You Have a New Code Name: U.N.C.L.E.

Last week I went to the movie theater to see Guy Ritchie's The Man From U.N.C.L.E. starring Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer. I have been wanting to go see it again since then.


Now if you are a huge fan of the original TV show, then you may or may not like the film. The reviews I have seen either highly praise the movie or complain at how it is not like the show at all. I have not seen the show so that did not influence my thoughts on the movie.

There is nothing NOT to love about this film: actors, dialogue, action, soundtrack, filming style, fashion, I loved everything about it. Someone pointed out that the movie seems to take place during 1953 (it shows a clip of President Kennedy) but the fashions or late 60s/Twiggy style. I tend to not let those kind of things bother me, unless its something they got horrible wrong. I watch movies for entertainment though so a few errors timeline-wise don't bother me.

Here are a couple reviews/articles that I enjoyed:

... is a Welcome Vacation From This Summer's Blockbusters
It isn't concerned with being a great, sweeping film, nor is it tethered to some hulking franchise. Sure, there's a rather dour nuclear bomb threat at the end of this tunnel, but Ritchie and co-writer Lionel Wigram are more concerned with floating the audience along on the bubbly journey it takes to get there. Even the action sequences are more concerned with style and humor than with violence.
The Clothes, the Cars, and the Locations Explained

My favorite scene

And now, Alicia 's wardrobe. I pretty much want all of her dresses. This one is my favorite.

Love her sunglasses!!
Really want her earrings here...
This dress also has a cut-out back

I can't wait till this comes out on blu-ray!!!!
