The Man From U.N.C.L.E Movie Review:
After more than a month it is screened in my city. I, finally watched “The Man from U.N.C.L.E” last Monday. I went to see this movie after comparing it with other movies that are being screened nowadays in my city like “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Hitman: Agent 47, The Transported Refueled, and Fantastic Four. And I am saying happily now that I took the right decision. I am a big “movie buff” and rarely miss any good Hollywood flick. For me, in a movie three elements are vital namely Music, Acting and Story line. Now talking of U.N.C.L.E one can safely say this movie scores in all aforementioned departments. The start of the movie itself is very nice and for me it sets the tone of what we are going to experience in next 2 hours. The car chasing scene at the start of the movie is really a delight to watch.
There are few other action scenes too that are good to watch. Talking of the cast you can say it’s “Perfecto”…! I can’t imagine anybody else in place of “Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer and Alicia Vikander”. These three are the heart of this movie. The supporting cast too is well picked and they all have given their best. If, I have to judge this movie solely on its story line then it would be little tough for me to applaud this movie as it has an ordinary story. But when we put, the acting, music, cinematography, and story-line together this movie without a doubt becomes a treat to watch. Talking of the dresses and cars used in the movie, it gives you a very ‘authentic’ feeling of the 1960s. The music of the movie is really one of the best I have noticed in recent times. I found the full soundtrack of “The Man from U.N.C.L.E” on You Tube and really enjoyed it. One thing that disappointed me about this movie is it’s end. After watching the movies I felt as if the “inflated balloon just busted” without any sound. The movie started well and paced well in the middle but, somehow towards the end it lost its charm. What I am trying to say is that “the end” could have been more appealing and exciting rather dull that it is. Anyway we can forgive Guy Ritchie for this as overall he has given us a good movie.
My Favorite Characters of The Man From U.N.C.L.E:
Armie Hammer (Ilya Kuryakin): Well, to be true I never heard of this guy before this movie. But, after seeing his performance in this movie I have become a huge fan of him. More because of his look and “Russian English Accent” than his performance in The Man from U.N.C.L.E. He is portrayed as a tough Russian KGB agent who only knows one way of doing things and that is “through the use of power”. His romance with Miss Vikander (Gabi) and his never-ending tussle with Henry Cavill (Napoleon Solo) is a treat to watch. For me he took it away from our Superman Mr. Cavill.
Alicia Vikander (Gaby Teller): I saw her first in “Seventh Son” and felt that she is a talented actress who has a lot to offer to us and after seeing her performance in this movie I am quite satisfied with her progress. Alicia looks very genuine in her approach towards the role of Gaby. Her character is very written and she has done full justice to it.
My Rating of The Man from U.N.C.L.E:
I gave 9 out of 10 to The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Mainly because of the fact that compared to the films that are running nowadays in theaters it is very refreshing and makes you happy. And overall it is a good to watch movie with its 1960s Cold War era theme and some awesome acting by the actors. On the top of everything the “Music” of “The Man from U.N.C.L.E” is very pleasing to ears.
My Verdict of The Man from U.N.C.L.E:
If you are looking to see some “spy” based comic movie then go for The Man from U.N.C.L.E. It is a very well-balanced package with occasional pieces of “laughter” and “thrilling action”. Above all, whosoever loves the US-Russian rivalry of Cold War Era will surely love this movie like I did.
