CAN HE DO IT?

​​THE WEBER MOVIE COUNTDOWN

THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. (2015)


This year's Man From UNCLE remake is #122 of this year's countdown. And it was good fun all the way through. Period look is perfect (early 60s, as this is set up to portray how Solo and Kuryakin first met), cast is engaging, music is perfect. It's a pleasant diversion that was better than I anticipated. No complaints with Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer as the title men. Hugh Grant is quite amusing as Waverley. Big plus: you do not have to know the 60s TV series to enjoy this. Guy Ritchie's direction is solid. Nothing but good things to say from the Weber camp. Recommended.

TLA one-word review: delightful
