F. Entertainment: "Guy Ritchie's back with a spy thriller that's stylish, fun and good-looking"

Suave young(ish) actors, sneering eyebrows, snazzy one liners, crackling camerawork, peppy music, split screen action montages – all the elements of Guy Ritchie’s signature style are present in his latest film, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. This is the kind of film that Ritchie’s fans expect and want more of, and on that front, it delivers. If you’re expecting anything more, you’ll have to look elsewhere. Ritchie apologists, read on.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E is based on the 1964 gonzo-style, spy-comedy series of the same name. The film project has been in development for years - Steven Soderbergh was originally attached to it, but it changed hands so often that fans of the TV show gave up on the movie. When Guy Ritchie finally found himself at the helm, it was clear that he was the perfect choice for the stylistic verve of the story.

It’s the 1960s, and after World War II, America has decided to have some fun spy missions in Europe, for our entertainment, of course. Thief-turned-CIA agent Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) is sent on a mission to find a certain Gaby (Alicia Vikander), who may or may not be the daughter of a Nazi nuclear scientist on the verge of inventing an atomic bomb. Coincidentally, the Russians send a KGB spy, Ilya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) to get in Napoleon’s way. In a twist of fate, the two men are forced to team up and track down the aforementioned Nazi nuclear scientist, as well as steal the atomic bomb plans for their own nations.
