These days it seems as though what is old is new again and that is no different in the wide world of films. With this in mind, some remakes have been very well done while others have fallen short. With such a mixture o how these films are received, is it any wonder than watching the remake of the 1964 original, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. there was relatively little in the way of expectations, but in the end that was a gross underestimation of the film.
This remake is a definite hark back to the original spy movies, between the Americans and the Russians. It lies at the very aspect of the cold war dynamic that existed between these two warring nations, that should the need arise, cooperation between the two was not out of the question as can be seen in this film.
Now to the more exciting and eye grabbing portion of the movie, that's right, the two very handsome gentlemen in the leading roles. Playing the American spy we have the man of steel himself, Henry Cavill and starring opposite him, as the Russian, we have the very gorgeous Armie Hammer, with these two at the helm at very least you get some decent eye candy out of watching this film. But there is so much more to it than that, it is film that shouldn't be missed.
It's got spies and Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer, you can't give this movie anything other than 3.5/5.
