Man From UNCLE: First Review
REVIEW: The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
After watching this movie, I honestly wish that Armie Hammer was cast as Batman over Ben Affleck. because the chemistry Hammer has with Henry Cavil is EXACTLY how the relationship between Batman and Superman should be (Albeit slightly different because superheros).
I will not spoil the movie, but every-time Hammer an Cavill were together everyone in the theater had their eyes glued to the screen, and when the music kicked in, EVERYONE held their breath. Tensions were high as the Russian Spy, played by an American, squared of against the American Spy, played by a Brit. Never have i felt so tense as these two stared each other down with disgust.
But the movie wasn't just about high tension between the two spies, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. was a PERFECT blend of comedy, action, spy drama, and even a bit of romance. Alicia Amanda Vikander brings a sexy bit of charm and grace to counter the testosterone of the two male leads.
I'm going to say this now. The Man from U.N.C.L.E most certainly has my FAVORITE editing in any motion picture of this year. James Herbert deserves an Oscar for this film because the editing makes the movie better than what the story actually provided. There was one sequence near the end that could have been edited as a traditional action sequence. Instead it was edited in a highly stylized manor that fits the lore and tone of the movie perfectly.
