"Why so many blockbuster movies about saving the world? Hamlet helps provide an answer."

Sir Laurence Olivier in the 1948 British film adaptation of William Shakespeare's "Hamlet", which Olivier adapted and directed

If you went out to the movies this summer, I’m betting you saw yet another movie about saving the world. It’s such a familiar plot, it’s worth asking: Why? Why does this theme keep recurring? We know what most reviewers will say. Those cynics, echoing the words of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, will opine that here again is another tale of “dull revenge”.

The threat of nuclear annihilation drives the plot of the stylish new film version of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (“United Network Command for Law and Enforcement,” a fictional spy agency), set in 1963. Although the American spy Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) and the Soviet spy Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) are Cold War enemies, they team up to defeat a nuclear threat from retrograde Nazi lunatics.

This dynamic duo makes for an interesting pair. They double one another in comparable ways. Spies we expect to be enemies turn out to have more in common than they are prepared to admit.
