are at the heart of every classic spy movie and the latest blockbuster is no exception. Rising Swedish star Alicia Vikander is the femme fatale in the latest retro-styled spy romp, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Following hot on the heels of Kingsman: The Secret Service, it's a bold remake of the original cult hit 1960's TV show. 
Not the most obvious film project for Guy 'Lock, Stock, Smoking' Ritchie. Then again his recent rollicking reboot of Sherlock Holmes defied expectations to deliver clever thrills aplenty. The gleefully camp and kitchy trailer for his reimagined big screen version of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. looks set to do the same. With Nazis, A bombs and jokes about cross-dressing this is classic 1960's James Bond with a delicious modern twist.
The film stars Brit hunk Henry Cavill as C.I.A. secret agent Napoleon Solo. The role, made famous on TV by Robert Vaughan, is Cavill's first high-profile film since his 2013 Man of Steel and a critical chance for the handsome chap to prove that there is more to him than a chiselled jaw. 
Risng star Alicia Vikander is the obligatory femme fatale with Hugh Grant slipping from leading man status into scene-stealing support roles as security chief Waverley. While recent James Bond films have grittily plunged us into the complex psychological and political situations, this film takes us back to simpler times of secret Nazi criminals and classic car chases over cobbled streets as our dynamic duo race to save the world form catastrophe. It looks like an absolute hoot.
