If you tuned in to watch Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin fight crime on The Man from U.N.C.L.E TV series in 1964, then chances are this modern, big-screen adaptation will be right up your alley.
The rejuvenated The Man from U.N.C.L.E film, directed by Guy Ritchie, is a sassy and exciting ride that pays homage to the original series. Henry Cavil stars as our lead, Solo, alongside Armie Hammer as Kuryakin and Hugh Grant as Waverly.
When CIA agent Solo and KGB agent Kuryakin are thrown together and forced to be partners, they must put aside their longstanding resentment to fight a mysterious international criminal syndicate that is trying to wreak havoc with nuclear weapons.
The film brings the original characters and story concept back to life through the edge-of-your-seat action, physical humour and funny dialogue, such as the playful line, “For a special agent you’re not having a very special day, are you?,” delivered by Hugh Grant.
