It’s been a while since “The Man From U.N.C.L.E” came out but I suggested we see it anyways and I believe that was not a bad choice. Though you should not expect an unbelievably original plot going into this flick, you will be presented with a funny one which makes this movie quite fun to watch. The acting performances weren’t bad either, though they might be a bit stereotypical, but adds to the comedic side of the film. Furthermore I liked the music and for what it’s worth I don’t really have any complaints about “The Man From U.N.C.L.E” and I believe you’ll have a fun time watching it.

I'm going to start this off by telling you I'm not the biggest fan of the Spy genre and I rarely watch them because of that. With that in mind, I went into 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' with reasonably low expectations. Gladly, I was pleasantly surprised with what I saw. While the plot was as thin as you can get and the twists were as predictable as they could be with these types of movies, I still had a fun time watching it. This is mainly due to the directing of Guy Ritchie, who puts a lot of style in every frame and set piece. All the characters are also charismatic and fine in their role. Overall, I can safely recommend 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' to everybody who wants to waste 2 hours with a fun action comedy.

@Conclusion

“The Man From U.N.C.L.E” is a spy movie which you can see as more of a lighthearted version of the James Bond franchise, even though Bond boasts some good humor and a lot of style as well. However, this spy flick is undeniably more focused on the humor and the style instead of substance and this is not a bad thing. Guy Ritchie knew exactly what he was doing with his limited plot and he made up for it with some great directing, good music and ultimately he reached his goal of making a funny spy movie. Besides the plot and the humor, all the characters were quite charismatic and stereotypical though this last aspect was able to add another comedic facet to the film. Altogether, we would recommend “The Man From U.N.C.L.E” because it’s a fun time.
