The Man From UNCLE in Singapore: the Strait Time Review

117 minutes/3.5 stars

Long on frothiness and light on plot, this is the swinging 1960s as imagined by people who see it as non-stop fun, punctuated by the threat of nuclear war. Based on the cult television series, this origin story introduces secret agent Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) and his frenemy Russian counterpart Ilya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer, both above). Director Guy Ritchie drives the action scenes with unexpected and wonderful R&B and jazz selections. While not quite up there with Steven Soderbergh at his Ocean’s Eleven best in packaging exposition as entertainment – the narration lacks the wryness – Ritchie at least never lets his characters talk narrative when he can show it.
