The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is a smart and stylish adaptation of the 1960s television spy series of the same name. American agent Napoleon Solo and his Russian counterpart Illya Kuryakin work together with East German car mechanic Gaby Teller to foil the plot of an arms dealer who has forced Gaby’s father, an ex-Nazi scientist into constructing an atom bomb. A well-balanced blend of comedy and action, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is an entertaining thriller with a great ensembles cast that should be the foundation of a successful movie franchise (Klaus Ming August 2015).
