#Movie Mom : Had lots of fun watching The Man From U.N.C.L.E. #spyfilm #coldwarmovie #sixtiesvibe #MFRWorg

Movie Mom

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. directed by Guy Ritchie is a fun, spy film set in an international backdrop with fast cars, great chases and interesting women. It's 1963, East Berlin, when an ex-con turned CIA agent named Napoleon Solo has to track down Gabby Teller, a mechanic, whose father was a Nazi scientist and had worked for the U.S. government. He teams with a almost indestructable Russian Agent, Illya Kuryakin to get her to lead them to her missing parent.

Henry Cavill is the suave and debonair Napoleon Solo, Armie Hammer as Illya Kuryakin, and Hugh Grant makes a guest appearance as their British boss.

My thoughts: I liked this movie. Sometimes, critics pick apart films and forget they are about entertainment. Not every movie is Oscar-worthy. 

UNCLE wasn't boring. Moved quickly. Great costuming and witty banter. Fabulous touches which only could be found in a Guy Ritchie movie. We moviegoers are transported to the sixties.

I enjoyed this one more that MI:Rogue Nation (except for Simon Pegg).

Now for the honest-to-God confession: Have you seen the television show? (VB raising her hand here).

Hi, Angela! I thought the show was so hip. Fun!

Hi, Cathy! My memory was a little bit shady too.

I'm planning to go see this, so was glad you didn't include spoilers. I am hoping for some good easter eggs from the previous show. I was a young teen when it was on, and my girlfriend and I both had crushes on Illya. :)

Hi, Kayelle! Who wouldn't have crushes on those guys? So suave and debonair. Let me know what you think!
