English Name: The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
"The Man from U.N.C.L.E", a delicious drama involving suspense, action, thrills and seduction is truly a must watch.This is a period drama with the backdrop of the world war in the 60's and boy-oh-boy, everything from the cars,the props, the costumes and the make up is so good and vintage that it sends u into the flash back mode.There are some clumsily rushed through action scenes in the 2nd half but that does not dampen the entire package.
Director Guy Ritchie keeps the pace uniformly even except for a few moments when the background music seems like its playing a homage to Indian cinema..i mean those violin strains and its long pauses et al.The cast is quite easy on the eyes..with both Henry Cavill (we can forgive you for the awful superman returns reprise) and Armie Hammer(the tough hunk with attitude and grit) locking horns literally and with the crafty wordplay.Both look like Ken dolls waiting to be wooed by the gals.As for the women, Alicia Vikander is all spirit and she reminded me so much of a cocktail Penelope Cruz and Annie Hathway.Elizabeth Debicki is lusciously sexy and wears evil like a cloak with consummate ease.And lets not forget Hugh Grant who may not have much screen time but still has the charm with all his wrinkles and wry smile intact.Some one interested in Notting hill 2!!
Sorry that I am not revealing much about the plot here.This is a movie that needs to be welcomed with lots of smiles/chuckles and a huge tub of popcorn.Fun and sizzle guaranteed in equal proportions.
