The Man From U.N.C.L.E. - Movie Review

the man from uncle imax'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' has the style painted all over its canvas. It's a spy movie that takes advantage of its suave and aesthetic atmosphere too much that the filmmakers focused on that aspect more than making it as a fun side-dish in the movie, ending up to a unfortunately bloated product that could've been an exciting adventure. 
The movie definitely has the charisma though, coming mostly from Henry Cavill, whose American accent was a knock-out. Cavill from the moment we first him, was dashing on the role and too suave to be true. His performance delivers as expected, though his character was a bit bland unlike Armie Hammer's russian spy role. Armie Hammer was the best part in the film IMO, and his hand-trembling movement because of his temper to violence was hilarious. Man, it sucks we don't see him beat up those three young Italian boys haha.

It really forgot to be fun throughout with its action scenes. For an instance, a break-in attempt to rescue a girl in the movie should expected become an intense scene, but then again, it was handled like a comic strip (with literal divisions from a comic book) and you suddenly forgot to care about it. 
the man from uncle imaxIn the end, I really want to like 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' but its the lacking of the fun aspect of it that hinders me to do so. Director Guy Ritchie has the style and flairs and I love that, but it's something that would look more better on paper than onscreen.

The geek rates it 6.5/10!

'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' is now showing in cinemas and IMAX nationwide from Warner Bros. Pictures!
