THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. (2015): Stylish & Fun

Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander, Hugh Grand and Elizabeth Debicki star in Director Guy Ritchie’s latest spy movie, The Man From U.N.C.L.E ( U.N.C.L.E meaning United Network Command for Law and Enforcement).

I was initially quite concerned after watching the trailer for The Man From U.N.C.L.E. because I feared that the film would contain one or two very questionable accents. I’m neither Russian nor American, so perhaps I’m not the right person to say, but both Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer’s respective American and Russian accents sound rather above board to me.

As for the movie’s spectacle, I found The Man From U.N.C.L.E. adequately entertaining. The story, style and everything in the film, including all aspects of design, namely the fashion, cars and interiors… all of it plus the dialogue did just enough to keep me watching.

I also really enjoyed a relatively short but beautifully captured moment of rage towards the end of the movie. Though, overall, I strongly doubt whether there’ll ever be a Guy Ritchie movie that could unseat the top positions that

his first two films, Lock Stock And Two Smoking Barrels (1998) and Snatch (2000) continue to hold in my heart and mind.

Tune in to The Man From U.N.C.L.E. for the design / style and if you haven’t already, make time for Ritchie’s very smart first two movies. They are super!

Happy Film loving 🙂

Read my spoiler-free movie review of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015)


I’m a Guy Ritchie fan, thanks to his first two big hit films, Lock Stock & Two smoking Barrels (1998) and Snatch (2000).

Fast forward to 2015 and the release of his latest film The Man From U.N.C.L.E. will soon be upon us. There’s plenty going on in the trailer and I for one am quite intrigued.

Starring Henry Cavill (a.k.a. Superman), Alicia Vikander, Armie Hammer, Hugh Grant and Elizabeth Debicki, I’m going to trust inRitchie’s track record of great style, storytelling and witty dialogue. 

There’ll also be some crossed fingers in hopes of the absence of dodgy accents.

Happy The Man From U.N.C.L.E. 🙂
