The Man from U.N.C.L.E ( Guy Ritchie – 2015) B+

I liked this much more than I thought I would. It’s a really fun 60’s spy movie with cool characters, good solid direction and an awesome look! The locations, the sets, the actors…it is a superbly shot movie. From Guy Ritchie too. I did not think I’d enjoy another film from this guy since Snatch. The plot revolves around a collaboration between a KGB agent and a CIA spy in order to stop something big from happening. In between them we have a lovely German (or is she British??) damsel who is a key to helping them accomplish their goal. It’s the interaction between those three, their dialogue and timing, and their chemistry that adds so much to the film beyond the convoluted plot. Setting it up mostly in Italy? That helps a whole lot too.
