THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. (Theatrical Release USA 2015)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.8|5.0 Starsìììì

The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
bases its entertainment value on a sharp and witty script. The film has ‘smarts’ and shows strong imagination. The film’s cinematography is some of the best Hollywood has to offer and uses a diverting montage technique to good effect. The casting becomes above average with the teaming of Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer as main characters Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin. Cavill has a natural feel for interpretation of character which shows in this film just as well as it did in Man of Steel where he more than outperformed Christopher Reeves in his interpretation of Superman. While veteran actor Hugh Grant seems a little weak in his rendition of character Alexander Waverly, he still maintains a strong screen presence which adds to overall story effect.
