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’re simply super!
Happy Film loving 🙂
