Movie Review: The Man from U.N.C.L.E.


Its taken over 50 years but they have finally made a movie based on this 1960’s series. Well the series was not that good and neither was this movie. This movie looks like it was shot and created in fragments and the audience has no way of knowing what is going on from one scene to the next or how the scenes are connected. I always wonder how movies like this are made and how someone could cut and direct this film, never realizing that the sequence of events are not explained and the reasons why things happen in this movie make in many instances, no sense at all. The film also is trying to make itself look like it was shot in the 60’s which just makes the movie more difficult to watch.

The female lead in this movie, Alicia Vikander is the only positive part of this whole movie because of her acting and presence on screen. She also played a Robot in the movie Ex Machina which is a movie also reviewed in this blog. Alicia Vikander definitely has a great future making movies, she can act and she looks great on screen.

As far as the Man from U.N.C.L.E. avoid this movie because unless your a huge fan of Alicia Vikander its mostly a forgettable waste of 2 hours.
