So how many of you know of the original TV show ‘The Man from U.N.C.L.E. I take it not very many of you. Well Hollywood has dug up another old TV show and made it a movie. If the trailer is any indication then this looks like a good adaptation.
The movie stars Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer and direct by Guy Ritchie. Just having Guy Ritchie at the helm makes me want to see this. The film has a very stylished look from the 60’s and the same look and unique style of Guy Ritchie.
“Set against the backdrop of the early 1960s, at the height of the Cold War, “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” centers on CIA agent Solo and KGB agent Kuryakin. Forced to put aside longstanding hostilities, the two team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organization, which is bent on destabilizing the fragile balance of power through the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology. The duo’s only lead is the daughter of a vanished German scientist, who is the key to infiltrating the criminal organization, and they must race against time to find him and prevent a worldwide catastrophe.”
