THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. (2015) Review
From directing Sherlock Holmes which starred Robert Downey, Jr. and Jude Law, director Guy Ritchie directs another duo in this sleek and smart spy film, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. The film doesn’t overdo its action sequences which is both an advantage and disadvantage, advantage because it feels fresh and not tiring to watch but on the other hand it loses its potential for the suspense and thrills we like in action films.
Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer both demonstrate their charms and action skills as spies with Alicia Vikander completing their trio. Though you can definitely enjoy the film with its stylish production and camera works and its subtle humor that goes with the characters, the film lacks outlandish presentation of its obstacles. You can see it, yes but how the film demonstrates its complication is not as hard as it should be. Hence, taking away the suspenseful and thrilling sequences the film could offer.
If you’ve seen a Guy Ritchie film, you know The Man from UNCLE is definitely his. But we could use deeper complications to the characters to feel its substance more for a more exciting and thrilling movie experience.
Our rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is now showing in cinemas and IMAX nationwide. Rated PG by the MTRCB.
